In Framework 4.1.1, there is a new performance measurement attribute available that will give you a measurement of average login time for endpoints.
Framework stores the average time taken for the last 20 initial logins and normal logins for each gateway in two attributes viz. avg_ilogin_time and avg_nlogin_time respectively. This value will be updated continuously as the endpoints login.
You can get these measurement values using the following idlattr command.
$ oid=`wlookup -ar Gateway
$ idlattr -tvg $oid avg_ilogin_time ulong
$ idlattr -tvg $oid avg_nlogin_time ulong
I would think that the time unit for this measurement would be milli-seconds but I could not find any document to confirm.
Just a word of caution: You should never change these values.
Hope you find it useful.

How to find average endpoint login times per gateway
Okay, you want to find out how fast a particular gateway is processing endpoint logins relative to its peers. Everyone knows that one could never get an apples-to-apples comparison of a gateway's performance relative to another's. Or for that matter, even if you take one gateway, its performance varies from time to time.
