New in troubleshooting in Maximo Asset Management 7.6

Maximo® Management Interface (MMI) is a REST API that enables HTTP-based clients to access information that is related to the current state of a Maximo deployment.

MMI provides information on the current state of the deployment

The state of a Maximo deployment can consist of the Maximo server processes that are part of the deployment, potentially in a multi-clustered setup, and information about resources, such as the Java™ (JVM), memory, operating system, application server, and JVM threads. MMI uses JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) as the data format for representing the collected state information. New informationLearn more about Maximo Management Interface

Configure custom log messages to reduce the time that is required to resolve bugs

You specify start and end messages that are written to the log files and the content between these messages contains the information that you require to resolve the issue. By identifying a specific section of the log file, you can reduce the time that you spend resolving an issue. New informationLearn more about configuring custom log messages

In-session logging makes debugging easier and prevents performance issues

With in-session logging, also known as thread-based logging, you can configure logging for an individual user so that other users are not affected by performance issues. When you configure in-session logging, you can list the logs that you want to enable. The scope is set to root loggers, such as maximo.sql and maximo.integrate. The contexts that you can enable include OSLC or REST calls, MIF Web services and XML or HTTP calls, UI sessions, cron tasks, and MIF MDBs. The logs are generated in a separate file that is created under the working directory of the application. Logs must be manually purged to free up disk space.
