Issue/Introduction

I want to know what are the meaning of parameters in a SiteMinder Protect URL.

For example: Please see the red words.

http://myserver.example.com/siteminderagent/forms/login.fcc?TYPE=33554433&REALMOID=06-9aa1c20d-b46e-45fd-a403-3ae81dde527f&GUID=&SMAUTHREASON=0&METHOD=GET&SMAGENTNAME=-SM-w3dV36e68yCIR5tc7GS1eMS7fXDH86nv4F2NOsUOmIR2wk04SCtHc12pTBV%2fJMk8&TARGET=-SM-http%3a%2f%2fmyserver%2eexample%2ecom%2fmyasp%2f

Could you tell me what do the words mean? or any document?
