Monitoring the Oracle iPlanet Web Server

eG Enterprise provides a 100%, web-based Oracle iPlanet Server monitoring model that scans the web server bottom-up – from the operating system to the virtual servers to the server instances to the web applications deployed on the server -  so that potential server overloads/slowdowns, errors encountered in real-time by the server, etc., can be quickly captured and proactively reported to administrators.

Each layer of the monitoring model is mapped to tests that report a wide variety of metrics related to the web server. These metrics provide accurate answers to the following performance queries:
