    What specifically are you looking to measure?  From an appliance viewpoint, I typically see SNMP polls for metrics such as memory utilization, load utilization, etc.  The developerWorks article John Rasmussen and I wrote a few years back is getting dated, but it would still be a good starting point.  http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/websphere/library/techarticles/1003_rasmussen/1003_rasmussen.html  The article also discusses application metrics.  For example, you might want to measure how many transactions per second your particular service is receiving.  That can also be accomplished using SNMP, but the SNMP OIDs will change as the configuration changes, so you need to beware of that and have your SNMP client updated when new application configuration is deployed to your application domain.  I've seen numerous SNMP clients at customers that will then graphically show these metrics over a historical interval.

    Regards,

    Steve
