F9i Processes Test

This test reports the memory and CPU usage of the Oracle Forms 9i server processes.

Target of the test : An Oracle Forms Server

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for every Oracle Forms server monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter 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 to.


The path to the install directory of the Oracle Forms 9i server. Typically, this will be the <ORAHOMEDIR>/Forms90/.


The value, "ifweb90.exe", is displayed here. This is the Forms server runtime executable.


The install directory of the Oracle 9i server. This specification becomes more important when more than one Oracle 9i AS installation exists on a host. 


For Oracle 9i Forms monitoring, eG requires tracing to be enabled for the server. The trace files corresponding to completed sessions are automatically cleaned by the eG agent. The frequency with which these files are to be cleared from the server is to be specified in the TrcCleanupTime textbox. The default value displayed in the TrcCleanupTime text box is 30 minutes. 

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Number of processes running

Indicates the number of Forms processes currently running.


This value indicates if too many or too few instances corresponding to the specified process are executing on the host.

CPU usage

Indicates the percentage of CPU time utilized by the Forms processes.


A very high value could indicate that the specified process is consuming excessive CPU resources.

Memory usage

Indicates the percentage of memory utilized by the Forms processes.
