This example illustrates the fields on the Application dashboard. You can find definitions for the fields later on this page.

Health Center Dashboard

Field or Control

Definition

Health Status (overall)

Displays the overall health of an application, which is an aggregate of statuses across all domains and servers participating in the application. Possible values are:

  • OK

  • Warn

  • Critical

The overall health status of an application is determined by PeopleTools heuristics.

Load Status (overall)

Displays the overall performance status of an application, which is an aggregate of statuses across all domains and servers participating in the application. Possible values are:

  • Idle

  • Light

  • Medium

  • Heavy

The overall load status of an application is determined by PeopleTools heuristics.

Alerts

Displays the active alerts for the application. Possible categories are:

  • Emergency

  • Urgent

  • Warning

PeopleSoft Health Center enables you to configure metric alerts. Metric alerts are associated with graphs. On each dashboard, in the header of a section associated with a graph, an Alert Setup icon is displayed, which allows you to configure metric alerts.

See Configuring Metric Alerts.

Web Servers

Displays a PIA server in the application and provides the overall health and status of the domain, which includes the following information.

  • The health of the server as reported by middleware vendor.

  • The load status of the server as reported by PeopleTools.

  • CPU utilization (in percentage) by web server.

  • The total memory (in MB) committed to Java heap.

  • The amount of heap used as a percentage.

  • The number of threads allocated from the web servers pool of execute threads.

Note: In PeopleTools 8.55, PIA deployed on WebLogic is supported; PIA deployed on Websphere is not supported.

See Viewing the Web Server Dashboard.

Application Server Domains

Displays an application server domain and provides the overall health and status of the domain, which includes the following information.

  • The health status of the domain as reported by PeopleTools.

  • The load status of the domain as reported by PeopleTools.

  • Total CPU utilization on the host machine.

  • Currently allocated total virtual memory on the host machine as a percentage.

  • The number of active server processes in the domain.

  • The number of requests currently queued across all queues in the domain.

See Viewing the Application Server Domain Dashboard.

Process Scheduler Domains

Displays a Process Scheduler domain and provides the overall health and status of the domain. The diagnostic parameters are similar to the application server domain.
