Issue/Introduction

This article will describe how an end-user can research what TCP/IP traffic makes up the "OTHER" category as seen on the IP Growth Tracker screen /IPGT

Hello, Under the IP Growth Tracker and then TCP Traffic Growth, what is included in the field/grouping of "Other" ?

Environment

Network Management NetMaster for TCPIP R12.2 

Resolution

The OTHER field comprises of all traffic that is not one of the other identified server traffic.namely CICS, Db2, IMS, MQ, IBM Telnet, and IBM Web servers.  As of R12.2 there is no way in the product to drill down to determine what actually makes up OTHER; however, you can go to the TCPIP: Address Space Traffic Screen (/IPTRS and select "Address Space'), and scroll right to the Totals page. Here you can perform a SORT in order to determine what servers send the most traffic. The screen will NOT show Db2, CICS classifications.
