How to Monitor IBM WebSphere Liberty Using eG Enterprise?
The broad steps for monitoring IBM WebSphere Liberty using eG Enterprise are as follows:
- Managing the IBM WebSphere Liberty server
- Configuring the tests
These steps have been discussed in this topic.
Managing the IBM WebSphere Liberty server
The IBM WebSphere Liberty server cannot be automatically discovered by eG Enterprise. This implies that you will have to manually add the server into the eG Enterprise system to manage it. Follow the steps below to achieve the same:
- Follow the Components - > Add/Modify menu sequence in the Infrastructure tile menu of the eG admin interface.
- Next, select IBM WebSphere Liberty from the Component type drop-down and then click the Add New Component button.
When Figure 1 appears, provide the Host IP/Name of the IBM WebSphere Liberty server that you want to manage.
- Then, provide a Nick name for the server.
- The Port number will be set as 9080 by default. If the IBM WebSphere Liberty server is listening on a different port in your environment, then override this default setting.
- By default, the IBM WebSphere Liberty server is monitored in an agent-based manner. Therefore, just pick an external agent from the External agents list box and click the Add button to add the component for monitoring.
- Finally, click the Signout button at the right, top corner of the eG admin interface to sign out.
Configuring the tests
When you try to sign out of the eG admin interface, a LIST OF UNCONFIGURED TESTS page will appear, revealing the list of tests mapped to the IBM WebSphere Liberty server that require manual configuration:

To know how to specify the parameters, refer to WebSphere Liberty Connection Pools Test.
When you signout of the eG admin interface, you will be prompted to configure the Processes and Windows Services test. To know how to configure the Processes test and the Windows Services test, refer to the Monitoring Unix and Windows Servers document.
After configuring the Processes and Windows Services test, sign out of the eG administrative interface. Then, login to the eG monitoring console to view the state of and metrics reported by the specialized monitoring model that eG Enterprise offers for the IBM WebSphere Liberty server.
