WebSphere Liberty Web Applications Test

This test auto-discovers the web applications deployed on the IBM WebSphere Liberty and reports the current state of each web application. Using this test, administrators can easily identify the web applications that stopped in the recent past.

Target of the test : An IBM WebSphere Liberty

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each web application deployed on the target IBM WebSphere Liberty server being monitored

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameters Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.


The host for which the test is to be configured.


The port number at which the specified host listens.

Service URL Path

For the eG agent to collect metrics from the target IBM WebSphere Liberty server, the local connector should be enabled on the target server. Once the connector is enabled, a com.ibm.ws.jmx.local.address file will be created in the ${server.output.dir}/logs/state folder. The eG agent uses this file to connect to the target server and collect the required metrics from it. Therefore, specify the exact path to this file in the Service URL text box. For example, in case of Windows environments, the Service URL Path can be C:\wlp\usr\servers\server1\logs\state and in case of Linux environments, the Service URL Path can be /opt/wlp/ur/servers/server1/logs/state.

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Application state

Indicates the current state of this web application.


The values reported by this measure and its numeric equivalents are mentioned in the table below:

Measure value Numeric Value
Running 0
Stopped 1
Installed 2


By default, this measure reports the Measure Values listed in the table above to indicate the current state of this web application. The graph of this measure however, represents the status of a server using the numeric equivalents only - 0 to 2.
