Instrumentation Technologies

  • Overview of each
    • CBEs
    • ARM
    • JMX
    • WSDM
    • Managed Agent Explorer
      • What's important is the commonality between JMX & WSDM
  • What are we working on for 4.4
  • Questions to be able to answer
    • Relationship of WEF to CBE

Demo Scenario

Show the monitoring and how it works. Then bring in the management to complete the picture.

We will reuse the simple chatt application from Matt. Modify it to use a thread pool to do the work. The transaction will fail when the thread pool is empty. We will add the control layer (WSDM) to the thread pool. Use a service group and MAX to find it. Use both the set properties and an operation to control the pool. Create a "RequestHandler" bean that all the reuests run through. There will be a sleep statement in there that causes the transaction to exceed the threshold. Use the JMX tooling to create an mBean for the "Request Handler" that manipulates it in such a way that the requests don't exceed the threshold. Use MAX to affect the sleep value.

  • Start w/ARM to trace a transaction. Show the ARM tooling, the instrumentation, and how you can view the ARM information.
    • When testing, the transaction initially takes too long.
  • Now we want an event (CBE or WEF) to be signaled when the transaction fails.
    • Other possibilities would be if a transaction takes too long, or if it gets lost, fire the event.
  • Show the CBE log viewer with the ARM in the extension element.
    • (can we link the views???)


  1. Check in cleaned up presentation (MM)
  2. Reuse existing chat app from Matt (MM)
  3. Create ARM instrumentation (MM)
