Tuxedo Services Test

An application server is a software process that stores Tuxedo services. A service is an application routine that a client can request. The non-availability of a service to clients will result in the inaccessibility of the corresponding application as well. Using this test, you can continuously track the state of each service stored by the application server and receive proactive alerts of potential service failures; this way, you can quickly isolate unavailable applications. The test also monitors the request load on each service, points you to the popular applications, and thus enables you to assess the impact of their failure.

Target of the test : A Tuxedo Domain Server

Agent deploying the test : An internal agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for every group_name:program_name:service_name associated with the each server stored by the application servers on the Tuxedo Domain server being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test period

How often should the test be executed


The host for which the test is to be configured.


The port at which the specified host listens. The default port is 12345.


Specify the full path to the installation directory of the Tuxedo Domain server. For example, while monitoring a Tuxedo server on Windows, your TuxDir can be: E:\oraclehome\tuxedo11gR1


Specify the full path to the application directory of the Tuxedo Domain server. For example, while monitoring a Tuxedo server on Windows, your appdir can be: E:\oraclehome\tuxedo11gR1\samples\atmi\simpapp


Each BEA Tuxedo domain is controlled by a configuration file in which installation-dependent parameters are defined. The binary version of this configuration file is called TuxConfig. The TUXCONFIG file may be given any name; the actual name is the device or system filename specified in the TUXCONFIG environment variable. Specify the name of the TuxConfig file here. For example, while monitoring a Tuxedo server on Windows, your TuxConfig can be:E:\oraclehome\tuxedo11gR1\samples\atmi\simpapp\tuxconfig

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Service status

Indicates the current state of this service.


This measure reports the value Available if the service is up and running. The numeric value that corresponds to this measure value is 100.


By default, this measure reports the Measure Value mentioned above to indicate the current state of a server . The graph of this measure however, represents the same using the numeric equivalent only.

Requests handled

Indicates the number of requests handled by this service during the last measurement period.


A very high value could indicate that the service is overloaded with requests. You can compare the value of this measure across services to know which services have the maximum number of requests; this way, you can find out which applications are most popular.
