5.2 Management Pack for Non-Oracle Middleware

This pack improves the availability and performance of Java applications with low overhead deployed on Non-Oracle Middleware (such as, IBM WebSphere Application Server, JBoss Application Server, and Apache Tomcat), as well as providing in-depth diagnostics.

The Management Pack for Non-Oracle Middleware includes the following components:

  • Enterprise Manager system monitoring functionality for IBM WebSphere Application Servers, Microsoft Internet Information Services, JBoss Application Servers, and Apache Tomcat.

  • Application Dependency and Performance, which can model Java Enterprise Edition applications based on the metadata present and gather metrics on standard Java Enterprise Edition components. The high-level metrics are organized based on their URI mappings, and the lower-level metrics are organized based on their method-level call graph.

  • Business Transaction Management features only for non-Oracle platforms which can be proxied through the limited use license of Oracle Service Bus.

  • JVM Diagnostics, which is applicable for Application Servers and standalone Java applications running on supported JVMs. This diagnoses the root cause of Java application performance problems in Java applications with very low performance overhead. See the following My Oracle Support site for the latest information about supporting JVMs and platforms:

    https://support.oracle.com/CSP/main/article?cmd=show&type=NOT&id=1265738.1&blackframe=1
    
  • Java Mission Control (JMC), which is applicable for Application Servers and standalone Java applications.

  • Configuration Management: track inventory, configuration drift and detailed configuration search.
