Add Oracle WebLogic Server sources

To capture resource monitoring data from Oracle WebLogic Server, configure the data source.

To capture resource monitoring data from Oracle WebLogic Server, specify the path to the client files:

Specify the path to the client files on the Oracle WebLogic Client Preferences page. The Oracle WebLogic client files are provided with Oracle WebLogic, not with Rational Performance Tester, so copy the client files from the server to a folder on the workbench computer. The versions of the client files must match the version of Oracle WebLogic Server running on the server under test. By default, for Oracle WebLogic Server 10g Release 3 (10.3), the client files are installed in the c:\bea\wlserver_10.3\server\lib\ folder. To configure the Oracle WebLogic Server data source:

  1. On the Location page, specify the connection and authentication information for the computer that runs the Administration Server instance of Oracle WebLogic Server for the domain. If you need to change the port used to communicate with the Administration Server for the domain, change the information in Connection. Typically, WebLogic system administrator specifies this information. An Oracle WebLogic domain consists of one or more Oracle WebLogic Server instances. One server is the Administration Server. collect resource monitoring from an Oracle WebLogic domain that consisting of multiple servers, the specified host must be the Administration Server. The Administration Server is also known as the domain controller.

  2. If administrative security is enabled on the Administration Server, select Administrative security enabled.

    1. Type the user ID and password for Oracle WebLogic Server in Authentication.

    2. Select Save Password to save password locally. If you do not save password, you might be prompted for it (depending on the host system configuration) when you edit the configured location or when you run test schedules that use the location.

  3. On the Resource page, select the type of data to capture. The tree view shows the appservers that the Administration Server manages and their counter groups and counters. Be selective; monitoring all possible resource data requires substantial amounts of memory. Clear the Show only selected counters check box to see all available counters. Hold mouse pointer over a counter to see details about what that counter measures.

  4. Configure the options on the Options page.

    1. In Polling Interval specify in seconds the interval for collecting resource data.

      For example, if you accept the default of 5 seconds, counter information is collected at 5-second intervals from the specified host during the schedule run.

    2. In Timeout Interval specify in seconds the time to wait for a response. If the resource monitoring host does not respond within this amount of time during a schedule run, an error is logged.
