What tools are available for diagnosing SOA Suite issues?
There are a variety of tools available to help you and Support diagnose SOA Suite issues in 11g but it can be confusing as to which tool is appropriate for a particular situation and what their relationships are. This blog post will introduce the various tools and attempt to clarify what each is for and how they are related. Let's first list the tools we'll be addressing:
- RDA: Remote Diagnostic Agent
- DFW: Diagnostic Framework
- Selective Tracing
- DMS: Dynamic Monitoring Service
- ODL: Oracle Diagnostic Logging
- ADR: Automatic Diagnostics Repository
- ADRCI: Automatic Diagnostics Repository Command Interpreter
- WLDF: WebLogic Diagnostic Framework
overview is not mean to be a comprehensive guide on using all of these
tools, however, extensive reference materials are included that will
provide many more details on their execution. Another point to note is
that all of these tools are applicable for Fusion Middleware as a whole
but specific products may or may not have implemented features to
leverage them. A couple of the tools have a WebLogic Scripting Tool or
'WLST' interface. WLST is a command interface for executing pre-built
functions and custom scripts against a domain. A detailed WLST tutorial
is beyond the scope of this post but you can find general information here. There are more specific resources in the below sections.
In this post when we refer to 'Enterprise Manager' or 'EM' we are referring to Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control. read the full blog post here.
