Are you searching Google and BMC Communities for a solution, but could not find one?

 

Are you searching the BMC Support Knowledge Base and getting too many results for products you are not using?

 

Are you spending time having to unselect/select various products in the list?

 

Would you like to search the BMC Support Knowledge Base and only see results only for ITDA or a particukar KM?

 

If the answer to any of the above is YES then you need to use a pre-filtered URL to just search for that particular product.  Also these pre-filtered URLs will contain additional KAs/solutions that are not available on Google and BMC Communities.  See the following steps to use these pre-filtered URLs to find solution to the problem or question:

 

Step 1) In a web browser, log into the BMC Support Central web site (Support Central - BMC Software)

 

Note: You must log into the BMC Support Central web site prior to using the pre-filtered URLs.

 

Step 2) Select one of the desired pre-filtered URLs in the table below and enter it into the same web browser in Step 1

 

Step 3) Enter the desired text into the search field to find KAs/solutions

Have you heard? The Web Application Server KMs have been completely redesigned with performance, usability and security in mind. You spoke and we heard you!

  1. We removed all administrative commands from the Web Apps KMs. Patrol users can no longer restart or shutdown application servers, etc.
  2. You no longer need to configure the Web Apps KMs with accounts that have administrative  privileges.
  3. We simplified the configuration. The Web Apps KMs now have no more than two screens to configure.
  4. We made significant performance improvements. No more high CPU issues.
  5. Added PATROL for Apache Tomcat KM and Generic Java Server KM to the Web Application Servers suite.
  6. Streamlined integration with BPPM.

 

Introducing BMC PATROL for Apache Tomcat and Generic Application Server!

 

This is a new KM. It is actually two KMs in one!

You can load the Apache Tomcat KM (TCT.kml) or the Generic Java Server KM (GJS.kml) or both, depending on your needs.

 

What do these two KMs do?

Now that you have the WebSphere Application Server (WAS) KM configured, what do all these parameters mean? Why am I seeing some parameters and not others?

 

Server & Application Availability:

 

In the screenshot below, WebSphere is monitored with IBM WebSphere’s Performance Monitoring Infrastructure (PMI) disabled altogether. PMI is ‘0’ or None. But you can see that a lot parameters are still displayed such as NodeAgentAvailability, ServerAvailability, AplicationStatus and DMgrAvaiability.
Proxy Servers are identified so you can use them for more advanced features of BPPM such as Root Cause Analysis and Event Management.
And the WAS KM can identify Clusters as shown below.
WAS KM keeps track of how much time it takes to discover WebSphere. The ConfigurationDiscoveryTime parameter is populated with this information. And users can double-click on the DiscoveredInformation text parameter to get a report showing the entire WebSphere cell.

General Health Monitoring:

 

 

If you select General Health monitoring then you will not only see JMX based parameters such as NodeSync and ServerAvailability but also high-level general information is delivered including ServerResources, FreeMemory, PercentMemoryUsed, TotalMemory and UsedMemory parameters.
If IBM Profiler is enabled then we will automatically display all available Garbage Collection parameters.

Full Monitoring of Web Application:

 

In the screenshot below we see a URL monitor is discovered. This gives us the ability to monitor an activity and the performance of a specific URL within an application.
ApplicationStatus represents the JMX general availability of that application.
Everything is organized hierarchically per the same name of the instance; you have an archive, then the war, and inside that war you may have several servlets; each servlet may have one or many URLs, and the data is reported accordingly.
As you can see, you can have a very detailed view of each and every one of those applications.

Monitoring Level - Sample Server (PMI=All)

 

The screenshot below shows we can monitor not only an application but also the entire cell. The PMI Level is ‘4’ or All.
Here the server bpm-01.AppTargtet.v1-hou-ngp-dv01NodeBPM.0 is expanded to display all of the data categories.
The names expanded under the bpm-01.AppTargtet.v1-hou-ngp-dv01NodeBPM.0 server are the names you would see exactly as if you were viewing them from the IBM WebSphere Console. This helps users to correlate the view displayed in the PATROL Console with the view displayed in the IBM WebSphere Console.
You can see the server shows up under the cluster since that’s how it was configured on the IBM WebSphere side.
Below it you can see DMgrAvailability and ConfigurationDiscoveryTime. And below that you have
MsgReadTimeFromJavaCollector which tells you how large the message is that’s being sent from the java admin client into PATROL. And MsgSizeFromJavaCollector is how long it takes to process the data.

Monitoring Level - Node Agent (PMI=All)

 

Here is another example of monitoring a node where the PMI Level is ‘4’ or All.
