Gateway Service for NetWare Object

Updated: March 28, 2003

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

The Gateway Service for NetWare performance object consists of counters that measure packet transmission rates and activity of the Gateway for NetWare service.

 

Counter Name Description Counter Type

Bytes Received/sec

Shows the rate of bytes coming in to the Redirector from the network. It includes all application data in addition to network protocol information (such as packet headers.)

PERF_COUNTER_BULK_COUNT

Bytes Total/sec

Shows the rate the Redirector is processing data bytes. It includes all application and file data in addition to protocol information.

PERF_COUNTER_BULK_COUNT

Bytes Transmitted/sec

Shows the rate at which bytes are leaving the Redirector to the network. It includes all application in addition to network protocol information.

PERF_COUNTER_BULK_COUNT

Connect NetWare 2.x

Shows the number of connections to NetWare 2.x servers.

PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT

Connect NetWare 3.x

Shows the number of connections to NetWare 3.x servers.

PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT

Connect NetWare 4.x

Shows the number of connections to NetWare 4.x servers.

PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT

File Data Operations/sec

Shows the rate at which the Redirector is processing data operations. One operation includes many bytes but can be reduced because each packet has protocol overhead. You can determine the efficiency of this path by dividing the value of Bytes/sec by this counter to determine the average number of bytes transferred per operation.

PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER

File Read Operations/sec

Shows the rate at which applications are asking the Redirector for data. Each call to a file system or similar API call counts as one operation.

PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER

File Write Operations/sec

Shows the rate at which applications are sending data to the Redirector. Each call to a file system or similar API call counts as one operation.

PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER

Packet Burst IO/sec

Shows the sum of the values of Gateway Services for NetWare\Packet Burst Read NCPs/sec and Gateway Services for NetWare\Packet Burst Write NCPs/sec.

PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER

Packet Burst Read NCP Count/sec

Shows the rate of NetWare Core Protocol requests for Packet Burst Read. Packet Burst is a windowing protocol that improves performance.

PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER

Packet Burst Read Timeouts/sec

Shows the rate the NetWare Service needs to retransmit a Burst Read Request because the NetWare server took too long to respond.

PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER

Packet Burst Write NCP Count/sec

Shows the rate of NetWare Core Protocol requests for Packet Burst Write.

PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER

Packet Burst Write Timeouts/sec

Shows the rate at which the NetWare Service needs to retransmit a Burst Write Request because the NetWare server took too long to respond.

PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER

Packets Received/sec

Shows the rate at which the Redirector is receiving packets (SMBs). Network transmissions are divided into packets. The average number of bytes received in a packet can be obtained by dividing the value of Gateway Services for NetWare\Bytes Received/sec by this counter. Some packets received might not contain incoming data, for example an acknowledgment to a write made by the Redirector would count as an incoming packet.

PERF_COUNTER_BULK_COUNT

Packets Transmitted/sec

Shows the rate at which the Redirector is sending packets. Network transmissions are divided into packets. The average number of bytes transmitted in a packet can be obtained by dividing the value of Bytes Transmitted/sec by this counter.

PERF_COUNTER_BULK_COUNT

Packets/sec

Shows the rate the Redirector is processing data packets. One packet typically includes many bytes but can be reduced because each packet has protocol overhead. You can determine the efficiency of this path by dividing the value of Gateway Services for NetWare\Bytes Total/sec by this counter to determine the average number of bytes transferred/packet. You can also divide this counter by the value of Operations/sec to determine the average number of packets per operation.

PERF_COUNTER_BULK_COUNT

Read Operations Random/sec

Shows the rate at which, on a file-by-file basis, nonsequential reads are made. If a read is made using a particular file handle, and then is followed by another read that is not the contiguous next byte, this counter is incremented by one.

PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER

Read Packets/sec

Shows the rate at which read packets are being placed on the network. Each time a single packet is sent with a request to read data remotely, this counter is incremented by one.

PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER

Server Disconnects

Shows the number of times that a server has disconnected your Redirector. See also Server Reconnects.

PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT

Server Reconnects

Shows the number of times the Redirector has had to reconnect to a server to complete a new active request. You can be disconnected by the Server if you remain inactive for too long. Locally even if all your remote files are closed, the Redirector will keep your connections intact for ten minutes. Such inactive connections are called Dormant Connections. Reconnecting is expensive in time.

PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT

Server Sessions

Shows the total number of security objects that the Redirector has managed. For example, a logon to a server followed by a network access to the same server will establish one connection, but two sessions.

PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT

Write Operations Random/sec

Shows the rate at which, on a file-by-file basis, nonsequential writes are made.

PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER

Write Packets/sec

Shows the rate at which writes are being sent to the network. Each time a single packet is sent with a request to write remote data, this counter is incremented by one.
