This chapter provides an overview of the process to follow to install and configure the application performance management components provided with Enterprise Manager Grid Control. These components include:
JVM Diagnostics Manager
This component allows you to monitor Java applications and diagnose performance problems directly in your production environment.
Application Dependency and Performance
This feature analyzes Java EE and SOA applications to capture relationships among various application building blocks, enabling more efficient management of distributed applications.
This feature provides end-to-end visibility into requests and helps localize and diagnose end-user performance problems.
These components are installed and configured on an existing Enterprise Manager Grid Control installation. This means that you must have the core components of Enterprise Manager Grid Control (Oracle Management Service, Oracle Management Agents, and Oracle Management Repository) fully installed and configured before installing or configuring the performance management components.
The recommended installation and configuration processes are as follows:
Install Enterprise Manager Grid Control.
The installation process is fully documented in the Enterprise Manager Grid Control Basic Installation Guide.
Ensure that all prerequisites defined in the document have been met before beginning the installation.
