Managing a Coherence Data Grid
One of the challenges with Coherence has been the limited management tools. There is a built support for cluster wide JMX, but this only provides a limited management capability and requires a JMX console, see documentation for more details. Using a JMX console is fine but it isolates the management of the cluster from other management tools, such as database and web servers. Last month Oracle released a new Enterprise Manager pack, the Oracle Management Pack for Oracle Coherence. This pack enables you to manage and monitor Coherence from within Enterprise Manager. If you are running Coherence as part of WebLogic Suite or WebLogic Application Grid then the management pack is included in those suites. If you are running a standalone Coherence (standard, enterprise or grid edition) then the management pack is available separately. So go and give it a try by downloading Enterprise Manager 10.2.0.5.
