WebLogic Monitoring

Using the JMX (Java Management Extension) protocol, NeoLoad is able to monitor your WebLogic servers during the test. These monitors require no specific installation on your server and are not intrusive (no WAR to install, no classpath to change …).

Features

  • Preconfigured Monitoring: Each module ships pre-configured with the performance counters tailored to your system.
  • Threshold Alerts: NeoLoad provides threshold values –derived from industry best practices- to raise the appropriate alerts.
  • Agentless Monitoring: The design of our monitoring modules, based on industry standards, ensures non-intrusive remote monitoring.
  • Real Time: The counter values and the threshold alerts are available as soon as the test is run.
  • Import: Import data from external monitoring tools.

Note: All the modules are included with the free edition.

Performance Counters

WebLogic monitors are divided into 7 categories:

  • Server. This section allows the user to monitor the sockets open for each server. (2 monitors)
  • JDBC Connection Pool. This section allows the user to monitor the JDBC connection pool counters. The counters are available for each server or connection pool. (13 counters: number of physical database connections, highest number of seconds an application waited for a connection, etc.).
  • Rockit. This section allows the user to monitor the runtime counters for each server instance on the JRockit Virtual Machine. (9 counters: heap used, average load, number of threads …).
  • JVM. This section allows the user to collect information for each server on the Java Virtual Machine. (2 counters: available memory and memory size).
  • Connector. A connector component (also called a resource adapter) is a system-level software driver used by an application server such as WebLogic Server to connect to an EIS. A resource adapter serves as the „J2EE connector.“ The WebLogic J2EE Connector Architecture supports resource adapters developed by Enterprise Information Systems (EISes) vendors and third-party application developers that can be deployed on any application server supporting the Sun Microsystems J2EE Platform Specification, Version 1.3. Resource adapters contain the Java, and if necessary, the native components required to interact with the EIS.
  • (2 counters: total connection pool size and current connection pool size).
  • JMS. This section allows the user to monitor the JMS runtime counters for each server instance. (6 counters: current connections, total servers, etc.).
  • JTA. This section allows the user to monitor the transaction counters for each server instance. (11 counters: total transactions, total committed total rolled back, etc.).
  • EJB.  This section allows the user to monitor all instances, transactions and cache counters for each EAR deployed on this server, and for each EJB contained therein.
  • Thread.  Monitors thread pool information for the WebLogic Server. (WebLogic 9 only)
  • Channel.  This section allows the user to monitor the channels (network access points from the WebLogic Server). The counters are available for each channel. (WebLogic 9 only)
