If you are already using CA Application Performance Management (CA APM) in your organization, you can use CA APM to monitor the following statistics of a Tomcat server and monitor the health of smsps:
If you are already using CA Application Performance Management (CA APM) in your organization, you can use CA APM to monitor the following statistics of a Tomcat server and monitor the health of
CA Access Gateway:
- The average response time of each of the followingCA Access Gatewaycomponents:
- Session Discovery
- Java Web Agent
- Post Agent Session Writer
- Proxy Rules Filter
- Noodle Servlet
- HTTP Client
- The average response time of each backend server
- TheCA Access Gatewayrequest wait time
- Number of hits for each proxy rule
- TheCA Access GatewayAgent framework instances health data
The data monitoring section has the following format:
<Server>..monitor_data_buffer_size="1000"..</Server><metric-reporter name="CA APM Metric Reporter"> enabled="yes"class="com.ca.proxy.monitor.wily.WilyMetricReporter"endpoint="tcp://localhost:8886"</metric-reporter>
Specifies the size of the buffer the
CA Access Gatewaymaintains to store the collected statistics before sending them/statistics to CA APM.
Specifies the name of the metric reporter. You can use this name to debug any metric errors.
Specifies the state of the data monitoring feature. If you want to monitor the health of SPS, set the value to yes. If you do not want to monitor the health of the SPS, set the value to no.
Specifies the configuration details of the EPAgent. Start the EPAgent before you communicate with the SPS. The endpoint parameter has the following format:
Specifies the communication protocol that the EPAgent uses.
Specifies the hostname of the machine where the EPAgent is installed.
Specifies the port number the EPAgent uses to communicate with
CA Access Gateway. If you use TCP protocol, enter the network data port that is configured in EPAgent. If you use HTTP protocol, enter the HTTP port number that is configured in EPAgent.
Enable Data Monitoring
Perform the following steps to enable data monitoring:
Note: For information about configuring, see CA Application Performance Management documentation.
- Configure CA APM to collect metrics fromCA Access Gateway.
- Configure the server.conf file by performing the following steps:
- Open the server.conf file and navigate to the metric-reporter section.
- Set the following value:enabled=yes
- (Optional) To monitor the agent instance metrics configured withCA Access Gateway, set the following value:enablemonitoring=yes
- Save the changes.
- Configure the ACO for each Web Agent that is configured withCA Access Gateway.
- Start CA APM.
- RestartCA Access Gateway.
Monitor Web Agents with OneView Monitor
OneView Monitor reports cache statistics and other information to Policy Server, which administrators can use to analyze and fine-tune the Web Agent. You control OneView monitor with the following parameter:
Specifies whether the agent sends monitoring information to Policy Server.
