CICS TRANRATE Alerts from low-activity regions/ inconsistent values

I am still working on implementing alert notifications from SYSView. I am coding and attempting to test the rules on a system with no activity. To enable testing I set low thresholds for some of these. For example, I have a TRANRATE rule set to WARN at 1.6 transactions per second, with a PROBLEM level of 2. I initially triggered the alert by just holding the enter key to flood a single transaction. The generated alert seems to contain fractional values instead of numbers greater than 1. And the rule continued to generate alerts even after I ceased entering transactions.

TRANRATE typically shows as decimals and TSUMRATE shows as an integer. TSUMRATE is trans/minute (number of trans that ran in the prior minute). TRANRATE is trans/second (number of trans that ran in the prior minute, divided by 60 secs). So defining a threshold for either is basically measuring the same thing, just using different units (rate vs. count).
