Enhanced Service Monitoring in R12.ATG_PF.B.delta.3

Integrated SOA Gateway provides enhanced service monitoring capabilities through it's SOA Monitor in Oracle Applications Technology 12.1.3 Product Family Release Update Pack (R12.ATG_PF.B.delta.3) as listed in the earlier post.

Audit vs Monitor

In R12.ATG_PF.B.delta.2 and earlier, Integrated SOA Gateway provided service monitoring and auditing as one single feature configurable through Turn Off/On Web Service Monitoring button on the SOA Monitor main page.
  • If Web Service monitoring was turned on, the SOA Provider would persist the instance details along with payload
  • if Web Service monitor was turned off, the SOA Provider would not persist any details about the request it executed and hence there were no details of what was executed.
If Web Service monitoring was turned off, there was no way to track the requests executed by the SOA Provider.

In R12.ATG_PF.B.delta.3, Integrated SOA Gateway service monitoring and auditing are available as separate features.
  • Monitoring is performed by the SOA Provider for every request it executes. An unique Instance ID is generated to track each request executed by the SOA Provider. Monitoring involves storing basic request details such as SOA Header details, client information, interface and method details and so on except the request payload.
This gives utmost flexibility for Administrator to track services executed by the SOA Provider on a daily basis, review execution patterns from specific clients and gather statistics about most executed services on daily basis.
  • Auditing is now configured through Turn Off/On Audit button. If Audit is turned on, along with monitoring, the request payload is also persisted.

New Search Page


SOA Monitor search page now has a fresh new look with intuitive search options. Search criteria highlights.
  • Instance ID - Unique identifier for the request if known. All other search parameters will be ignored
  • Interaction Architecture - Request message exchange pattern such as Synchronous Request-only or Synchronous Request-Response
  • Request Received - Time frame the request was received
  • Web Service Name - IREP Interface Name
  • Operation Name - IREP Interface Method Name
  • Request Status - Receive, In Process, Failure, Success

The search results table is also updated to show relevant information for each matching request. The table now displays Instance ID, Web Service name and method name with link to IREP details page, date the request was received and responded, Status, Username, Client IP address, request details and request log if available.

Merged Details Page


Request and Response details are now shown in the same page. Details about request execution error are displayed in the Request section.

Link to view the payload for a request or response is shown only if audit was enabled at the time the SOA Provider serviced that request.

Obsolete Profile Options

Two SOA Monitor profile options are obsolete in R12.ATG_PF.B.delta.3 since the monitor does not depend on these anymore to persist run-time data to the database.
  • SOA: Maximum Number of Requests - Responses to Buffer
  • SOA: Maximum Monitor Save Interval (Seconds)
The request details are persisted on a per-request basis without any buffering so the records are available in the monitor immediately.
