International Standard defines a systems management function which may be used by an application process in a centralized or decentralized environment to interact for the purposes of systems-management, as defined by CCITT Rec. X.700
International Standard defines the response time monitoring function that consists of services, functional units, generic definitions and protocols. It is positioned in the application layer of ITU-T Rec. X.200
ISO/IEC 7498 and is defined according to the model provided by ISO/IEC 9545. The role of systems management functions are described by ITU-T Rec. X.701
International Standard: establishes user requirements for the response time monitoring function; . establishes a model that relates the services and generic definitions provided by this function to user requirements; . defines the services provided by the function; . defines generic notification type; and . specifies the protocol that is necessary in order to provide the services.
International Standard does not: define the nature of any implementation intended to provide the response time monitoring function; . specify the manner in which management is accomplished by the use of the response time monitoring; . define the nature of any interactions which result in the use of the response time monitoring; . specify the services necessary for the establishment, normal and abnormal release of a management association; . preclude the definition of further notification types.
The functions and the management information defined in this Recommendation
International Standard include: Summarization of the response time on any request of information and its management; . Definition of the relationship on response monitoring; . Setting and modification of the monitoring and the summarization conditions; . Scheduling of the monitoring and the summarization; and . Notification when response information or its statistical result is over a threshold. The functions and the management information defined in this Recommendation
International Standard do not include: Management information definitions for summarization of response time statistical; . How to retrieve response times locally (e.g., the test function to confirm response times); and . Local mechanisms to summarize information related to the response request and response.
