Features

The following sections provide feature overviews for each of the multiple products associated with WebLogic Server Management Pack Enterprise Edition.

Application Performance Management

The WebLogic Server Management Pack Enterprise Edition improves the availability and performance of Java applications with low overhead, and provides in-depth diagnostics. The pack enables administrators to proactively monitor application performance and diagnose the root cause of performance problems, such as applications crashing and hanging in a production environment, which may severely impact businesses.

In addition, this pack delivers comprehensive management and modeling capabilities for pure Java EE and web service environments, as well as business transaction monitoring for applications running in Oracle WebLogic Server. By combining contextual drill-down modeling capabilities with extensive metrics that can span containers horizontally as well as the entire vertical stack for Java EE, this pack significantly reduces the cost and complexity of managing Java EE-based environments in development, testing, staging, and production environments.

You can access the application performance management features available with the WebLogic Server Management Pack Enterprise Edition through Grid Control licensed links and by installing JRockit Mission Control. Both of these components comprise the application performance management features provided by the WebLogic Server Management Pack Enterprise Edition.

Unless otherwise stated, the features listed in Table 3–1 apply to both Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle Application Server environments. In some cases, as noted in the table, the features also apply to the underlying host target types on which the middleware software has been installed.

Licensing for Service Level Management

Enterprise Manager Grid Control Service Level Management (SLM) offers a rich monitoring solution that helps IT organizations achieve high availability and performance, and optimized service levels for their business services. SLM actively monitors and reports on the availability and performance of services, including end-user business functions, Web applications, and infrastructure components. Using service tests or synthetic transactions executed from remote user locations (beacons), businesses can monitor services from the end-users' perspectives and the services' correlation to the underlying IT infrastructure. In addition, SLM assesses the business impact of any service problem or failure, and indicates whether service level goals have been met.

Enterprise Manager Grid Control Service Level Management was introduced as a standalone Service Level Management Pack with Enterprise Manager version 10g release 2. In Enterprise Manager 11g, Service Level Management is licensed as part of WebLogic Server Management Pack Enterprise Edition, as well as the following products:

  • Oracle Real User Experience Insight

  • SOA Management Pack Enterprise Edition

  • Management Pack Plus for Identity Management

A subset of functionality in the Service Level Management Pack was previously included as part of the Diagnostics Pack for Application Server license.
