Configure Profiles statistics 

Profiles collects usage statistics and writes them to a log file. These settings are used to configure log file name and location.


Before you begin

To edit configuration files, use the IBM WAS wsadmin client. See Starting the wsadmin client for information about how to start the wsadmin command-line tool.


About this task

Usage statistics are stored in memory and saved to the file system during Profiles shutdown. The statistics are saved to the location configured in the statistics.filePath and statistics.fileName files. The statistics logged depend on the Profiles capabilities that are enabled. For example, if you disable the full report-to chain cache, you do not see statistics listed for that capability.


Procedure

  1. From the dmgr host:

      cd $DMGR_PROFILE/bin
      ./wsadmin.sh -jython
      execfile("profilesAdmin.py")

      If prompted to specify a service to connect to, type 1 to pick the first node in the list. Most commands can run on any node. If the command writes or reads information to or from a file using a local file path, pick the node where the file is stored.

  2. Check out the Profiles configuration files:

      ProfilesConfigService.checkOutConfig("<working_directory>", "<cell_name>")where:

      • <working_directory> is the temporary working directory to which the configuration XML and XSD files are copied and are stored while you make changes to them. Use forward slashes (/) to separate directories in the file path, even if you are using the Microsoft Windows operating system.

          Note: AIX and Linux only: The directory must grant write permissions or the command does not complete successfully.

      • <cell_name> is the name of the WAS cell hosting the Profiles application. This argument is required. It is also case-sensitive, so type it with care. If you do not know the cell name, you can determine it by typing the following command in the wsadmin command processor: print AdminControl.getCell()

      For example:

      • AIX or Linux:

          ProfilesConfigService.checkOutConfig("/opt/prof/temp","foo01Cell01")

      • Microsoft Windows:

          ProfilesConfigService.checkOutConfig("c:/prof/temp","foo01Cell01")

  • To configure statistics for Profiles, use the following command:

  • After making changes, check the configuration files back in, and do so during the same wsadmin session in which you checked them out for the changes to take effect. See Apply property changes in Profiles for information about how to save and apply your changes.
