Very soon we will be announcing certification of WebLogic Server on Kubernetes. To give our users the best possible experience when running WebLogic domains in Docker/Kubernetes environments, we have developed the WebLogic Monitoring Exporter. This new tool exposes WebLogic Server metrics that can be read and collected by monitoring tools such as Prometheus, and displayed in Grafana. We are also making the WebLogic Monitoring Exporter tool available in open source here, which will allow our community to contribute to this project and be part of enhancing it.
As it runs, WebLogic Server generates a rich set of metrics and runtime state information that provides detailed performance and diagnostic data about the servers, clusters, applications, and other resources that are running in a WebLogic domain. The WebLogic Monitoring Exporter enables administrators of Kubernetes environments to easily monitor this data using tools like Prometheus and Grafana, tools that are commonly used for monitoring Kubernetes environments.
For more information on the design and implementation of the WebLogic Monitoring Exporter, see Exporting Metrics from WebLogic Server. For more information on Using Prometheus and Grafana to Monitor WebLogic Server on Kubernetes see WebLogic on Kubernetes monitoring using Prometheus and Grafana.
Stay tuned for more information about WebLogic Server certification on Kubernetes. Our intent is to enable you to run WebLogic Server in Kubernetes, to run WebLogic Server in the Kubernetes-based Oracle Container Engine, and to enable integration of WebLogic Server applications with applications developed on our Kubernetes-based Container Native Application Development Platform.
