Oracle iPlanet Web Server 7.0 is a multi-process, multi-threaded, secure web server built on industry standards for medium to large enterprises.

The web server incorporates a modular architecture that integrates seamlessly with all products in the Sun Java System family of servers. In addition, Web Server supports a variety of APIs and programming technologies that enable you to do the following:

  1. Generate dynamic content in response to client requests
  2. Modify and extend the behavior of the server
  3. Modify the content that is stored in the server

It is this flexibility that makes the Oracle iPlanet server one of the most popular web servers when it comes to supporting dynamic, mission-critical web site services. Since any issue in the functioning of this web server can cause prolonged service slowdowns or can even deny users access to the service, it is imperative that the wheels of this server roll 24 x 7 so as to ensure high service uptime and to maximize the user satisfaction with the quality of the service. The need of the hour is hence a monitoring solution that can monitor the web server continuously, detect performance issues before it affects service quality, and alert administrators to these issues, so that the problem can be resolved much before users notice them. This is where eG Enterprise lends helping hand to administrators.
