Accessing JMX for Oracle WebLogic 11g

In Oracle Utilities Application Framework V4, we use the latest Oracle WebLogic release (11g). The instructions below illustrate a way of allowing a console like jconsole to remotely monitor and manage Oracle WebLogic using the JMX Mbeans.

Typically management of Oracle WebLogic is done from Oracle Enterprise Manager or the Oracle Weblogic console application but you can also use JMX.

To access the JMX capability for Oracle WebLogic 11g, for an Oracle Utilities Application Framework based product, using a JMX console (such as jconsole) the following process needs to be performed:

  • Enable the JMX Management Server in the Oracle WebLogic console at splapp -> Configuration -> General -> Advanced Settings option. Enable both Compatibility Mbean Server Enabled and Management EJB Enabled (this enables the legacy and new JMX interface). Save the changes This change will require a restart.

  • In the startup of the Oracle WebLogic server in the $SPLSYSTEMLOGS/myserver.log (or %SPLESYSTEMLOGS%\myserver.log on Windows) you will see the BEA-149512 message indicating the Mbean servers have been started. The message will indicate the JMX URL that can be used to access the JMX Mbeans. The URL is in the format:

host - Oracle WebLogic host name
port - Oracle WebLogic port number
mbeanserver - Mbean Server to access. Valid Values:

For illustrative purposes we will use the domainruntime Mbean.

  • Ensure that you execute the splenviron[.sh] utility to set the appropriate environment variables for the desired environment.

  • Execute the following jconsole command to initiate the connection to the JMX Mbean server

jconsole -J-Djava.class.path=%JAVA_HOME%\lib\jconsole.jar;%WL_HOME%\server\lib\wljmxclient.jar


jconsole -J-Djava.class.path=$JAVA_HOME/lib/jconsole.jar:$WL_HOME/server/lib/wljmxclient.jar

  • You will see a New Connection Dialog. Specify the URL from the previous steps into the Remote process (i.,e. service:jmx:iiop...). The credentials are the credentials specified for the Oracle WebLogic console.

  • You are now able to view the JMX classes available.

Here is an example from my demonstration machine:



Sample WebLogic Statistics


Refer to the Oracle WebLogic Mbean documentation to understand the output.


Thanks Anthony. It's good to see this type of information being advertised for OUAF as JAVA monitoring (but not just jConsole) is really mandatory as OUAF implements more JAVA. From past experience, root cause analysis through monitoring tools like Wily Introscope or Oracle AD4J are a saviour in the production world. Note - With the current version of JAVA, Oracle advised that OD4J is not supported. Any recommendations on tools you have come across in use with CC&B for RCA style monitoring (i.e. not just reactive monitoring like what jconsole is used for)? Keep up the great work, Matt ps. Note - I'm not an OUAF expert, but your blogs are great to get an understanding of how things should work.

Matt thanks for the comments. AD4J should be updated soon so that is always an avenue. I have been playing with jvisualvm which is now part of Java 6. The local monitoring seems to work fine though I have been having a little inconsotency with the JMX addon connecting to anything but the basic JVM statistics. I hope to play with it a bit more in the coming weeks and may post a blog entry on how to use it.

Thanks for the response Anthony. Note - I didn't realise you posted a reply till now (I was googling AD4J and Weblogic and this came up) but just a point that I thought I would get emailed when an update was made to this discussion. Maybe a feature to highlight to the Oracle community owner? Cheers, Matt

This circle of men and women that make the commenting rounds have a range beliefs, a few of which are extremely powerful, but some of which I’m completely sure are precise.

Thus politically appropriate. MY PARTNER AND I interpreted the record as it not necessarily staying a big deal laughing during a number of colorings. Exactly why cannot most of us point out anything currently without having that becoming hateful, racist, sexist and so forth ....

This enables you to inquire why would YouTube implant such a Abbusive system ? and not simply make any view count as a view. The reason is back whenever this system was integrated men and women use to spam views. Continually refreshing the pages to make their view count higher. So YouTube decided  to cut down by generating this system a rather better, Now YouTube solely counts Actual Views.

How, for god's sake may a person produce freely available energy? It is towards the very fundamental law of thermodynamics that is "energy can't be generated or destroyed, only modified in form." So, the promoter of above pointed out DIY power product is claiming a thing regarded as out of the question inside recognized physical boundaries.

Though I was a bit skeptical, I used to be absolutely curious about scaling down my power bill. So I went forward and picked up Earth4Energy just to see what it is actually all about.

There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.

The Earth4Energy book has seventy one pages of by-instructions. All the elements needed, may be found at your community ironmongery shop for under $ There's also by video directions that actually take your hand, and take you step-by-step through the whole process. I am far from being a technological person and I normally get very frustrated working on complicating things. Not only was this easy, but it was moreover kind of fun. It is best have witnessed the faces of my neighbors when I used to be finished!

Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

Hi Anthony Shorten,

We are using SPLVERSION=V2.2.0 SP16. We are seeing issues with our RMB batch process (cobjrun) and I was wondering is there any tool that we can use to monitor the cobjrun process. Please advise.
