Oracle TSAM Overview

The following sections provide an overview to the Oracle Tuxedo System and Application Monitor (TSAM) product:

 


Understanding Oracle TSAM

Oracle Tuxedo is widely used by enterprises that develop and use mission-critical applications. It acts as the infrastructure layer in distributed computing environments. The complexity of Oracle Tuxedo and the applications running on top of it makes performance measurement extremely complex.

Oracle TSAM provides comprehensive monitoring and reporting for Oracle Tuxedo system and applications. It includes two components: Oracle TSAM Agent and Oracle TSAM Manager.

The Oracle TSAM agent enables collection of various applications performance metrics (including call path, transactions, services, system servers). The Oracle TSAM Manager provides graphical user interface that correlates and aggregates performance metrics collected from one or more Tuxedo domains. It displays this information in interactive real time.

Why Use Oracle TSAM?

Because the Oracle Tuxedo framework and applications are widely deployed, comprehensive monitoring and reporting capability becomes increasingly critical. For example, you may want to know:

Oracle TSAM can provide this information and allows you to easily identify bottlenecks and expedite problem resolution. Oracle TSAM can also help with performance tuning and capacity planning.

Oracle TSAM also allows you to define event alerts. The Oracle TSAM Console reports an event when an alert is triggered notifying you to take proper action.
