Oracle Weblogic is one of the leading JavaEE application servers in the market and a popular choice for customers for deploying their application. Monitoring of performance and availability is key to an effective application performance management strategy.
AppDynamics automatically discovers and monitors application code running on Weblogic and provides deep visibility of how it executes through the JVM in production. This enables users to understand where latency is spent and how system resource like CPU and memory is consumed by an application and business transactions. It's a vital tool for developers who want to understand more about their applications during load testing.
Monitor Business Transactions
AppDynamics can also auto-discover business transactions from common entry points in Weblogic and its JVM such as servlets, struts actions, spring MVC, web services calls and even custom POJO entry points. From this context users can see how business transactions execute through various Java components like SOAP, EJB, JDBC, JMS, CICS as well as remote calls cross JVM and CLR calls for distributed transactions.
Real-Time Alerting for WebLogic
AppDynamics also provides dynamic SLA base-lining and pro-active alerting so that performance issues can be notified as they surface, giving application and production support teams an early warning before end user experience and service levels start to breach.
OutOfMemoryException and Memory Leaks
AppDynamics also monitors Weblogic Server memory providing the user with visibility of heap usage, garbage collection and utilization of key memory pools over-time. AppDynamics can also track and monitor memory leaks automatically inside Weblogic Server and its JVM with minimal user analysis allowing root cause to be found in minutes instead of days or weeks.
Detect Thrown Exceptions
AppDynamics can collect and report all application run-time exceptions that are thrown inside Weblogic Server. This provide users with visibility of stack traces that are thrown when business transactions and user requests timeout or fail.
More about What You Can Do with AppDynamics Weblogic Performance Monitoring
You’re able to visualize and map JVM dependencies, automatically discovering and mapping of all tiers that service and interact with your java Application and JVM. This gives you a far superior high-level view into your application performance than other Java performance tools.
You’re also able to Monitor JVM health and Performance, understanding the health of your JVM with key Java profiling metrics like response time, throughput, exception rate, and garbage collection time as well as key system resource like CPU, memory, and disk I/O. And finally, you can troubleshoot Java Code Latency in Minutes, getting full visibility of Java code execution as business transactions and requests are processed by the JVM. This allows you to isolate latency and pinpoint its root cause in minutes.
We engaged the AppDynamics Enablement Team and within a week we found over a dozen major defects that were affecting the performance and stability of our products. Great team, great enablement.
Bob Hartley, Family Search, Development Manager
We're enthusiastic with the support we received from the AppDynamics training team. They helped us gain critical visibility into our applications that's helped us make better architectural and design decisions.
