12 Monitoring the PaaS Infrastructure

This chapter describes the monitoring operations that can performed on DBaaS or MWaaS clouds. It contains the following sections:

12.1 Viewing the Middleware and Database Cloud Home Page

After the SSA_ADMINISTRATOR has completed DBaaS and MWaaS setup and one or more SSA users have submitted requests, a unified view of the DBaaS and MWaaS service types can be seen on the Middleware and Database Cloud Home page. To view the Middleware and Database Cloud Home page, from the Enterprise menu, select Cloud, then select Middleware and Database Home.

Middleware and Database Cloud Home Page

It contains the following regions:

  • General: This region contains the following:

    • PaaS Infrastructure Zone: The total number of PaaS Infrastructure zones that have been created is displayed. Click on the link to drill down to the PaaS Infrastructure Zones page.

    • Software Pools: The total number of software pools that have been defined across MWaaS and DBaaS. The software pools are applicable only to PaaS Infrastructure zones which contain the host member type. They are not applicable to OVM zone member types.

    • Oracle VM Zones: The Oracle VM Zones associated with the PaaS Infrastructure zones.

    • Hosts: The physical hosts associated with the software pools.

    • Service Templates: This total number of service templates that have been defined.

    • Requests: The total number of requests for MWaaS and DBaaS. Click on the link to drill down to the All Requests page.

  • Daily Charge for the Last 30 Days: Shows rolled up chargeback data across all service types.

  • CPU and Memory: The average CPU and memory titillations by all servers (virtual servers and physical hosts) across all zones.

  • Unallocated Hosts: The physical hosts that are not associated with any software pool are listed here. You can see the name of the host, type, and the status. Click View All Servers to drill down to the Servers page.

  • Services: This region displays the following:

    • Service Instances: The total number of instances by service type, zone, service template, status or owner. Select a option from the View drop down list to see the rollup inventory for the type. Click See Details to view the Service Instance Details page. Click on the bar graph next to a service type to drill down to the detailed view of the selected service.

    • Service Requests: The Service Requests table lists requests by request type, zone, service type, service template, status, or owner. You can choose to view all the requests or for a specific period by selecting the appropriate option from the Show drop down list. Click See Details to view the Request Details page. Click on the bar graph next to a specific request to drill down to the detailed view of the selected request.

From the Middleware and Database Cloud menu, you can do the following:

12.2 Viewing the Middleware and Database Request Dashboard Page

The SSA Administrator can use the Request Dashboard to track the status of all database and middleware requests. The SSA administrator can view the requests across all zones for all users. The requests the SSA user can view depends on his zone and his instance level privileges. You can choose to view Middleware, Databases, or All requests by clicking the appropriate radio button.

To view the Middleware and Database Request Dashboard, from the Enterprise menu, select Cloud, then select Middleware and Database Request Dashboard.

The following charts are displayed:

  • Summary: You can view a summary of all Completed Requests, Failed Requests, Successful Requests, and Partially Successful Requests.

  • Latest: You can view a list of the Latest 10 Failed Requests, Oldest 10 Running Requests, and Latest 10 Pending Requests. Click View All Requests to drill down to the All Requests page.

  • Average Request Wait Time (Zone): The average request wait time across all zones for the past 7 days.

  • Average Request Processing Time (Zone): The average request wait time across all zones for the past 7 days.

12.3 Viewing All Requests Page

The All Requests page shows a list of requests made so far. You can choose to view database requests, middleware requests, or both. To view the All Requests page, click the View All Requests link in the Latest 10 Failed Requests region in the Middleware and Database Request Dashboard page. For each request, the name of the request, date and time on which was created, the type of request, user who created the request, and the status of the request are displayed.

Click on the Name link to drill down to the Request Details page.

  • Deployment: This tab shows details of the service instance that was created. Click the Procedure or Deployed Targets link to navigate to the deployment or Job instance page that can be used to troubleshoot failed requests.

12.4 Viewing the Service Instances Page

The Service Instance page shows the list of all service instances. To view this page, from the Enterprise menu, select Cloud, then select Middleware and Database Cloud. From the Middleware and Database Service Instances.

Figure 12-5 Service Instances

Service Instances Page

For each service instance, the following details are displayed:

  • Service Instance Type: The type of request (Middleware or Database).

  • Status: The status of the target.

  • Creation Date: The date on which the service was created.

  • Expiry Date: The date on which the service will expire and no longer be available.

  • PaaS Infrastructure Zone: The PaaS Infrastructure Zone in which this service instance was created. Click on the link to drill down to the Zone Home page.
