About the Siebel Management Framework Architecture


Siebel Management Framework is a set of management and diagnostic modules that you can install and optionally deploy in your Siebel environment. Siebel Management Framework includes the following entities:

  • Siebel Management Server
  • Siebel Management Agents
  • Siebel Diagnostic Tool (GUI utility)

Figure 12 shows the Siebel Management Framework architecture.

Figure 12. Siebel Management Framework Architecture

Figure 12 shows the following relationships within Siebel Management Framework:

  • Siebel Diagnostic Tool resides on Siebel Management Server.
  • Siebel Management Agents reside on each Siebel Server of your choice within the Siebel Enterprise.
  • A single Siebel Management Server can work with multiple Siebel Enterprises.
  • There is a one-to-many relationship between Siebel Management Server and Siebel Management Agents.
  • There is a one-to-many relationship between a Server Group and Siebel Servers.

    NOTE:  In a given Siebel Enterprise, Siebel Servers can be grouped. However, each server can belong to only one server Group.

About Installing Siebel Management Framework Entities

The Siebel Management Server and Siebel Management Agents are infrastructure components that support the Siebel Diagnostic Tool and Siebel Application Deployment Manager (ADM) features. Siebel Management Agents communicate with Siebel Management Server, by way of a JMX API (Java Management Extensions application program interface) that uses the TCP/IP protocol.

Siebel Management Server is installed on a Windows server. Siebel Management Agents are instead typically installed as part of the Siebel Server installation process, although you can install the agents at a later time using a separate installer. Siebel Diagnostic Tool, a graphical user interface that allows you to monitor, analyze, and diagnose problems in the production environment, is automatically installed when you install Siebel Management Server.

NOTE:  Using Siebel Diagnostic Tool requires that you license Oracle Application Management Pack for Siebel. For more information about the management pack, see the Enterprise Manager Licensing Guide in the Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Release 3 (10.2.0.3) documentation library. You can access this library on Oracle Technology Network.

Siebel Management Framework Resources

Before working with the entities within Siebel Management Framework (see Figure 12), it is recommended that you also familiarize yourself with additional resources for a better understanding of these entities and their functionality. Table 29 provides these resources.
