Link to the survey at: You use the Introscope Workstation to view and manipulate data that is stored by the Enterprise Manager. This guide describes the Workstation components you ll use on a daily basis to monitor and manage your application, including the Workstation Console, Investigator, Sample Dashboards, Transaction Tracer, and Reporting.

This chapter includes these topics: Using AutoProbe automates this process, with the ProbeBuilder dynamically adding probes to the Java Application when the application starts. The probes measure specific pieces of information about an application without changing the application s business logic. An Introscope agent is installed on the same machine as the instrumented application.

After the probes have been installed in the bytecode, the Java application is referred to as an instrumented application. When the Java application with probes is running, it is called a managed application. This illustration shows how Introscope prepares a Java application to be managed: The managed application and Introscope components As a managed application runs, probes relay collected data to the agent. The agent then collects and summarizes the data and sends it to the Enterprise Manager.

Data collected by the Enterprise Manager can be accessed through one or more Workstations. You can use the Workstation to view performance data, and configure the Enterprise Manager to perform such tasks as collecting information for later analysis, and creating alerts.

As a managed application runs, Introscope agents collect performance data in real time, and send the information to the Enterprise Manager. The Workstation allows you to configure the Enterprise Manager, organize metrics, define actions based on their values, and display the information you choose in the most convenient format for you. Filter and view performance metrics for various elements of the system your application runs on.

Drill down to uncover the root cause of system performance issues. Create graphical displays of metrics. Create reports of system performance data. It is important to understand the difference between these two methods. Java Web Start uses a command or browser to download and invoke a full Workstation client, while WebView allows users to launch a simplified, in-browser, read-only alternative to the full Workstation tools.

Introscope and the Workstation Use a command like java -client -Xms64m -Xmxm -jar launcher. See Starting the Workstation on page 12 for more information. The EM downloads and launches a. Use full workstation functionality. Browse metric data and graphical metric data displays.

Administering the Workstation This section has information on starting and stopping the Workstation, and configuring it for tunnelling and for SSL. Starting the Workstation To start Introscope Workstation: On Windows, you can: See Launching the Workstation using specific parameters on page Using the command line see Executing Workstation functions from the command line on page In the login dialog, enter: If authentication was successful, the Console opens.


If authentication was unsuccessful, a message notifies you of the failure and the Introscope Workstation Login window reopens. Machines using proxy authentication to connect to an Enterprise Manager might introoscope automatically download the correct JVM if it is missing. On the client system, Java Tutorail Start will launch the workstation using a Java version defined by these two files in the Enterprise Manager: In this case you should download Inteoscope 1.

The attribute lists Java version ranges in preferred wilg from tuutorial to last. Each range is separated by a single space. Java Web Start checks the client system for all version ranges in the listed order and installs the first qualifying version that it finds. If Java Web Start does not find a pre-installed JVM that matches the listed version ranges, it downloads the newest available version permitted by all of the version ranges taken together, regardless of order.

When the j2se version is set to “1. Web Start will first check the client system for Java 1. It would never download Java 1. CA Wily has deliberately chosen 1. These parameters can be used in either: In the command line example, quotes are used around the entire agent name because the name contains a space.

The table below lists other parameters you can use. Options Description – Suppresses the login screen and logs into Workstation loginimmediate immediately using specified hostname and port number, or default values.

Unsupported SSL/TLS Version

nitroscope Use the next three parameters to enter login information: Specifies login port number; defaults to if unspecified. Specifies authentication values for username and password in a comma-separated list. Administering the Workstation You must include this parameter with every request to the Workstation Command Line Interface. Required if the page parameter is investigator.

The wiily path to display in the Investigator window, for a specified agent. You must specify an agent if you use this parameter. The start time, in standard Java format of milliseconds, for a historical tutotial range in the Investigator window, or the start time for a transaction tracer Historical Query, depending on the value of the page parameter.

The end time, in standard Java format of milliseconds, for a historical time range in the Investigator window, or the end time for a transaction tracer Historical Query, depending on the value of introscoe page parameter. The argument to the AgentSpecifier parameter must contain the agent name including the Enterprise Manager host name; special characters, such as the symbol which separates elements of the agent name, must be escaped with backslashes.

In this example, the dashboard will display only data from WebLogic Agent: Subsequent URL requests open a new window in the existing Workstation instance. Connecting to alternate Enterprise Managers You can start multiple Workstation application instances on different Enterprise Manager hosts inntroscope a single browser, using the parameters specified in Launching the Workstation using specific parameters on page To connect to an alternate or different EM host, change the loginhost parameter as appropriate.


Executing Workstation functions from the command line You can execute Workstation functions from a command line. This is useful if you nitroscope to execute these functions from a script for the purpose intrroscope batching or scheduling the functions.

Here is an outline of the command: On UNIX, change escaped backslashes to forward slashes. If adding your own optional JVM arguments, insert them before the -jar argument. The following arguments appear in the example. Helps resolve potential difficulties between drivers and Java APIs.

Modifying the Eclipse arguments everything from -consolelog onward is not recommended except at the request of CA Wily support. Additional parameters available for using Command Line Workstation are listed in the table in Launching the Workstation using specific parameters on page Ending your workstation session Logging out of the Workstation Logging out of the Workstation ends the current session, but does not shut it down, so that you can log in again from the Authentication dialog box.

This is useful if you want to log in with different connection parameters, such as a different host, port, user name, or password. When you log out of the Workstation, it saves the number of open Investigator and Console windows, so the same configuration appears when you next log in. To log out introsclpe the Workstation: When you exit the Workstation, it saves the number of open Investigator and Console windows, so introscopr same configuration appears when you next log in.

To exit the Workstation: Performing Workstation functions from the command line Many Workstation functions can be performed from a command line using the Introscope Command-Line Workstation. See the Introscope Configuration and Wwily Guide introscopf more information.

This is necessary for a forward-proxy server configuration where the Workstation is running behind a firewall that only allows outbound HTTP traffic routed through the proxy server. To use Workstation tunneling: If the proxy server cannot be reached at the specified host and port, Administering the Workstation Property Description Example truststore location path Path to the location of a truststore containing trusted EM certificates. Note that on Windows, a backslash must be escaped with another backslash.

Again, backslashes must be escaped. If this property is blank, Workstation will use the default list. Specify a truststore to configure the Workstation to authenticate the server EM. If no truststore is specified, the server is automatically trusted.

Specify a keystore only if the EM has been configured to require client authentication. Authorized users can perform administrative and configuration functions. The Workstation presents information in these windows: Console shows data in dashboards, which contain Data Viewers. Da presents a tree view of agents, applications, resources, and metrics.
