Viewing Monitor Servlet Diagnostics

You can view diagnostic information that is related to the monitor servlet by accessing the servlet using the following URLs.

URL

Description

http://<host>/monitor/<site>/?cmd=agents

Reveals additional statistics about the agents sending data to the monitor servlet.

http://<host>/monitor/<site>/?cmd=ppmiclients

Reveals additional statistics about the PPMI clients receiving data from the monitor servlet.

Note: To provide access to this interface, you must enable the PPMConsole on the Global Administration page.

See Setting Global System Options.

Monitoring Agents

Agents refers to the agents on various monitored systems that send performance data to the current monitor servlet.

The system retrieves the agent information from the monitor's cache. If an administrator has changed any agent settings and clicked Save and Notify Agents on the System Definitions page, the agent information temporarily disappears in the Agents grid. Updated agent settings appear in the Agents grid after the agent communicates with monitor servlet.

Note: You identify the monitored system, using the system ID (PeopleSoft GUID) appearing just above each grid. To identify the agents, you need to map the system GUID and agent ID with the definitions in the monitoring database.

Note: Agents appear in the grid if they have successfully registered. The appearance of an agent does not imply that data from the agent is being successfully inserted into the monitoring database.

The following information appears in the Agents grid.

ID

The agent ID that uniquely identifies an agent within a monitored system.

Last Comm

The last time the agent contacted the monitor servlet.

Filter

The current agent filter level.

Buf-Size (buffer size)

The current maximum buffer size for the agent that is specified in the system definition.

Send-Itvl (send interval)

The current agent buffering interval.

Heartbeat

The current agent heartbeat interval

Sample-Itvl (sample interval)

The current agent event sample rate.

User Trace

Indicates whether performance trace is allowed for this agent.

Sampling Rate

The current PMU sample rate.

Sampling Filter

This column is reserved for future use.

Monitoring PPMI Clients

PPMI clients refer to the PSPPMSRV server processes that interact with the monitor servlet. The Clients grid shows all known PPMI clients.

The following information appears in the Clients grid.

Group

The system's unique identifier (PeopleSoft GUID).

ID

The internal ID assigned to this PSPPMSRV.

URL

The IP address of the PSPPMSRV.

Queue Length

The number of PMUs and events not yet sent to this PSPPMSRV.

Estimated Queue Size

The estimated size in bytes of the PMUs and events not yet sent to this PSPPMSRV.

Item Processed

The number of PMUs and events sent across this PSPPMSRV connection.

Estimated Bytes Processed

The estimated size in bytes of the PMUs and events sent across this PSPPMSRV connection.

Max Size

The maximum buffer size in bytes for the PMU and event queue reached in the lifetime of this connection.

Running Avg Size (running average size)

The running average of the estimated size in bytes of the PMUs and events not yet sent to this PSPPMSRV.

Limit

The maximum buffer size in bytes for the PMU and event queue. Data is discarded when this limit is reached.
