Introduction

IBM WebSphere Liberty is a fast, dynamic, easy-to-use Java EE application server. The IBM WebSphere Liberty is not only ideal for developers but also ready for production, on-premises or in the cloud. IBM WebSphere Liberty is a combination of IBM technology and open source software, with fast startup times (<2 seconds), no server restarts to pick up changes, and a simple XML configuration. The IBM WebSphere Liberty supports two models of application deployment:

  • Deploy an application by dropping it into the dropins directory.
  • Deploy an application by adding it to the server configuration file.

Like any other application server, performance setbacks suffered by the IBM WebSphere Liberty server too can affect the availability of critical services offered. To avoid such an eventuality, you need to continuously monitor the performance of the IBM WebSphere Liberty server.
