We're running a Policy Server and we'd like to know how to monitor
authentication and authorization response times in order to evaluate
performance of Siteminder Policy Server ? Is there such a functionality ?




Policy Server 12.8SP3 on RedHat 7;




At first glance, Policy Server logs and traces are for debugging the
services and transactions.

In order to monitor the authentication and authorization response
times and other activities, we rather you to use 2 other tools :

    - Oneview Monitor;
    - SNMP pooling;

The OneView monitoring gives you instant statistics, at the time you
consult the stats. The SNMP pooling will help you to get instant
monitoring as per OneView monitor, plus it allow you to keep
historical data, and depending the tool you use to get the SNMP data,
you can build graphs on the current and historical data.
