SNMP Attribute Changes: Configuration
Configuration Options Related Tasks Related Topics
Use this page to configure an attribute change, which generates a notification immediately after an attribute in a configuration MBean is changed in any way.
Name Description Name
The name of this attribute change.
Each attribute change within a domain must have a unique name.
The name displays in the Administration Console, and if you use WebLogic Server command-line utilities or APIs, you use this name to identify the attribute change monitor.
After you create an attribute change, you cannot change its name. Instead, delete it and create a new one.
Monitored MBean Type
The MBean type that defines the attribute you want to monitor. Do not include the
MBeansuffix. For example, specify
Serverto monitor a ServerMBean.
WebLogic Server does not support using Attribute Change notifications to monitor run-time attributes. Runtime MBeans always include the word
Runtimein their names. For example, the
ServerRuntimeMBean provides access to runtime attributes while the
ServerMBean provides access to configuration attributes. To monitor changes in an MBean that includes
Runtimein its name, use a String Monitor, Gauge Monitor, or Counter Monitor.
Monitored MBean Name
The name of the MBean instance that you want to monitor. If you leave the name undefined, WebLogic Server monitors all instances of the MBean type that you specify in Monitored MBean Type.
Do not enter the full JMX object name of the MBean instance. Instead, enter only the value that you provided when you created the instance. To create unique MBean object names, WebLogic Server encodes several name-value pairs into each object name. One of these pairs is
Name=name, and this is the value that you enter for MBean Name. For example:
In the previous example, specify
MedRecServeras the name of the MBean instance.
User Entered MBean Name
The short name of an MBean instance. Requires you to select
User Entered MBean Namein the Monitored MBean Name list.
Enter a name in this field if you want to monitor an MBean instance that is not currently active.
You provide the short name for an MBean when you create the associated resource.
Monitored Attribute Name
The name of the attribute that you want to monitor. This attribute must be in the WebLogic Server MIB.
