TIBCO 5.12 monitoring with Dynatrace OneAgent

Hi , I have TIBCO 5.12 that I was planning to monitor via OneAgent. However when I looked at the support metrics of OneAgent it is mentioned that it supports TIBCO BusinessWorks version 5.8.2-5.13.

Is there any possibility to monitor TIBCO version 5.12 by OneAgent. Business Connectors , Business Works, Enterprise Massage System components of TIBCO are deployed. Does it monitor all these components of TIBCO ?

Any suggestion if I can leverage Hawk metrics and display them in OneAgent. Applications those are communicating via TIBCO. would we be able to see performance impact of TIBCO on these applications.

AFAIK from the Tibco world, only Tibco BusinessWorks is supported. For the other Tibco components written in Java (don't know if Tibco has any components in .Net/Go/... ) you could define custom services, but it will require decent Java knowledge and analysis where to put the custom service in the code.

For other components, you are generally out of luck. You can just monitor the availability of these processes and network traffic.

HAWK could be integrated using Activegate plugin or by pushing the data via API to Dynatrace. However, I'm not aware of any available out-of-box integration, so you will need to be to write it yourself.

I have installed oneagent on the server, can see the TIBCO process, but no service running on it.
Wanted to understand which JAVA classes to target. Any hint or suggestion would be helpful!
I have also split these processes based on AppNodes, but still no proper services are seen. just some resource level services when the AppNode is restarted. Please suggest.
Any other ideas to trace these application transactions are appreciated 


Currently using BW 6.2.1 but will be upgraded to BW 6.7.0 in the near future.



Hi Julius,

 

Please direct which classes could be looked into for custom service. Any keywords ?

We are feeling the pinch of this one as well with Tibco EMS.

In regards of tracing Tibco BusinessWork and Tibco EMS. I think this works, because I saw the following enhancement request https://answers.dynatrace.com/spaces/483/dynatrace-product-ideas/idea/211801/rfe-allow-purepath-foll...


My customer uses Tibco Business Works with Tibco Business Connect. They would like to know if Dynatrace can trace the message all the way through. Does anyone have experience with monitoring Business Connect?


We do have a customer running Tibco BC as well as Tibco BW. Deep monitoring works (as it is based on Apache Tomcat) and PurePaths are captured.
