Why to Monitor Oracle HTTP Server 12c

Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) is a web server based on the Apache HTTP Server, created by the Oracle Technology Network.

An HTTP server waits for the incoming client requests (sent by user agents like browsers, web crawlers, etc.) and for each request it answers by replying with requested information, including the sending of the requested web resource, or with an HTTP error message. The main job of a web server is to display website content through storing, processing and delivering webpages to users.

The Oracle HTTP Server is a central and important part of most Oracle Application Server sites. Oracle HTTP Server handles nearly every request for dynamic data and many static data requests as well. By monitoring Oracle HTTP Server performance you can identify and fix Oracle Application Server performance issues.

eG Enterprise helps you monitor and visualize performance metrics in the context of your web services that run on Oracle HTTP servers. It also keeps an eye on Oracle processes, CPU, and memory consumption. Because Oracle HTTP Server is used at least twice during every web transaction, we must be able to identify the components of Oracle HTTP Server processing and find a way to track each component process. eG Enterprise gives you that privilege to monitor the Oracle HTTP Server and report on performance metrics.
