Tips for instrumenting WebSphere Application Server

Follow these tips when you instrument WebSphere® Application Server to collect response time breakdown data.

You must provide correct information in the Application Server Instrumenter.

Server home is the complete path to the WebSphere Application Server installation directory. By default, on Microsoft Windows the server home is C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer. In Linux and AIX®, the default server home is /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer.

Server name is the name of the WebSphere Application Server instance to instrument. To see a list of server names, change to the bin directory, and type this command at a command prompt: wsadmin -conntype none -c "puts stdout [$AdminConfig list Server]".

An example of output from this command is as follows:

WASX7357I: By request, this scripting client is not connected to any server process. Certain configuration and application operations will be available in local mode. server1(cells/MachinenameNode01Cell/nodes/MachinenameNode01/servers/server1|server.xml#Server_1183122130078)

In this case, server1 is the server name.

Profile name is the name of the profile that is associated with the server to instrument.

To see a list of profiles from WebSphere Application Server, change to the bin directory, and type this command at a command prompt: manageprofiles -listProfiles. By default, in Microsoft Windows the bin directory is C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin. In Linux and AIX, the default bin directory is /opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/bin.
