This Recommendation | 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 | ISO/IEC 7498-4. This Recommendation | 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 | ISO/IEC 10040.
This Recommendation | 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
? defines the services provided by the function;
? defines generic notification type; and
? specifies the protocol that is necessary in order to provide the services.
This Recommendation | 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
? 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.
