Adding Oracle WebLogic Server sources

To capture resource monitoring data from Oracle WebLogic Server, you must configure the data source.

Before you begin

To capture resource monitoring data from Oracle WebLogic Server, you must specify the path to the client files:
  • wljmxclient.jar
  • wljmsclient.jar
  • wlclient.jar
These Oracle WebLogic client files are provided with Oracle WebLogic, not with HCL OneTest™ Performance, so you must copy the client files from the server to a folder on the workbench computer. In HCL OneTest Performance, click Window > Preferences > Test > Performance Resource Monitoring > Oracle WebLogic Client Preferences and specify the path to the folder containing the client files. The versions of the client files must match the version of Oracle WebLogic Server running on the server under test. By default, for Oracle WebLogic Server 10g Release 3 (10.3), the client files are installed in the c:\bea\wlserver_10.3\server\lib\ folder.

About this task

The resource monitoring for Oracle WebLogic server works with the Internet Inter-ORB Protocol (IIOP). If you use JMX protocol in Oracle WebLogic Server, you can use the JVM monitoring option.

Procedure

  1. In the Schedule editor, select the Resource Monitoring category, and click Add.
  2. On the Location page, for a new resource monitoring location, specify the connection and authentication information for the computer that runs the Administration Server instance of Oracle WebLogic Server for the domain. If you need to change the port that is used to communicate with the Administration Server for the domain, change the information in Connection. Typically, your WebLogic system administrator specifies this information. An Oracle WebLogic domain consists of one or more Oracle WebLogic Server instances. One server is the Administration Server. If you want to collect resource monitoring from an Oracle WebLogic domain that consisting of multiple servers, the specified host must be the Administration Server. The Administration Server is also known as the domain controller.
  3. If administrative security is enabled on the Administration Server, select Administrative security enabled.
    1. Type the user ID and password for Oracle WebLogic Server in Authentication.
    2. Select Save Password to save your password locally. If you do not save your password, you might be prompted for it (depending on the host system configuration) when you edit the configured location or when you run test schedules that use the location.
  4. On the Resource page, select the type of data to capture. The tree view shows the application servers that the Administration Server manages and their counter groups and counters. Be selective; monitoring all possible resource data requires substantial amounts of memory. Clear the Show only selected counters check box to see all available counters. Hold your mouse pointer over a counter to see details about what that counter measures.
  5. Configure the options on the Options page.
    1. In Polling Interval specify in seconds the interval for collecting resource data. For example, if you accept the default of 5 seconds, counter information is collected at 5-second intervals from the specified host during the schedule run.
    2. In Timeout Interval specify in seconds the time to wait for a response. If the resource monitoring host does not respond within this amount of time during a schedule run, an error is logged.
  6. To collect the resource monitoring data for the system under test that is in the cloud, in the Cloud Options tab, click the Location in Public Cloud check box.
  7. Click Next.
  8. Specify a location and name and click Finish.
