The BOBI Web Access Layer

The HTTP test mapped to this layer emulates an HTTP access to the BI launch pad, and reports the availability and responsiveness of the launch pad to HTTP requests. BI launch pad (formerly InfoView) is a web-based interface that end users access to view, schedule, and keep track of published business intelligence (BI) reports. Since the HTTP test has already been discussed in the Monitoring Web Servers document, this document does not talk about that test again.

In addition to the http test, the layer also monitors the health and performance of the Web Application Container Server and reports anomalies (if any). Log files generated by those server types that are responsible for data transfer and communication are also monitored by this layer, and errors in server performance are instantly captured.
