Event Types

In CMDB > Event Types, search for “tomcat” in the Device Type and Description column to see the event types associated with this device.

Rules

There are no predefined rules for this device.

Reports

In Analytics > Reports, search for “tomcat” in the Name column to see the reports associated with this application or device. Configuration

JMX

  1. Add the necessary parameters to the Tomcat startup script.

Windows

Modify the file ${CATALINA_BASE}\bin\catalina.bat by adding these arguments for JVM before the comment rem

—-Execute The Requested Command ——

Linux

Modify the file ${CATALINA_BASE}/bin/catalina.sh by adding these arguments for JVM before the comment # —-Execute

  1. Edit the password file password.

The first column is user name and the second column is password). AccelOps only needs monitor access.

  1. In Linux, set permissions for the access and jmxremote.password files so that they are read-only and accessible only by the Tomcat operating system user.

You can now configure AccelOps to communicate with your device by following the instructions in Setting Access Credentials for Device Discovery, and then initiate discovery of the device as described in the topics in Discovering Infrastructure.

  2. Click Install.
  3. Select Remote file system and browse to {WebSphere_Home}/AppServer/installableApps/PerfServletApp.ear.
  4. Click Next.

The Context Root for the application will be set to /wasPerfTool, but you can edit this during installation.  Configure Security for the Application

  1. Go to Security > Global Security.
  2. Select Enable application security.
  3. Go to Applications > Application Types > Websphere Enterprise Applications.

  5. Click Security role to user/group mapping.
  6. Click Map Users/Groups.

 

  1. Use the Search feature to find and select the AccelOps user you want to provide with access to the application,
  2. Click Map Special Subjects.
  3. Select All Authenticated in Application’s Realm.
  4. Click OK.

Start the Application

  1. Go to Applications > Application Types > WebSphere enterprise application.
  2. Select perfServletApp.
  3. Click Start.
  4. In a web browser, launch the application by going to http://<ip>:<port>/wasPerfTool/servlet/perfservlet.

JMX

Configuring the Default JMX Port

By default, your Websphere application server uses port 8880 for JMX. You can change this by logging in to your application server console and going to Application servers > {Server Name} > Ports > SOAP_CONNECTOR_ADDRESS. The username and password for JMX are the same as the credentials logging into the console.

To configure JMX communications between your Websphere application server and AccelOps, you need to copy several files from your application server to the Websphere configuration directory for each AccelOps virtual appliance that will be used for discovery and performance monitoring jobs. AccelOps does not include these files because of licensing restrictions.

  1. Copy these files to the directory /opt/phoenix/config/websphere/ for each Supervisor, Worker, and Collector in your AccelOps deployment.
File Type Location
Client Jars a.  ${WebSphere_Home}/AppServer/runtimes/com.ibm.ws.admin.client.jar

b.  ${WebSphere_Home}/AppServer/plugins/com.ibm.ws.security.crypto.jar

SSL files a.  ${WebSphere_Home}/AppServer/profiles/${Profile_Name}/etc/DummyClientKeyFile.jks

b.  ${WebSphere_Home}/AppServer/profiles/${Profile_Name}/etc/DummyClientTrustFile.jks

  1. Install IBM JDK 1.6 or higher in the location /opt/phoenix/config/websphere/java for each Supervisor, Worker, and Collector in your AccelOps deployment.

You can now configure AccelOps to communicate with your IBM Websphere device by following the instructions in Setting Access Credentials for Device Discovery, and then initiate discovery of the device as described in the topics in Discovering Infrastructure.
