Monitoring IGEL UMS Node

The eG Enterprise facilitates 24x7 monitoring of the IGEL UMS Node and report metrics related to the JVM of the target IGEL UMS.

Figure 1 : Layer model of IGEL UMS Node

Each layer of Figure 1 above is mapped to a variety of tests that execute on the IGEL UMS Node server and collect performance statistics that reveal the following:

  • Is the UMS application configured with adequate Java heap space?

  • Are Any threads in the JVM blocking others or taking excessive CPU?

  • Are the key UMS processes operational?

  • Are the SSL certificates configured on UMS working and are they nearing expiry?

The tests mapped to the Operating System, TCP, Application Processes and Windows Services layers have been elaborately discussed in Monitoring Unix and Windows Servers document, the tests mapped to the Network Layer have been elaborately discussed in Monitoring Cisco Router document, the tests mapped to the JVM layer have been elaborately discussed in Monitoring Java Applications document and the tests mapped to the Web Server layer are discussed in Monitoring Apache Web Servers document.
