Resource management and analysis best practices for WebSphere DataPower
WebSphere DataPower architecture often includes integration with multiple endpoints. Downstream services may be front ended by DataPower for protocol transformation or authorization, orchestrations may be performed within a DataPower service’s policy rule, and logging services are often accessed. DataPower count and duration monitors and service level management configurations are well suited to mitigate performance variances within these endpoints. This article describes some of the methods for analyzing the resources allocated to these interactions. The article also describes how you can use DataPower service management tools within policy rule connections in addition to downstream services.
