Viewing current performance activity
You can view the current performance activity of a server using the Tivoli® Performance Viewer in the administrative console.

A Tivoli Performance Viewer console panel is displayed, providing a navigation tree on one side and a view of real-time data on the current performance activity of a server on the other side.
- Under Server, click the name of the server whose activity you want to monitor. Clicking on the name starts the monitoring for the server and displays the activity page for the server.
- Select the check box for the server whose activity you want to monitor, and click Start Monitoring.To start monitoring multiple servers at the same time, select the servers and click Start Monitoring.
- From the navigation tree, select the server activity data that you want to view.
Option Description Advisor Use the Performance Advisor to examine various data while your application is running. The Performance Advisor provides advice to help tune systems for optimal performance and gives recommendations on inefficient settings by using collected PMI data. Settings Configure user and logging settings for Tivoli Performance Viewer. These settings can affect the performance of your application server. Summary Reports View summary reports on servlets, enterprise beans (EJBs), EJB methods, connections pools and thread pools in WebSphere Application Server. Performance Modules View performance modules that provide graphics and charts of various performance data on system resources such as CPU utilization, on WebSphere pools and queues such as database connection pools, and on customer application data such as servlet response time. In addition to providing a viewer for performance data, Tivoli Performance Viewer enables you to view data for other products or customer applications that have implemented custom PMI.
