Download Speed Monitor

This component monitor measures the time it takes to download data from the target node, and reports the speed in KB/s (1024 bytes per second). The target node must be running a Character Generator service.

For an overview about component monitors, see Work with SAM component monitors.

Statistic

The statistic for this component monitor is the download speed in KB/s (1024 bytes per second).

Field descriptions

Description

A default description of the monitor. You can override the default description by adding to or replacing the text, which is automatically saved. The variable to access this field is ${UserDescription}.

Changing the default description to specify what will be monitored can be helpful when receiving alerts and notifications later.

Enable Component

Determines if the component is enabled. Disabling the component leaves it in a deactivated state that does not influence its application availability or status, as displayed in the Orion Web Console.

Port Number

The port used for the character generator service. The default value is 19.

Download Sample Size (kb)

The amount of data in kilobytes (kb) you want to download from the node for testing the download speed.

Convert Value

Select the Convert Value check box to open the Formula box. From here, you can manipulate the returned value with a variety of mathematical possibilities. You can choose common functions from the drop-down lists to manipulate the returned value, or you can select the Custom Conversion option. See Convert values in data transformations for SAM component monitors for more information.

Response Time Threshold

Set the warning and critical threshold conditions based on the response time. The response time is the time in milliseconds it takes SAM to determine that a component is not Down and to retrieve any statistical data. See Application Monitor Thresholds.

Statistic Threshold

Specify when a threshold that indicates a warning or critical level has been breached. Logical operators are in the drop-down followed by a blank field for you to enter the value of this threshold. For example: Less than 15 for warning, Less than 5 for critical. See Application Monitor Thresholds.

User Notes

Add notes for easy reference. You can access this field by using the variable, ${UserNotes}.
