8 Using Fusion Middleware Control to Monitor Content Server

This chapter describes how to use Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control to monitor Content Server logs, performance information, and MBean information.

This chapter includes the following topics:

8.1 Using Fusion Middleware Control to Manage Log Information

You can view log messages and manage the log configuration for the Content Server instance using the Fusion Middleware Control interface.

8.1.1 Using Fusion Middleware Control to View Log Information

  1. In the navigation tree, expand the appropriate domain name (for example, Farm_base_domain).

  2. Expand WebCenter, then Content, then Content Server.

  3. Select the Content Server instance name (for example, Oracle WebCenter Content - Content Server (UCM_server1)).

  4. On the Content Server home page, from the Content Server menu choose Logs, then View Log Messages.

    The Log Messages page contains information about the contents of all available log files. You can use this page to:

    • Search for log messages logged during the past "n" hours.

    • Search for log messages that were logged between two time intervals.

    • Filter log messages based on message type.

8.1.2 Using Fusion Middleware Control to Modify Log Information

  1. In the navigation tree, expand the appropriate domain name (for example, Farm_base_domain).

  2. Expand WebCenter, then Content, then Content Server.

  3. Select the Content Server instance name (for example, Oracle WebCenter Content - Content Server (UCM_server1)).

  4. On the Content Server home page, from the Content Server menu choose Logs, then Log Configuration.

  5. Use the Log Configuration page to configure basic and advanced log configuration settings for log levels and log files. You can:

    • Change log levels of persistent loggers (loggers defined in the logging configuration file).

    • Change log levels of run-time loggers.

    • Specify loggers that are currently neither persistent nor run time.

    • Specify the log file configuration parameters such as the log file path and log rotation policies.

    • Create a new log file configuration.

    • Create a new log file configuration using an existing log file configuration.

    • View the log file configuration parameters.

    • Associate one or more loggers with a log file configuration.

Fore more details, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console Online Help.

Note:

For information about logging for IBM WebSphere, see "Configuring Oracle Fusion Middleware Logging on IBM WebSphere" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Third-Party Application Server Guide.

8.2 Using Fusion Middleware Control to View Performance Information

You can monitor performance information for the Content Server instance from Fusion Middleware Control. Information includes a graphic of metrics, a summary of the most recent metric values, and a listing of recent service requests.

To view performance information:

  1. Log in to Fusion Middleware Control.

  2. In the navigation tree, expand the appropriate domain name (for example, Farm_base_domain).

  3. Expand WebCenter, then Content, then Content Server.

  4. Select the Content Server instance name (for example, Oracle WebCenter Content - Content Server (UCM_server1)).

  5. On the Content Server home page, from the Content Server menu choose Monitoring, then Performance Summary.

    The Performance Summary page displays information in a graphic format.

  6. Click Show Metric Palette to see all the metrics that can be viewed in the chart. The Metric Palette lists available options for metrics to display in graphs.

    Click Hide Metric Palette to collapse the Metric Palette and provide more space to view the metric chart.

    To view metrics in a table format, select Table View.

  7. With the Metric Palette expanded, select the check box for each metric you want to display. Content Server metrics are described in Table 8-1.

    Table 8-1 Content Server Metrics

    Element Description

    Active Threads

    The number of active threads in the Content Server instance.

    Active Database Connections

    The number of active database connections made by the Content Server instance.

    Search Queries Cached

    The number of search queries cached (rows).

    Hit to Miss Ratio

    The hit to miss ratio for the number of search queries performed.

    Documents in GenWWW State

    The number of documents in a GenWWW state waiting for Inbound Refinery.

    Documents Waiting to be Indexed in Done State

    The number of documents in a Done state waiting to be indexed.

    Average Requests Per Sec

    The average number of Services requested per second.

8.3 Using Fusion Middleware Control to View MBean Information

You can use the MBean browser to view MBean attribute information about the Content Server instance.

To view MBean information:

  1. In the navigation tree, expand the appropriate domain name (for example, Farm_base_domain).

  2. Expand WebCenter, then Content, then Content Server.

  3. Select the Content Server instance name (for example, Oracle WebCenter Content - Content Server (UCM_server1)).

  4. On the Content Server home page, from the Content Server menu choose System MBean Browser.

    The System MBean Browser page displays the navigation pane with the Content Server name highlighted and the configuration MBean application deployment information for the Content Server instance.

  5. On the Attributes tab, you can view individual attribute names, descriptions, type of access, and values. If you change an attribute value, click Apply.

  6. On the Operations tab, you can view and invoke individual MBean operations.

    • To view details, select an MBean.

    • To apply an MBean operation, select Invoke.

    • To reset an operation to its previous setting, click Revert.

    • To go back to the Operations tab, click Return.
