10 Oracle WebLogic Managed Server Policies

This chapter provides the following information for each of the Oracle WebLogic Managed Server policies:

The Oracle WebLogic Managed Server only has configuration policies.

10.1 Configuration Policies

The configuration policies for the Oracle WebLogic Managed Server target are:

10.1.1 WebLogic Admin Port Enabled

This policy verifies whether the Oracle WebLogic Server Domain Administration Port is enabled or not. An Administration Port limits all administrative traffic between server instances in a WebLogic Server domain to a single port.

When used in conjunction with a connection filter, you can specify that a WebLogic Server instance accepts administrative requests only from a known set of machines or subnets and only on a single port.

Policy Summary

The following table lists the policy's main properties.

Severity Category Target Type Versions Affected Policy Rule EvaluationFoot 1  Automatically Enabled? Alert Message
Critical Configuration Oracle WebLogic Managed Server Oracle WebLogic Server 7.1 or later The underlying metric has a collection frequency of once every 24 hours. Yes Oracle WebLogic Server Domain doesn't have its Administration Port Enabled.

Footnote 1 The policy rule is evaluated each time its underlying DomainPolicyMetrics metric is collected.

Defaults

Parameters and Their Default Values

None

Objects Excluded by Default

None

Impact of Violation

It enables you to separate administration traffic from application traffic in your domain. The administration port accepts only secure and SSL traffic, and all connections through the port require authentication by a server administrator.

Action

Enable Domain Wide Administration Port. For more information, refer to the Oracle WebLogic documentation.

10.1.2 WebLogic Performance Pack Enabled

This policy verifies whether the Oracle WebLogic Server Performance Pack is enabled or not.

Policy Summary

The following table lists the policy's main properties.

Severity Category Target Type Versions Affected Policy Rule EvaluationFoot 1  Automatically Enabled? Alert Message
Critical Configuration Oracle WebLogic Managed Server Oracle WebLogic Server 7.1 or later The underlying metric has a collection frequency of once every 24 hours. Yes Oracle WebLogic Server doesn't have its Performance Pack Enabled.

Footnote 1 The policy rule is evaluated each time its underlying ServerPolicyMetrics metric is collected.

Defaults

Parameters and Their Default Values

None

Objects Excluded by Default

None

Impact of Violation

Benchmarks show major performance improvements in WebLogic Server when you use the performance pack for your platform. Performance packs use a platform-optimized (native) socket multiplexor to improve server performance.

Action

To use a performance pack, make sure the NativeIOEnabled attribute of the Server element is defined in your config.xml file. The default config.xml file that shipped with your distribution enables this attribute by default: NativeIOEnabled=true. For more information, refer to the Oracle WebLogic documentation.

10.1.3 WebLogic Production Mode Enabled

This policy verifies whether the Oracle WebLogic Server is running in Production Mode or not.

Policy Summary

The following table lists the policy's main properties.

Severity Category Target Type Versions Affected Policy Rule EvaluationFoot 1  Automatically Enabled? Alert Message
Critical Configuration Oracle WebLogic Managed Server Oracle WebLogic Server 7.1 or later The underlying metric has a collection frequency of once every 24 hours. Yes Oracle WebLogic Server is not running under production mode.

Footnote 1 The policy rule is evaluated each time its underlying DomainPolicyMetrics metric is collected.

Defaults

Parameters and Their Default Values

None

Objects Excluded by Default

None

Impact of Violation

WebLogic Server uses different default values for various services depending on the type of environment you specify. You can indicate whether a domain is to be used in a development environment or a production environment.

Action

Start the Oracle WebLogic servers by enabling Production Mode. For more information, refer to the Oracle WebLogic documentation.
