AppMon Support For Oracle Service Bus

PNarayanan
Newcomer

Does AppMon support monitoring of applications on Oracle Service Bus?

We are using OSB Version 11g and are looking for a way to calibrate AppMon in order to monitor web-service requests and responses from an end-to-end perspective. We have setup instrumentation for Webservices using tips from https://community.dynatrace.com/community/display/... and can see references to OSB and weblogic classes when checking PurePaths. But we are looking for a way to drill-down into the individual request to inspect the request payload (SOAP request), trace flow through OSB proxy stages and transformations and also inspect response payload.

Are there modules or sensors specific to OSB that will be of use for this purpose?

Thanks!

I don't believe there is a way to get exactly what you are looking for. In general Dynatrace AppMon is not designed to be inspecting or analyzing payloads. There are a few exceptions such as being able to capture messaging contents but even there you can only view this data in the details of the PurePath tree and cannot really do any analysis or transformations on this at the moment.

We use AppMon with OSB and are able to get plenty of good information but not payloads. If you are looking to be able to just identify individual requests perhaps you can utilize some sort of identifier such as a header or something obtained through a custom sensor if you are looking for failures or performance issues.

Hello James,

Thanks you very much for your reply. Even if not for payloads, it would be useful if we could trace through from a request to the Service Bus all the way through the proxies, transformations and to any business services we may be calling.

Monitoring threads is a big requirement for us but currently the threads show us information just from an OSB-classes perspectives (since Dynatrace is hooked into the JVM). We are trying to correlate the threads to actual requests/responses.

Thanks!
