Configuring WebLogic monitoring

The Monitoring Agent for WebLogic provides you with a central point of monitoring for the health, availability, and performance of your WebLogic server environment. The agent displays a comprehensive set of metrics to help you make informed decisions about your WebLogic resources, including Java® virtual machines (JVMs), Java® messaging service (JMS), Java® Database Connectivity (JDBC).

About this task

The WebLogic agent is both a multiple instance agent and also a multiple subnode agent. You can create one agent instance with multiple subnodes – one for each WebLogic server, or you can create an agent instance for each WebLogic server with one subnode for that server. Or you can create a combination of each type of configuration. After you configure agent instances, you must start each agent instance manually.


  1. To configure the agent on Windows® systems, use the IBM Performance Management window or the silent response file with the agent configuration batch file.

  2. To configure the agent on Linux® and UNIX® systems, run the agent configuration script and respond to prompts, or use the silent response file.

What to do next

Log in to the IBM Cloud Pak console to view monitoring data.

If you are unable to view the data in the agent dashboards, first check the server connection logs and then the data provider logs. The default paths to these logs are as follows.
