Improved overload protection and workload prioritization for WebSphere Application Server
In IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment, Intelligent Management features automatically protect against server overload, and the autonomic request flow manager (ARFM) lets you preferentially throttle traffic to ensure mission-critical applications continue to be served in a resource constrained environment. An enhancement in V8.5.5.3 called node-based ARFM now enables a faster reaction to high CPU and heap usage, and better differentiation for higher priority workloads. This article describes the CPU overload protection and concurrent request limit enhancements provided by node-based ARFM, and explains how to configure node-based ARFM and verify the health of the systems and the prioritization of the workloads.

IBM WebSphere Application Server: FFDC File Browser
The IBM WebSphere Application Server FFDC Browser enables end users to navigate in realtime directly into the FFDC logs, utilizing an organized user interface that greatly eases access to these key diagnostic files. The FFDC browser works in both Application Server Base and ND topologies and now also in Liberty. It organizes FFDCs in chronological order, by server and translates server exception summary logs into lists of exception types. The logs can be filtered by file pattern, date range and on zOS by STC number for the FFDCs of a given servant. For ND configurations, the tool can scan the topology dynamically generating links to all nodes in the cell, so that the FFDCs of each node can be viewed. The FFDC browser works on both distributed and zOS platforms.

Case study: Tuning WebSphere Application Server V7 and V8 for performance
IBM WebSphere Application Server supports an ever-growing range of applications, each with their own unique set of features, requirements, and services. Just as no two applications will use an application server in exactly the same way, no single set of tuning parameters will likely provide the best performance for any two different applications. Most applications will generally realize some performance improvement from tuning in three core areas: the JVM, thread pools, and connection pools. This article uses the Apache DayTrader Peformance Benchmark Sample application to demonstrate what you can tune and how to go about tuning it, depending on the major server components and resources that your application uses. Updated for WebSphere Application Server V8.

Innovative uses for WebSphere sMash, Part 1: Building a flexible, practical dashboard framework
When new technologies emerge -- programming languages and models in particular -- there typically follows a period where many useful "how to" articles appear to help developers get themselves started. As time passes, the guidance works its way deeper into the more advanced concepts, but it is not often that the implementation details behind an actual application of the technology is revealed. "Hello World" examples are fine for basic lessons, but as you reach the point of wanting to build something yourself, there is nothing like a real example to help provide the inspiration for that next killer application project. This article series presents three actual examples where IBM WebSphere sMash was selected and used to perform innovative and valuable tasks. These examples are all related to the operations of IBM's Green Innovation Data Center (GIDC) in Southbury, CT, USA, which has been set up both as a client briefing center and a living lab, where some of IBM's latest energy efficient hardware, software, and operational practices are being tested and developed.

Customizing with WebSphere CloudBurst, Part 4: Extending virtual images in WebSphere CloudBurst
As an IBM WebSphere CloudBurst user, you create patterns and deploy them into a private cloud. These patterns are complete representations of IBM WebSphere Application Server environments and can include many different parts, such as a deployment manager, custom node, administrative agent, and more. Each of these parts maps to a unique virtual machine, and that virtual machine is created from a virtual image. Specifically, the virtual machine is created from an IBM WebSphere Application Server Hypervisor Edition virtual image, which contains the operating system, WebSphere Application Server, and IBM HTTP Server, all pre-installed, pre-configured, and pre-tuned. However, this image does not contain other customizations or content that might be required for your specific environment.

VMM offers a specific Service Provider Interface (SPI), com.ibm.wsspi.wim.Repository, to connect VMM with user repositories that VMM does not support out of the box. This white paper explains how to implement a Repository instance as part of a custom WebSphere Portal configuration.
