Overview

The following predefined situations run automatically from the WebSphere Agent and support the following applications servers unless stated otherwise.

To start, stop or edit any of these situations see Access the situations.

For information about situations that run manually see Predefined situations descriptions and formulas (that run manually).


WASAppDiscovered

Monitor WebSphere applications deployed in the application server. Issue an Informational alert when a new application is discovered. The monitoring agent checks for new applications each time it connects to the data collector or when an application is deployed when the data collector is already active.

This situation does not support Lotus Workplace server.

The Take Action command Start_Baselining, associated with the WASAppDiscovered situation, enables automatation of baselining of newly discovered applications.


WASAppHealthBad

Monitor the overall application health. Issue a Critical alert when the application health is bad.

The Take Action command Set_Application_Monitoring, associated with WASAppHealthBad situation, increases the request monitoring rate for applications generated alert. Collect more detailed performance data. Collect the precise data about each application tier health level.


WASAppHealthFair

Monitor the overall application health. Issue a warning alert when application health is fair.

The Take Action command Set_Application_Monitoring, associated with WASAppHealthFair situation, raises the request monitoring level for applications generated alert. This command enables you to collect detailed performance data that helps to pinpoint a bottleneck down to particular application tiers.


WASAppHealthGood

Monitor the overall application health. Issue an Informational alert when application health is good.

The Take Action command Set_Application_Monitoring, associated with the WASAppHealthGood situation, lowers the request monitoring level, and reduces the monitoring workload.


WASError

Monitor the error severity for a single WAS. Issue a Critical condition whenever that severity is greater than 21.


WASHighCPUPercentUsed

Monitor the percentage of the CPU being consumed. Issue a Critical condition whenever that time exceeds 80%.


WASHighGCTimePercent

Monitor the percentage of time being spent by the garage collector. Issue a Critical condition whenever that time exceeds 80%.


WASHighResponseTime

Monitor the average request response time. Issue a Critical condition whenever that time exceeds 2 seconds.


WASNotConnected

Monitor the connection between the ITCAM for WebSphere data collector running in an application server and the ITCAM Agent for WebSphere Applications monitoring agent to ensure that the monitoring agent is connected. Issue a Critical condition whenever it is not.


WASOutofHeapSpace

Monitor the heap allocation status. Issue a Critical condition whenever heap space is exhausted.

This situation is not available when monitoring non-IBM Java Virtual Machines, including machines commonly used on HP-UX and Solaris platforms.


WASAvgHeapSizeAfterGCHigh

Monitor the average heap size free percentage after garbage collection. This situation issues a Critical alert if the average heap size free percentage after garbage collection is greater than 80%.

This situation does not support Lotus Workplace server.


WASJ2CConnectionPoolUsageMaxed

Monitor the J2C pool percentage usage. Issue a Warning alert if the pool usage is greater than or equal to 100%.

This situation does not support Lotus Workplace server.


WASDBConnectionPoolUsageMaxed

Monitor the JDBC pool usage. Issue a Critical alert if the pool usage is greater than or equal to 100%.

This situation does not support Lotus Workplace server.
