We are looking to capture KPI metrics from SFG in terms of max/min file size, cpu/memory usage

We are generating key monthly usage metrics from SFG.

Here are some sample metrics....

Max/min file size

Max/Min/Avg CPU

Max/Avg memory

Usage by protocol

    Thank you for taking the time to provide your ideas to IBM.

    For max/min file size - this is an enhancement we are planning for as part of our work on refreshing the SFG Admin UI. We will add this criteria into our designs for new reports.

    For max/min/avg CPU and memory usage - this is something best monitored using existing JMX functionality or external tools that can report on the environment resource usage. This is something likely not offered OOTB as external tools do a better job at this kind of reporting.

    For usage by protocol - we will also consider this as part of the design work for the new SFG Admin UI, i.e. Trading Partner file volumes per protocol.

    As such, I will mark this RFE as a future consideration pending our future release of the new SFG Admin UI.
