HTTPRequestInfo: Currently at Version 1.0
HTTPRequestInfo is a servlet that echoes back to the client browser various attributes of the request. These include the URL itself, server attributes of the WebSphere server used to make the request, all the request headers on the inbound HTTP request and finally all the cookies attached to the request as well.
This tool is useful for debugging problems with TAIs of security proxies.
To install the servlet, use the WAS fast path. I only changed the application name from "HTTPRequestInfoEar" to just "HTTPRequestInfo". I accepted all other WAS defaults except that I mapped the module to both my Portal cluster as well as my IHS (Apache) webservers which are under DMgr control. That is so that when I regen the plugin and redeploy it, the HTTPRequestInfo context root is routed to my portal cluster.
PortalCacheStatistics is a servlet that will allow you to see an overview of all the Dynacaches in the Application Server at a glance. Furthermore, the default overview page auto-refreshes every 30 seconds making it easy to spot trends. The download includes both the EAR file to install as well as installation instructions.
0.9.5: fixes a bug whereby if a cache is built by the time PortalCacheStatistics renders for the first time, it will never show up. I was sticking the cache names in the session on first build and never refreshing them until 0.9.5.
0.9.7: On the "single cache instance" screen, I've added the ability to see the cache time-out. Note that in Dynacache, time-out is set on each item, not on the cache. So, I've taken the first item in the cache, if it exists, and shown the time-out for that item.
0.9.9: Added general performance improvements. Fixed a bug whereby the Single Cache Entry did not display history.
JVMUtilities2: Currently at version 0.1
1. Initiate a Javacore (a.k.a. "thread dump")
3. Force a System.GC() to mark/sweep/compact the Java heap
Note: Since WAS 8.0, you can initiate each of these items from the Deployment Manager console as well.
