WebLogic Performance Monitoring & Tuning
Monitoring and Managing WebLogic Applications is a Challenge
Weblogic performance issues such as slow-downs impact your business resulting in lost revenues, customer dissatisfaction & poor reputation.
Weblogic troubleshooting requires indentifying the source of the problem - is it the database? the network? your application? or the messaging server?
Troubleshooting Multi-Tier WebLogic Applications is Hard!
- Your mission-critical business services are now running on the Internet.
- You have deployed a scalable, multi-tier infrastructure with web front-ends, middleware application servers such as Oracle WebLogic hosting the business logic, and backend databases for data access.
- Yet you are finding times when user accesses to your business service are slow, or the service is not available.
- You need to know where is the bottleneck is: the network? the web front-end? the Oracle WebLogic application server? your application logic? the database server? your queries?
Multi-tier WebLogic applications are often hard to troubleshoot. A performance problem in one tier (e.g., the database)
can impact all the other tiers (e.g., WebLogic server, Web server).
While multi-tier application infrastructures offer a variety of scalability and extensibility benefits, they are also more difficult to operate and manage for many reasons:
- Each tier performs a different task and has its own administration and monitoring tool. So it is difficult for you to get a unified view of the service end-to-end.
- It is unreasonable to expect that a single IT operator has expertise with each of the application tiers.
- With a multi-tier application, often one tier depends on another (e.g., the middleware WebLogic application tier depends on the database tier). So a slow-down in one tier impacts all the other tiers. Troubleshooting and diagnosis is very hard because it is difficult to determine where a problem originated and where its effects are.
Comprehensive, end-to-end monitoring of the availability and performance of the WebLogic application infrastructure is required to determine where the bottleneck lies. The eG Enterprise suite offers in-depth monitoring of every layer of every tier of the infrastructure. Service performance is monitored by external emulation of user accesses to the infrastructure or by using passive monitors for web server front-ends. Customized monitors for middleware application servers like WebLogic and WebSphere offer visibility into the performance of the key business logic components that are hosted on these servers. In-depth visibility into WebLogic's JRockit or Sun Java Virtual Machine (JVM) enables operators to see the critical threads running in the JVM, detect unexpected synchronization issues between threads, identify runaway threads and pin-point the exact line of code that is causing the problem. The usage of the database connection pools and the most expensive queries to the database are reported as part of eG Enterprise's detailed diagnosis capability. Using a patented root-cause analysis engine, eG Enterprise analyzes the performance of the network, server, applications, and database tiers and correlates these metrics in real-time and to determine where the bottlenecks are.
