The WebLogic Container Layer

The tests mapped to this layer measure the health of the WebLogic Container. In the process, the layer reveals:

  • Processing bottlenecks in the WebLogic server;
  • Excessive usage of threads by the execute queues/work managers on the WebLogic server;
  • Work managers that are slow in processing requests;
  • The availability and responsiveness of the Web server component of WebLogic;
  • Security violations on the WebLogic server and the number of users who were locked out as a result;
  • The transaction load on the WebLogic server and how well the server handles the load;
  • Whether the JMS queues and topics on the WebLogic server have been sized right to handle the load on them.
