Resource statistics

Resource statistics are collected by a broker to record performance and operating details of resources that are used by integration servers.

As a system administrator, you can use the resource statistics to ensure that your systems are using the available resources in the most efficient manner. By monitoring systems and analyzing statistical trends, you can keep system resource usage within boundaries that you consider acceptable, and help to pre-empt situations where system resources are overstretched and might become unavailable. Analysis of the data returned potentially requires specialist skills and knowledge of each resource type.

If you detect that system resources are under pressure, you can examine the statistics collected by the broker to assess whether the cause of the concern is the use of those resources by processes in IBM® Integration Bus.

You must activate statistics collection; by default, collection is not active. If you activate statistics, you might experience a minor degradation in operating performance of the broker or brokers for which you are collecting data. You can collect data on one or more integration servers, as well as all integration servers on a broker, so that you can limit the statistics gathering activity if appropriate.

Resource statistics complement the accounting and statistics data that you can collect on message flows, which are also available in the IBM Integration Explorer; for details, see Analyzing message flow performance.
