ITCAM for Transactions - Robotic RPT and https script with SNI
ericmtn 1000009W88 Visits (4268)
As the ITCAM for Transactions with ISM agent and its https monitor doesn't support https server with SNI (Server Name Indication) enabled, the best option to monitor availability and performance of HTTPS server with SNI is to use the **Robotic Response Time (RRT) agent** (product code t6) included in ITCAM for Transactions v184.108.40.206 software.
Record a HTTPS test script targeting your https/TLS web server where SNI is enabled, using Rational Performance Tester workbench recorder.
Upload such script to the ITCAM for Tx AMC, using RPT and Tivoli Export Plugin feature.
Then playback robotically such script on the robotic response time (RRT) agent, using a robotic profile.
See for reference this RPT technote:
On RRT agent side, refer to this matrix to use the right version of RRT agent to match your RPT version:
Based on the above links, consider using, at least, RPT version 8.6 for recording, and RRT agent version 7.4
If the robotic playback on the RRT agent fails with error like:
then consider the following settings....
RPT's RPT_VMARGS parameters can be found in the following file in the Robotic Response Time T6 agent:
On Windows: CAND
On Linux: CAND
So add the following line at the end of "jvm_properties" part (see example below) :
Remark: The RRT T6 agent needs to be restarted for this change to take effect.
Extract of managed_jvm.xml as an example:
