    Hi,

    We have used WAS Perf tuning toolkit,and found it to be very useful.
    We like to know ,can we use correlation id to track the request flow between two layers in application. The alert could be generated for the rollback in which layer has happened

    I tried PTT and its just awesome. We would like to know the overhead level to the servers when PTT is active and gathering data? Will there be a significant overhead to the server? Also, can we customize the aleart rule to send email/sms when any threshold is breached?

    Sorry for the delayed response.

    PTT should be run on the desktop but it relies on WAS PMI feature for the data. The overhead for PMI is about 3%. See this technote ( http://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21206317 )

    PTT is supposed to be used for performance tuning and not for system management/activity monitoring. This is the reason email/sms alerts have not been built into it.

    Sorry for the delayed response.

    PTT uses WAS PMI data to help the users tune WAS configurations and it doesnt use any application data, eg correlation id.
    Can you please explain more about your idea/expectation?

    Fantastic tool, thanks.
    I just wanted to say this is one of the most useful tools I have found for investigating WebSphere Application Server performance issues.

    If only I could have it run as a monitoring server, I'd use it as my monitoring tool as well :)

    WAS dynacache data-metrics

    ‏2012-10-09T08:18:57Z  
    Hello,
    WAS PTT is the missing tool we were waiting for many years as a replacement for Tivoli Performance Viewer (WAS embedded) which is a very unpleasant and unfriendly tool.
    This tool is a a huge leap forward that will help us, in our day to day work, to investigate performance problems and tunes our customers WAS platforms (eg: during stress test loads)

    Question:
    -1- Is there a plan to integrate WAS dynacache data-metrics in WAS PTT ? We are hosting WebSphere Commerce websites and dynacache performances is a very important component to tune in loaded Commerce websites environements ... (datas like inMemoryCachedDatas, disksCachedData, MemoryCadheHits, DiskCacheHits ........ )

    Most generally It will be very usefull to find information like the ones that appears in the Cache Monitor application as we know the PMI can collect DynaCache data.

    -2- Is there a plan that could permit to export the graphical views.

    Thank you.

    Hi Stephane
    Thanks for the feedback.
    1. We are working on adding new features in PTT so that it would be easier to support other WAS based products too.
    2. Export is also on our improvement list

    We dont have any timeline, but will surely keep the forum updated.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Does the PTT causes some workload to application server? and How many application servers is advisable to monitor at the same time?

    Regards

    Hi,

     

    We have a 2 node clustered environment. Each node as it's proxy server. In PTT we found high Response Time and high App Server Response time. As the proxy servers are on the same node/machine as the app servers what can explain these high values, any idea?

    Regards
