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.

Simple Introduction to using the Enterprise Manager SOA/BPM Facade API by Jaideep Ganguli

There may be times when you need to expose just a small section of what is displayed in the Enterprise Manager console for SOA/BPM (EM console).

A simple example can be where stakeholders on the systems integration or customer teams want to monitor a dashboard of statistics on how many instances of a composite have been created and how many have faulted.

DeployedCompositeStatsInEMYou can see this in the EM, as shown below
Some of these stakeholders may not have knowledge of  EM console and they just want a quick view into the statistics, without having to navigate EM.

This post describes how to use the Oracle Fusion Middleware Infrastructure Management Java API  for Oracle SOA Suite (also called the Facade API)  to build a custom ADF page to display this information. If you want a quick introduction in using the Facade API, this post is for you.
