Advanced WebLogic Monitoring: Develop JMX MBeans and Automate with WLSDM Metric Actions

clip_image002This tutorial is prepared for Advanced WebLogic Administration and Automation. Setting up internal JMX MBean objects are the “best and ultimate practice” for applications’ monitoring infrastructure.

Outline:

  1. How to develop and register JMX MBean to Oracle WebLogic Server?
  2. How to check SERVER disk space by using JMX MBean on WebLogic?
  3. How to define WLSDM User Defined Metric Actions?
  4. How to delete or move Application logs automatically when given threshold exceeds for disc usage on SERVER?

Problem: The application which is deployed to Oracle WebLogic Server 12c (12.1.3) is increasing server disk space continuously and in peak times it makes the server disk usage 100%. Meanwhile, the service goes down and causes the service down-time.

Solution:

  1. Develop JMX MBeans which check server disk usage (JMX StandardMBean)
  2. Create alarm and notify when the disk usage is over 95% (JMX MBean Monitoring – UsedDiskSpace)
  3. For more information Read the complete article here & YoutTube (Video Tutorial) & Sample Java Source Code Project

WebLogic12c with t3s (SSL) secure protocol and the JMX client by Jay SenSharma

clip_image002As part of this article we will see how to use the “t3s” SSL based secure protocol to interact with WebLogic 12.2.1. We will be developing a simple MBean client which will access sime of the MBeans present on weblogic over the SSL. We are going to implement One Way SSL for this demo. With one-way SSL, the server must present a certificate to the client, but the client is not required to present a certificate to the server. The client must authenticate the server, but the server accepts a connection from any client. One-way SSL is common on the Internet where customers want to create secure connections before they share personal data. Often, clients will also use SSL to log on in order that the server can authenticate them.

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) provides secure connections by allowing two applications connecting over a network to authenticate each other’s identity and by encrypting the data exchaoged between the applications. Authentication allows a server and optionally a client to verify the identity of the application on the other end of a network connection. Encryption makes data transmitted over the network intelligible only to the intended recipient.

What this demo is about ?

As part of this demo we will see how to use implement One way SSL on weblogic so that a Client can interact with it using https/t3s in a secure manner.

1. How to configure the “CustomIdentityAndJavaStandardTrust” on weblogic, In a complete automated way using WLST scripting.

2. How to configure the SSL port on WebLogic 12.2.1 using WLST.

3. How to create Server side Keystore and Client side truststore.

4. Running a simple MBean Client which will use “t3s” protocol to access/query the MBeans which are present on WLS server.

5. Troubleshooting some very common issues which users might encounter while implementing SSL on WebLogic 12c.

Creating Keystores and Truststore.

Step-1). Lets create a simple keystore which will be deployed on the WLS side and then we will be exporting the public key from that which will be imported on the Client side truststore. In order to simplify the keystore and truststore creation and importing / exporting the certificates, We will be writing a very simple shell script. Please change the store password and keystore/truststore file name based on your choice.
Create a shell script “createKeyStore.sh” somewhere in your filesystem as following:

Using the Weblogic External Listen Address to support Network Address Translation (NAT) firewalls by Jan van Zoggel

clip_image001

When trying to connect or deploy from JDeveloper 12.2.2 to our Oracle Fusion Middleware 12.2.1 domain in the Amazon EC cloud I keep having connection problems. Contacting the consoles is not a problem, however extending the IDE Connection results in this error:

t3://127.0.0.1:7011: [RJVM:000575]Destination 127.0.0.1, 7011 unreachable.; nested exception is:
java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect; [RJVM:000576]No available router to destination.; nested exception is: java.rmi.ConnectException: [RJVM:000576]No available router to destination.Dec 08, 2015 9:50:35 AM oracle.tip.tools.ide.soabrowser.LogUtil logStackTrace

And deploying an artifact to the server results the same

Weblogic configuration

I couldn’t find anything regarding the error on Oracle Support, but luckily my collegue Daljit Singh had the answer. Since the Amazon EC2 uses a public IP (which we use to connect to the admin server) the internal passthrough to the Managed Servers fails. To solve this we should use the Weblogic “external listen address” configuration. The external listen address and port are used to support Network Address Translation (NAT) firewalls. These should match the IP address or DNS name that clients use to access application on the server.

Go to the Weblogic console -> Environment -> Servers -> Managed Server -> Configuration -> General -> Advanced

Make sure the public ip-adres is stored in the External Listen Address here Read the complete article here.

CERN IT-DB group develops a new WebLogic Command Line Interface tool for CERN Java Middleware Services by Konrad Aleksand

Introduction

clip_image002CERN WebLogic CLI tool[1] is written in Python. A project is being realized in an object oriented way to contribute towards flexibility, modularity and legibility of a solution and the modules of the system are designed to maximize end-user productivity. It is a comprehensive solution using WebLogic RESTful management services and providing a simple way of interacting with a user and possibility of integration with third party systems. The goal of the system is to provide a set of standardized functionality for managing resources shared in a distributed environment composed of hundreds WebLogic servers. Among them there are significant and business-critical applications. The product hides administration mechanisms by removing the complexity of the REST interface and shares user friendly abstraction layer. The system together with Oracle WebLogic Server follows the client- server architectural style.

The power of the REST

REST is an architecture style for designing Web services that focus on a server's resources. It is a lightweight alternative to Web Services (SOAP, WSDL) or RPC. REST interfaces can be used by any programming language. One of the key characteristics of a RESTful service is that communication is stateless. It means that a complete request doesn't require the server to retrieve any kind of application context or state. Each request from any client contains just essential information necessary to service the request, and session state should be held in the client side. Regarding managing Oracle WebLogic Server, REST management API is faster than WebLogic Scripting Tool.

Abstractions in a RESTful system:

  • Server resources
  • Resource representations
  • Actions on server resources

What is a RESTful resource? It is anything that can be accessed within the scope of designed REST service over the Web. Representation of a resource is sent back from server to client as a result of the request. Server resource cannot be sent or received, only its representation can be sent. Representations can be of a various forms, such as JSON, XML or even plain text. Actions are used to operate on server resources. RESTful clients use HTTP requests for all four CRUD (Create / Read / Update / Delete) operations. The key features[2] are presented below.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly - WebLogic API

Although REST is very simple, lightweight and fast, there are some requests that might make a tremendous burden on WebLogic Server. For instance, if the domain is full of logs, queries for all of them may take longer. Likewise, starting a laden server can put the user's patience to the test. REST lightness needs to be separated from the operation weight. REST requests are hitting the target very quickly, but demanded action may take much more time.

Another downside is an impression that WebLogic REST API[3] is not complete. The API does not address yet full management functionality for WebLogic Server. Let me give an example. It is still impossible to create a domain, a cluster or even a server with the API - here it is still necessary to use a more traditional way, for example Administration Console.

Connect to WebLogic Embedded LDAP using LDAP Browser by Chandresh Patel

clip_image002WebLogic console allows you to configure users and groups in it’s Embedded LDAP server, but at times you may want to connect to WebLogic’s Embedded LDAP server using external LDAP browser or application. Here is how you can do this.

Configure credential for Embedded LDAP as shown in Screenshot below. More instructions are available at http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17904_01/web.1111/e13707/ldap.htm#SECMG330.

In this blog entry, I will show how to use Apache Directroy Studio to connect to Embedded LDAP server.

Hostname will listen address for AdminServer and Port will listen port for AdminServer. Note that there is no separate process for WebLogic Embedded LDAP and it uses same connection details as you would use to access WebLogic console. Click Check Network Parameter to validate information. Read the complete article here.
