Managing 100 plus standalone and cluster Oracle FMW instances comprising SOA Suite, Oracle Service Bus, ADF, and WebLogic spread over 200 plus servers can be an excruciating affair for any team
At Emerson Electric Co our team of eight provides hosting and administration services for the Oracle Fusion Middleware platform to our business units and divisions. Our round-the-clock services comprise installation, performance tuning, troubleshooting, and maintenance of enterprise-grade highly available FMW instances. We also provide 24 * 7 administration-related operational support to our middleware customers who are spread across multiple time zones and geographies around the world.
Given the large footprint and technical complexities, guaranteeing close to 100% uptime for our FMW platforms calls for a dependable, real-time, and state-of-the-art monitoring solution. This is where we put our trust in WLSDM and were surprised by what this great native WebLogic monitoring solution had to offer!
WLSDM is a WebLogic console extension that enables monitoring for WebLogic MBean metrics. It is very easy to create alarms and notifications by using the WLSDM metric browser. WLSDM can store any WebLogic metric values historically and can generate graphical reports. To begin with, the WLSDM installer size amounts to a few MBs and can be downloaded in a few minutes. The super-quick installation process is as easy as placing the installation file on a specific location on your WebLogic server, configuring a few additional startup properties for the WebLogic server, and restarting it. The upgrades are hassle-free and quick as well (a matter of minutes). The best feature I liked about this tool is that it needs no separate hardware/software to run on hence saving on hardware/licensing costs. The tool runs on your existing WebLogic hardware and uses the derby database, a free file-based database and is a part of the WebLogic install.
