The following sections describe the contents and audience for this guide— Using the WebLogic Diagnostic Framework Console Extension for Oracle WebLogic Server:
The WebLogic Diagnostic Framework (WLDF) Console Extension is a part of the WebLogic Diagnostic Framework that provides views and tools for graphically presenting diagnostic data about servers and applications running on them. The underlying functionality for generating, retrieving, and persisting diagnostic data is provided by the WLDF framework, and the WLDF Console Extension provides additional tools for presenting that data in tables, charts, and graphs.

The WLDF Console Extension is included with WebLogic Server, but you must install it manually. See Installing and Displaying the WLDF Console Extension.
