WebLogic server monitoring.

Configure our WebLogic plugin to monitor the performance metrics of your Oracle WebLogic servers.

Oracle WebLogic is a Java EE application server. Install and use our WebLogic monitoring tool and get detailed insights into database activity and health..

This document details how to configure the WebLogic plugin and the monitoring metrics for providing in-depth visibility into the performance, availability, and usage stats of WebLogic servers.

WebLogic performance monitoring metrics:

Install and configure the WebLogic plugin to monitor the performance metrics of your Oracle WebLogic server. Use these key indicators to take informed troubleshooting decisions and ensure continuous functioning of your WebLogic server:

Java heap memory

The metric heap_size_current gives us the current size of Java heap memory of the WebLogic server in GB.

Server health

Gives us the health status of all the WebLogic servers currently being monitored.

How it works?

  • Log-in to your Site24x7 account. Sign up here if you don't have one
  • Download and install the latest version of Site24x7 Linux Agent
  • Install the WebLogic plugin
  • The agent will execute the WebLogic plugin and push the data to the Site24x7 server

Prerequisites:

  • Supported only from WebLogic server version 12 and above

WebLogic plugin installation:

  • Create a directory with the name "weblogic", under Site24x7 Linux Agent plugin directory - /opt/site24x7/monagent/plugins/
  • Download the file "weblogic.py" from our GitHub repository and place it under the "weblogic" directory
  • Commands to perform the above step:
  • cd /opt/site24x7/monagent/plugins/
    mkdir weblogic
    cd weblogic
    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/site24x7/plugins/master/weblogic/weblogic.py
  • Once the plugin file is downloaded, the agent will mark it up in the next data collection and you can view it in Site24x7 client

WebLogic plugin configuration:

  • Make the following changes in the apache plugin file "weblogic.py" - /opt/site24x7/monagent/plugins/weblogic/weblogic.py
  • Replace the shebang character "#!" with the appropriate path for Python 3 in your system
  • Eg : #!/usr/local/bin/python3
  • Change the values of WEBLOGIC_HOST, WEBLOGIC_PORT, WEBLOGIC_USERNAME and WEBLOGIC_PASSWORD to match your configurations in the WebLogic plugin file (earlier copied to agent's plugin directory)
  • Save the changes and restart the agent.
  • /etc/init.d/site24x7monagent restart

Monitoring additional metrics:

  • To monitor additional metrics, edit the "weblogic.py" file and add the new metrics that need monitoring
  • Increment the plugin version value in the file "weblogic.py" to view the newly added metrics ( For e.g. Change the default plugin version from PLUGIN_VERSION = "1" to "PLUGIN_VERSION = "2")
