Guide to this Document

The Oracle Fusion Middleware Tuning Performance guide contains the following topics:

  • Top Performance Areas describes top tuning areas for Oracle Fusion Middleware and serves as a Quick Start for tuning applications.

  • Performance Planning describes the performance planning methodology and tuning concepts for Oracle Fusion Middleware.

  • Monitoring describes how to monitor Oracle Fusion Middleware and its components to obtain performance data that can assist you in tuning the system and debugging applications with performance problems.

  • Using the Oracle Dynamic Monitoring Service provides an overview and features available in the Oracle Dynamic Monitoring Service (DMS).

  • Tuning Oracle HTTP Server discusses the techniques for optimizing the Oracle HTTP Server performance and the web server component for Oracle Fusion Middleware. It provides a listener for Oracle WebLogic Server and the framework for hosting static pages, dynamic pages, and applications over the web.

  • Tuning Oracle Metadata Service provides tuning tips for Oracle Metadata Service (MDS). MDS is used by the Oracle Application Development Framework to manage metadata.

  • Tuning Oracle Fusion Middleware Security describes tuning Oracle Platform Security for Java for optimal performance. Oracle Platform Security for Java is the Oracle Fusion Middleware security implementation for Java features such as Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS) and Java EE security.

  • Tuning Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) provides basic guidelines on how to maximize the performance and scalability of the ADF stack in applications. Oracle ADF is an end-to-end application framework that builds on Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) standards and open-source technologies to simplify and accelerate implementing service-oriented applications.

  • Tuning Oracle TopLink provides some of the available performance options for Java Persistence API (JPA) entity architecture. Oracle TopLink includes EclipseLink as the JPA implementation.

  • Oracle Internet Directory Performance Tuning provides guidelines for tuning and sizing an Oracle Internet Directory installation.

  • Oracle Access Management Performance Tuning provides guidelines for tuning and sizing the services that make up an Oracle Access Management.

  • Oracle Identity Governance Performance Tuning provides guidelines for tuning and sizing specific to Oracle Identity Governance.

  • Tuning the SOA Infrastructure describes the common SOA infrastructure tuning parameters to configure Oracle Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) Suite components to improve performance. Oracle SOA Suite enables services to be created, managed, and orchestrated into SOA composite applications. Composites enable you to easily assemble multiple technology components into one SOA composite application.

  • Tuning Oracle BPEL Process Manager provides several BPEL property settings that you can configure to optimize performance at the process, domain, and application server levels.

  • Tuning Oracle Mediator describes how to tune Oracle Mediator, a service engine within the Oracle SOA Service Infrastructure, for optimal performance. The Mediator service engine runs with the SOA Service Infrastructure Java EE application.

  • Tuning Oracle Managed File Transfer describes how to tune Oracle Managed File Transfer, a new product in 12c (12.2.1). Oracle Managed File Transfer (MFT) is a high performance, standards-based, end-to-end managed file gateway.

  • Tuning Oracle Business Rules describes the technology that enables automation of business rules; it also discusses the extraction of business rules from procedural logic such as Java code or BPEL processes.

  • Tuning Oracle Business Process Management describes how to tune Oracle Business Process Management (BPM), which provides a seamless integration of all stages of the application development life cycle from design-time and implementation to runtime and application management.

  • Tuning Oracle Human Workflow describes how to tune Oracle Human Workflow for optimal performance. Oracle Human Workflow is a service engine running in Oracle SOA Service Infrastructure that allows the execution of interactive human driven processes. The Human Workflow service consists of a number of services that handle various aspects of human interaction with a business process.

  • Tuning Oracle Business Activity Monitoring describes how to tune the Oracle Business Activity Monitoring dashboard application for optimal performance. Oracle Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) provides tools for monitoring business services and processes in the enterprise.

  • Tuning Oracle Service Bus describes how to tune the Oracle Service Bus, which provides connectivity, routing, mediation, management and also some process orchestration capabilities. It is part of a larger system where it plays the role of an intermediary between two or more applications (servers).

  • Tuning Oracle Enterprise Scheduler Service describes how to tune the Oracle Enterprise Scheduler Service, which enables scheduling and running jobs within a particular time frame, or workshift, using rules to create work assignments.

  • Tuning Oracle Business Intelligence Performance describes how to tune Oracle Business Performance, which provides a full range of business intelligence capabilities that collects up-to-date data from the organization, presents the data in easy-to-understand formats (such as tables and graphs), and delivers the data quickly to the members of the organization.

  • Tuning Oracle WebCenter Portal describes how to tune Oracle WebCenter Portal, which is an integrated suite of products used to create social applications, enterprise portals, communities, composite applications, and internet or intranet websites on a standards-based, service-oriented architecture (SOA).
