IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics, Version 7.1.0.1

Agent for J2EE

The ITCAM Agent for J2EE component provides monitoring, diagnostics, and server management for servers running any supported J2EE application server software, including IBM WebSphere Community Edition, or J2SE programs. This agent supports Windows, Linux, and UNIX systems.

The following application servers are supported:

Also, stand-alone J2SE programs can be monitored.

For the exact versions of the application servers supported by the ITCAM for Application Diagnostics J2EE Agent component, see IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Application Diagnostics: Prerequisites.


data collector

The data collector runs on every monitored host, and is configured for each instance of the application server.

The data collector collects monitoring and diagnostics information from the application server using the following methods:

The data collector sends the information to the monitoring agent. It can also be configured to send it to the Managing Server.


Monitoring Agent

The Monitoring Agent runs on every monitored host.

The Monitoring Agent collects information from the data collector, processes the information, and aggregates it for presentation to the user. It also parses application server logs. For some application servers, the monitoring agent uses JMX to retrieve performance information; with other application servers, the monitoring agent relies on the data collector for this information.

The Monitoring Agent sends monitoring information to the Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server. It also receives Take Action commands from the Tivoli Enterprise Monitoring Server. When these commands involve server management actions (for example, starting, stopping, or restarting the application server), the monitoring agent performs these actions.
