SL RTView Enterprise Monitor

Most large enterprises run complex business automation processes. These processes involve multiple stacks using several varieties and many instances of hardware and software. Ensuring the smooth operation of these IT resources is the task of End-to-End Monitoring, which provides “single pane of glass” views giving Operations and Management insight into the performance of their critical applications and environments. This single pane enables proactive monitoring of these resources through a holistic view across all systems, as well as visibility into both current and trending performance metrics. This is achieved by both out-of-the-box and customized, role-specific views for Operations at the user interface while enhancing, exploiting and coordinating existing and new monitoring assets at the back-end.

End-to-End Monitoring avoids the incomplete views of siloed monitoring tools, while requiring fewer skills to accomplish the monitoring of more system events. This means less reactive and more proactive monitoring that in-turn delivers a reduced risk of both downtime and poor performance.


Application-Oriented Monitoring in a Cloud Component World

The cloud revolution promises huge benefits in IT savings, but initially introduces even more complexity with new integration points and interfaces. This paper discusses the challenges inherent in monitoring complex applications based on component architectures, and how, if properly monitored, the nature of the cloud itself may ultimately provide the solution.

Detecting and Alerting on Fault Conditions in an Oracle Coherence Distributed Caching System
by Tom Lubinski, president and CEO of SL Corporation

Fault conditions in Oracle Coherence can lead to intolerable data loss or even complete cluster failure. Detecting these dangerous conditions using intelligent alerts as early as possible is critical to preventing outages and ensuring high availability in such systems. In this paper, techniques for achieving this using available JMX monitoring data are presented in the context of commonly encountered use cases.


Monitoring Oracle Coherence Using JMX: Challenges and Limitations  
by Tom Lubinski, president and CEO of SL Corporation

Oracle Coherence exposes extensive performance metrics via a built-in JMX interface. This paper discusses how to effectively leverage this information and some of the practical considerations that have been encountered in using these metrics in real-world monitoring situations.


Practical Considerations When Instrumenting Applications With JMX
 
by Tom Lubinski, president and CEO of SL Corporation

The use of JMX in custom application monitoring systems brings with it an array of unique challenges involving the aggregation, analysis, and visualization of real-time data. This paper discusses practical issues regarding data content and design of MBeans for optimal use in such systems. Some commonly overlooked requirements are explored and recommendations made for minimizing client-side development efforts.

Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) : Process Control for the Enterprise  
by Tom Lubinski, president and CEO of SL Corporation

As the nature of real-time information has evolved, the requirements for analysis and visualization of data have become more complex and sophisticated. There are key lessons to be learned from the process control industry’s decades of experience in dealing with real-time mission-critical data. This whitepaper discusses how lessons can be taken from traditional process monitoring applications and applied in today’s more complex multi-dimensional environments in order to deliver more effective and successful Business Activity Monitoring solutions for the enterprise.
