Monitor the deployment environment
Use the included monitoring console, APIs, MBeans, logs, and utilities to monitor the performance of the application environment.
- Statistics overview
Statistics in WebSphere eXtreme Scale are built on an internal statistics tree. The StatsAccessor API, Performance Monitoring Infrastructure (PMI) modules, and MBean API are built from the internal tree.
- Monitor with the web console
With the web console, you can chart current and historical statistics. This console provides some canned charts for high-level overviews, and has a custom reports page that you can use to build charts from the available statistics. Use the charting capabilities in the monitoring console of WebSphere eXtreme Scale to view the overall performance of the data grids in the environment.
- Monitor with the statistics API
The Statistics API is the direct interface to the internal statistics tree. Statistics are disabled by default, but can be enabled by setting a StatsSpec interface. A StatsSpec interface defines how WebSphere eXtreme Scale should monitor statistics.
- Monitor with the xsAdmin sample utility
With the xsadmin sample utility, you can format and display textual information about the WebSphere eXtreme Scale topology. The sample utility provides a method for parsing and discovering current deployment data, and can be used as a foundation for writing custom utilities.
- Monitor with WAS PMI
WebSphere eXtreme Scale supports Performance Monitoring Infrastructure (PMI) when running in a WAS or Extended Deployment application server. PMI collects performance data on runtime applications and provides interfaces that support external applications to monitor performance data. Use the administrative console or the wsadmin tool to access monitoring data.
- Monitor with managed beans (MBeans)
Used managed beans (MBeans) to track statistics in the environment.
- Monitor with vendor tools
WebSphere eXtreme Scale can be monitored using several popular enterprise monitoring solutions. Plug-in agents are included for IBM Tivoli Monitoring and Hyperic HQ, which monitor WebSphere eXtreme Scale using publicly accessible management beans. CA Wily Introscope uses Java™ method instrumentation to capture statistics.
- Monitor eXtreme Scale information in DB2
When the JPALoader or JPAEntityLoader is used with DB2 as the back-end database, eXtreme Scale-specific information can be passed to DB2. You can view this information by a performance monitor tool such as DB2 Performance Expert to monitor the eXtreme Scale applications that are accessing the database.
