WLSDM Installation Best Practice Architecture


WLSDM Agent Managed Server Selection: If there is no cluster configuration and ManagedServers are independent with the same configuration to serve same application(s) consider above CLUSTER wlsdm_agent.jar structure, too. Install wlsdm_agent.jar for one ManagedServer hosted on the same machine(s)
Optional WLSDM Agent: There is no need to install wlsdm_agent.jar for monitoring JMX MBean Objects, WebLogic Logs and Application Response Times. $wlsdm_package/jar/wlsdm_agent.jar must be installed for back-end monitoring and remote JVM actions. It is highly recommended to install at least on one managed server
Agent Overhead: WLSDM agent has almost zero overhead on managed server resources and it is only used for RJVM operations. Its cost is negligible. WLSDM injecting nothing to runtime codes

Quick Step by Step Installation Guide

Already RUNNING Domain

1. copy $wlsdm_package/jar/wlsdm_agent.jar to /path/to/wlsdm_agent.jar on the managed server machine(s)
[[email protected]]$ mkdir $DOMAIN_HOME/wlsdm_agent [[email protected]]$ cp $wlsdm_package/jar/wlsdm_agent.jar $DOMAIN_HOME/wlsdm_agent/wlsdm_agent.jar


2. add wlsdm_agent.jar to WebLogic managed server´s JVM Arguments as below: --> *${JAVA_OPTIONS}
(Consider above best practice architecture and add wlsdm_agent.jar for the chosen WebLogic managed server(s)...) Note: Choose appropriate option according to your WebLogic environment. Replace "/path/to" with absolute folder path and keep "WLSDM/temp/JFR" as relative path! *2.1. JRockit and JDK 1.6: Add the following WLSDM JVM parameters to WebLogic managed servers´ JVM Arguments; JRockit: -javaagent:/path/to/wlsdm_agent.jar -Dwlsdm.agent.logger.level=INFO -XX:FlightRecorderOptions=repository=WLSDM/temp/JFR -XX:+DisableExplicitGC JDK 1.6: -javaagent:/path/to/wlsdm_agent.jar -Dwlsdm.agent.logger.level=INFO -XX:+DisableExplicitGC *2.2. Lower JDK 1.7.0_40: Add the following WLSDM JVM parameters to managed servers´ JVM Arguments; -javaagent:/path/to/wlsdm_agent.jar -Dwlsdm.agent.logger.level=INFO -XX:+DisableExplicitGC *2.3. JDK 1.7.0_40 and Higher and JDK 1.8: Add the following WLSDM & JFR JVM parameters to managed servers´ JVM Arguments; -javaagent:/path/to/wlsdm_agent.jar -Dwlsdm.agent.logger.level=INFO -XX:+UnlockCommercialFeatures -XX:+FlightRecorder -XX:FlightRecorderOptions=repository=WLSDM/temp/JFR -XX:+DisableExplicitGC


WebLogic AdminServer and WLSDM Agent: Do NOT install wlsdm_agent.jar to WebLogic AdminServer. Never add wlsdm_agent.jar JVM arguments to AdminServer startup scripts (startWebLogic.sh or setDomainEnv.sh) otherwise WLSDM throws ERROR and WebLogic AdminServer fails to start. Or use if statements in the scripts to bypass AdminServer JVM argument assertion. When WebLogic AdminServer fails to start then consider this case and simply remove wlsdm_agent.jar arguments from AdminServer startup script

 GC JVM Argument Info: By default calls to System.gc() are enabled (-XX:-DisableExplicitGC). WLSDM uses and recommends -XX:+DisableExplicitGC to disable calls to System.gc() for better RMI performance. Remember, with or without this parameter JVM/WebLogic still performs garbage collection when necessary. This is a useful JVM argument to keep WebLogic managed servers GC safe and also can be add to Admin Server, too. For more information: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/articles/java/vmoptions-jsp-140102.html  Known Issue-1: After the complete WLSDM installation if the "Smart Dashboards > JVM System Resources" page is not working well and does not show the metric values properly then add "-Djavax.management.builder.initial=weblogic.management.jmx.mbeanserver.WLSMBeanServerBuilder" JVM argument to the relevant Managed Server(s) and restart the server(s).


