Web Services is an XML based technology that allow applications to communicate with each other, regardless of the environment, by exchanging messages in a standardized format ( XML ), via web interfaces ( SOAP and WSDL APIs ).
IT360 provides a flexible approach to manage a SOA that uses SOAP Web Services. It helps business managers to configure SLAs and track high level availablity of the Web Service. Application Admins can monitor the performance of these Web Services, by configuring IT360 to execute "Operations", published by the Web Service. By specifying the WSDL, a simple wizard helps you configure operations that need to be invoked, and gives the ability to specify arguments to the operation. In addition to this, the overall ability to configure thresholds on individual operation execution times and taking corrective actions are supported out-of-the-box.
After creating Web Services monitor, you can add Operations to the Web Service, for monitoring. Operations are abstract descriptions of actions, supported by the service. Select the Operations that you want to monitor and add it.
Follow the steps given below to add operations;
Click the Add Operation link, present on the right-hand side of the web services monitor screen. This displays the Add Operation screen that lists down the various Operations, present in the Web Service.
The operations, configured in the web service, get listed in the Select Operation drop-down list box. You can either choose any of these operations, or choose custom operation.
If you select a pre-configured operation, the SOAP Action and SOAP Request values for the operation will be automatically displayed. Replace the '?' in the SOAP request with your input value.
If you choose the custom operation, you have to specify the Operation Name, SOAP Action and SOAP Request values.
You can use the Test Operation option to check the output, before adding the operation for monitoring.
Click Save button, to add the operation. Click Save and Configure Another button, if you want to add the current operation and configure another one.
The Operations, thus added, will be listed in the details page, under the Operation Statistics section. In this section, you can view the details of the operation, such as Operation Name, SOAP Request, SOAP Response, Status and Execution time. You can also configure thresholds and alerts, for all the operations.
Click on icon, to edit the Operation Display name, as well as the Arguments. The complex arguments are displayed in a tree structure. This screen shows the list of input parameters, passed to the method, with the parameter name and the type of parameter.
