SMF and WebSphere
By dkumar on Jun 21, 2007
During discussion with one of the customer we found that there are interests around SMF for WebSphere. Taking this opportunity my friend Albert Leigh has already posted a head start and important link to get you started.
Basic idea of SMF has been presented and it may need cover the complex scenario which I think wouldn't be a big deal to follow as long as you know what are the activity and its dependencies are to get started.
Specially the thing are much straightforward when you plan to do things with standalone application server. The complexity arises when you go to multiple instance scenarios and you have clustering/distribution enabled. In these cases you have to take care of order in which you start the app eg. Node Manager must be started before you try to start the app server and thing like that.
Same goes for the Web Server which has been configured through the admin interface and eligible to get started or stopped from single point of management.
Let us know what else would you like to be done using SMF which is not just easy enough for yourself to do it. We will try to put the script to help you out.
