Part VI

Monitoring Application Performance

Monitoring distributed applications requires the use of several products, each of which examines a different aspect of application performance. The chapters in this part explain how you can use these products singly and together to monitor your application. It also provides a summary of the workflow required to install, configure, and work with these products. It includes the following chapters:

The chapters in this part are meant to be read sequentially, from beginning to end. If you are familiar with any of the individual components described, Oracle still recommends that you read those subsections that describe how you navigate from one component to others.

The information in this part is not exhaustive. It is a map rather than a compendium. The bulk of material describing how monitoring components work, is found in other documents. Cross references to additional material are provided for your convenience.
