Recap of Mobile Monitoring for Oracle WebLogic Server presentation

Our esteemed consultants Ahmed Aboulnaga (@Ahmed_Aboulnaga) and Harold Dost (@hdost) presented Oracle WebLogic Server: Remote Monitoring and Management at last night's monthly SEMOP meeting.

The South East Michigan Oracle Professionals (SEMOP) meets once a month in Livonia, Michigan, and venue and catering is sponsored by Secure-24.

The presentation revolved around Oracle WebLogic Server 12c monitoring and management and discussed topics such as OEM and RESTful Management Services, which allows anyone to query and monitor numerous Oracle WebLogic Server metrics from a multitude of programming languages, including mobiles devices. Ahmed and Harold also introduce a tool that Raastech has developed that supports mobile monitoring, management, and alerting of Oracle WebLogic Server and shared the architecture and design with our SEMOP colleagues.

The basic findings of the presentation included:
  • WebLogic Server can be monitored manually (via consoles such as the WebLogic Admin Console)
  • WebLogic Server can be monitored automatically (via tools such as OEM Cloud Control)
  • WebLogic Server can be monitored via custom scripts (using WLST, DMS Spy Servlet, RESTful Management Services)
  • OEM Cloud Control is the ideal tool of choice for monitoring WebLogic Server, Oracle, and non-Oracle products
  • The DMS Spy Servlet is a hidden gem which can be accessed at http://adminhost:7001/dms/Spy and provides real-time metrics via browser or command line
  • RESTful Management Services, introduced in WebLogic Server 11g, is limited to retrieving metrics for Servers, Clusters, Applications, and Data Sources
  • Raastech has developed the world's only mobile monitoring and management solution for Oracle Fusion Middleware; more information can be found at
