8 Forms

This chapter describes Oracle Forms metrics.

Forms Resource Usage

This metric measures the resources consumed by all the Forms sessions.

CPU Usage (%)

This metric specifies the percentage CPU usage of all the Forms sessions.

Metric Summary

The following table shows how often the metric's value is collected and compared against the default thresholds. The 'Consecutive Number of Occurrences Preceding Notification' column indicates the consecutive number of times the comparison against thresholds should hold TRUE before an alert is generated.

Target Version Evaluation and Collection Frequency Upload Frequency Operator Default Warning Threshold Default Critical Threshold Consecutive Number of Occurrences Preceding Notification Alert Text
All Versions Every 60 Hours After Every Sample >= 80 90 2 cpu.component is %value% and has crossed warning (%warning_threshold%) or critical (%critical_threshold%) threshold.

User Action

Navigate to the host Home page in the Fusion Middleware Control and review the top processes to see if you can identify which processes are consuming the most CPU. Or, navigate to the host Performance page in the Fusion Middleware Control and view the processes that are consuming the most CPU and take appropriate action.

Target Version Collection Frequency
All Versions Every 60 Hours

Status

This metric shows the status of the Forms Application 'formsapp' running inside WebLogic Server WLS_FORMS. By default, this metric has a critical threshold of 0 indicating that the Forms Servlet is unreachable and therefore Forms instance is not accessible. A critical alert is generated when the metric value reaches the critical threshold value once. It is recommended that this threshold is set at the default value.

The 'Consecutive Number of Occurrences Preceding Notification' column indicates the consecutive number of times the comparison against thresholds should hold TRUE before an alert is generated.

Target Version Evaluation and Collection Frequency Upload Frequency Operator Default Warning Threshold Default Critical Threshold Consecutive Number of Occurrences Preceding Notification Alert Text
All Versions Every 60 Hours After Every Sample = Not Defined 0 1 The Forms instance is not accessible.

The value of this metric is obtained by measuring the availability of the Forms application.

The current value of this metric can also be seen from the Deployments table on the Forms Home Page.

Response Time (millisec)

This metric measures the average time per task taken by the servlet to serve requests. By default, this metric has a warning threshold of 500 millisec and critical threshold of 1000 millisec indicating that the Forms Listener Response time is unacceptable. A critical alert is generated when the metric value reaches the critical threshold value once. It is recommended that this threshold is left at the default value

Multiple Thresholds

For this metric you can set different warning and critical threshold values for each unique combination of "Application Deployment Name" and "Server Name" objects.

If warning or critical threshold values are currently set for any unique combination of "Application Deployment Name" and "Server Name" objects, those thresholds can be viewed on the Metric Detail page for this metric.

To specify or change warning or critical threshold values for each unique combination of "Application Deployment Name" and "Server Name" objects, use the Edit Thresholds page. See Editing Thresholds for information on accessing the Edit Thresholds page.
