About Oracle TSAM Plus
Oracle Tuxedo System and Applications Monitor Plus 12c Release 2 (12.2.2) provides comprehensive monitoring and reporting for the Oracle Tuxedo system and applications. It includes three components: Oracle TSAM Plus Agent, Oracle TSAM Plus Manager, and Enterprise Manager for Oracle Tuxedo.
Oracle TSAM Plus 12.2.2 new features are:
Tuxedo-as-a-Service for private clouds: Based on Oracle Enterprise Manager, this feature allows one to create templates for Tuxedo system and applications. The service template then can be instantiated on one or more nodes from a pool of resources. This solution enables customers to have a unified private middleware Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution across many different Oracle products, such as WebLogic Server, Database, SOA Suite, etc. This feature includes the following main functions:
For more information, see Setting Up Oracle Tuxedo as a Cloud Service.
Application Introspection: Provides both command line and console modes to introspect the existing applications domain(s) and package those for deployment in another environment including private or public clouds. This feature makes it extremely easy to move Tuxedo applications from one environment to another. For more information, see Introspecting an Existing Domain.
Application payload collection from Tuxedo transactions and service executions: With this feature, one can define payload collection and filtering policies, store the collected payload in one of the several ways (Oracle Database, Hadoop file system, or local files), and export the payload in plain text or XML format using a series of APIs and tools for further aggregation and analysis. For more information, see User Payload Collection.
Test Load Generator: A Tuxedo applications load test tool that facilitates effective and efficient load testing. This feature works in conjunction with the payload collection feature to capture the call path and payload metrics coming from a domain gateway, Web service client or application server. One can create replay definition from call paths and execute the replay based on policies for standard and stress test modes. For more information, see Using Test Load Generator.
In addition, rolling patch 002 includes following new features and enhancements:
A new management tool tsamadmin is provided to:
Add the LMS configurations in the UBBCONFIG file automatically
