SOA Suite 12c monitoring with EM 12c Cloud Control by Michel Schildmeijer


clip_image002Good monitoring is knowing how your systems and application are doing at past, present and future time. There are many  monitoring tools & solutions at the market, all with pro’s and cons. Building monitoring takes time and effort but in the end gives you the benefit of less disturbance and more guarantee of business continuity.

At the customers I work for, I often implemented Oracle’s Enterprise manager 12c Cloud Control to build a monitoring framework. In this blog I will tell about what needs to be done to build such a framework.

Pre Requirements

Before start building a solution, make sure you have:

  • The proper monitoring pack licenses; for SOA Suite that will be:
    • The WebLogic Diagnostics & Monitoring Pack
    • The SOA Suite Diagnostics & Montitoring Pack
  • Agents installed on every physical (or virtual ) host where WebLogic / SOA is running

Building Steps

Deploying Agents to Targets

If not already done so, agents need to be deployed to the hostst were middleware is running. I will not discuss this any further because this is more Enterprise Manager generic.

Discover Middleware Targets

Discovering Middleware Targets is just as it is as with other Targets. Read the complete article here.
