WebLogic is one of the leading J2EE™ application servers in today’s marketplace, and monitoring WebLogic for its performance and availability becomes inevitable. Applications Manager, a tool for monitoring the performance and availability of applications and servers, helps in BEA WebLogic Management.
Applications Manager automatically diagnoses, notifies, and corrects performance and availability problems not only with WebLogic Servers, but also with the servers and applications in the entire IT infrastructure.
The Web Transaction Analyzer allows you to view Java method level breakup of response times. It enables end to end Web Transaction monitoring, from URL to SQL queries of a web application and provides the time taken in the various tiers like Web, Java, EJB, and JDBC. Application Admins can easily troubleshoot problem areas by obtaining the slow URLs and take a look at the trace (method level) all the way to the SQL query.

WebLogic monitoring includes delivering comprehensive fault management and proactive alarm notifications, checking for impending problems, triggering appropriate actions and gathering performance data for planning, analysis, and reporting.

"We, at Hughes Network Systems are very pleased with the Applications Manager product. We looked at a number of other Application Management products, and they were all very expensive.

Support has been very responsive, and you have added a number of features that we have requested (Polls to retry can be configured individually for any attribute of a monitor and multiple varbind support in alarm messages)"Anthony Myers