 How to add WLSDM JVM Parameters to WebLogic managed server arguments? (If you know how to add JVM arguments to WebLogic then skip to step 3) a) With WebLogic NodeManager: to instrument managed server instances started and stopped through the Node Manager, use the administration console
from the administration console, navigate to "Environments > Servers > (select your server) > Server Start > Arguments" add the above suitable JVM entry to Arguments section and save the page:
Environments > Servers > (select your server) > Server Start > Arguments

b) Without WebLogic NodeManager: add the following entry (add before Java executes) to the "startManagedServer" file UNIX / LINUX / MAC OS X:"startManagedServer.sh"  
export JAVA_OPTIONS="$JAVA_OPTIONS -javaagent:/path/to/wlsdm_agent.jar -Dwlsdm.agent.logger.level=INFO -XX:+UnlockCommercialFeatures -XX:+FlightRecorder -XX:FlightRecorderOptions=repository=WLSDM/temp/JFR -XX:+DisableExplicitGC"
WINDOWS:"startManagedServer.cmd"
set JAVA_OPTIONS=%JAVA_OPTIONS% -javaagent:"C:\path\to\wlsdm_agent.jar" -Dwlsdm.agent.logger.level=INFO -XX:+UnlockCommercialFeatures -XX:+FlightRecorder -XX:FlightRecorderOptions=repository=WLSDM/temp/JFR -XX:+DisableExplicitGC
NOTE: there is no need to install "wlsdm_agent.jar" to the WebLogic Admin Server!

3. (re)start WebLogic managed server(s) which wlsdm_agent.jar is installed. after restarting managed server(s), below logs must be seen in managed server log files. this means WLSDM agent is deployed successfully ManagedServer Log:
<Mar 4, 2015 1:13:24 PM PDT> <Info> <WLSDM> <BEA-000000> <WLSDM agent loaded successfully. Version: v3.4.2>
<Mar 4, 2015 1:13:24 PM PDT> <Info> <WLSDM> <BEA-000000> <RJVM operation is bound in the registry with the name wlsdm_agent_remote_operation.>
                            

4. copy $wlsdm_package/war/wlsdm.war to ${WEBLOGIC_DOMAIN_HOME}/console-ext/. folder on the admin server machine

5. then (re)start WebLogic admin server. that is all, WLSDM console will deploy automatically after restarting admin server, below logs must be seen in admin server log files this means WLSDM console is deployed successfully and WLSDM console is ready to monitor WebLogic domain AdminServer Log:

Main WLSDM menu is located on the left side and default is collapsed. It can be expand/collapse by menu icon

Page operations icon is located on the right top of every pages. Visual page settings and page functions can be listed on page operations menu

WLSDM Console has "Quick Tour" for the first login. WLSDM Console usage is very easy and user friendly. Just follow "quick tour" steps!

Visit all WLSDM default dashboards, pages and discover WLSDM console features. Especially "Operational Tools & Utils" pages will increase interactivity between Administrator/Developer/DevOps and WebLogic Domain. Enjoy your "Native WebLogic Monitoring and Diagnostic" solution.

Transform all kind of scripts to JMX MBeans

Go to "Configuration > Monitoring & Diagnostics > Generic DevOps MBeans (tab)" page.

Use Generic DevOps MBean functionality and never miss any detail about WebLogic domain environment. Export the DevOps scripts and share with team members. Do not let valuable scripts have lost in CRON jobs.

This feature is named as DevOps MBean to increase the interactivity between WebLogic domains and deployed applications. It is possible to monitor i.e. Waiting orders, logged in user count, 3rd party webservice invocation response times... etc.

The left screen capture at below is the script part and the right screen capture is the Output on the assigned custom dashboard. Totally parametric and supports to define custom actions for the assigned threshold.


Step-1 Write Shell Script: Ping database and calculate database response time using WebLogic API (weblogic.jar)

#Author: WLSDM | 2017

#Variables
_dbStatus=0 
#0:DB_DOWN,1:DB_UP

#start DB Ping
_startTime=$(($(date +%s%N)/1000000))
_pingResult=`java -cp weblogic.jar utils.dbping ORACLE_THIN $YOUR_USER_NAME $YOUR_PASSWORD $YOUR_IP:$YOUR_PORT/$YOUR_SERVICE_NAME`
_endTime=$(($(date +%s%N)/1000000))
_dbResponseTime=`expr $_endTime - $_startTime`

if [[ "$_pingResult" == *"Success!!!"* ]]; then
  _dbStatus=1
  #echo "Database connection SUCCESS!!!"
  #DB_UP
  echo DatabaseStatus=$_dbStatus
else
  _dbStatus=0
  #echo "Database connection FAILURE!!!"
  #DB_DOWN
  echo DatabaseStatus=$_dbStatus
fi
echo DatabaseResponseTime=$_dbResponseTime


Shell Script Output:

DatabaseStatus=1
DatabaseResponseTime=1218

Step-2 Use WLSDM Generic DevOps MBean Wizard


"User Defined Generic DevOps MBean" wizard is availabe on "Configuration > Monitoring & Diagnostics" page. List records on "Generic DevOps MBeans" tab and use "New Generic DevOps MBean" button from "Page Operations" menu to open the wizard.
