SNMP Gauge Monitors: General
Configuration Options Related Tasks Related Topics
Use this page to configure a gauge monitor, which periodically checks the value of an integer or floating-point attribute and generates a notification if the value equals or exceeds a threshold.
Name Description Name
The name of this gauge monitor.
Each monitor within a domain must have a unique name.
The name displays in the Administration Console, and if you use WebLogic Server command-line utilities or APIs, you use this name to identify the gauge monitor.
After you have created a gauge monitor, you cannot change its name. Instead, clone the gauge monitor and provide a new name for the clone.
Monitored MBean Type
The MBean type that defines the attribute you want to monitor. Do not include the
MBeansuffix. For example,
Monitored MBean Name
The name of the MBean instance that you want to monitor. If you leave the name undefined, WebLogic Server monitors all instances of the MBean type that you specify in Monitored MBean Type.
If you target SNMP agents to individual Managed Servers, make sure that the MBean instance you specify is active on the Managed Servers you have targeted. For example, if you specify
MServer1as the name of a ServerRuntimeMBean instance, this monitor will only function if you target an SNMP agent either to the Administration Server or to a Managed Server named
Do not enter the full JMX object name of the MBean instance. Instead, enter only the value of the object name's
Name=namename-value pair. To create unique MBean object names, WebLogic Server encodes several name-value pairs into each object name. One of these pairs is
Name=name. For example:
In the previous example, specify
MedRecServeras the name of the MBean instance.
User Entered MBean Name
The short name of an MBean instance. Requires you to select
User Entered MBean Namein the Monitored MBean Name list.
Enter a name in this field if you want to monitor an MBean instance that is not currently active.
You provide the short name for an MBean when you create the associated resource.
Monitored Attribute Name
The name of an MBean attribute to monitor. This attribute must be in the WebLogic Server MIB.
The frequency (in seconds) that WebLogic Server checks the attribute value.
The high threshold at which a notification should be generated. A notification is generated the first time the monitored value is equal to or greater than this value.
Subsequent crossings of the high threshold value do not cause additional notifications unless the attribute value becomes equal to or less than the low threshold value.
The low threshold at which a notification should be generated. A notification is generated the first time the monitored value is less than or equal to this value.
Subsequent crossings of the low threshold value do not cause additional notifications unless the attribute value becomes equal to or greater than the high threshold value.
