IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale (WXS) Transaction Call Monitoring

Recently a client wanted to monitor their large scale IBM WebSphere Commerce Server and eXtreme Scale application with dynaTrace.  The application has a web server based front end which directs requests to a large number of application servers running WCS and WXS.  With the dynaTrace Java Agent, we were able to monitor both the WCS and WXS JVMs.  However, out of the box (with dynaTrace 4.2.0 at least) we were not able to completely follow transactions from WCS Agents to WXS Agents.  Here is a document that outlines the configuration we used to monitor these WXS transaction calls along with the custom Sensor Pack.

dynaTrace IBM_WXS_RMI Documentation.pdf

Please note that this was analyzed, designed, and developed for this particular client environment - use the documentation as a reference and the Sensor Pack at your own risk

I added the methods needed to capture message timing for clients using the XIO protocol. comdynatracecustomtpcrmiibm-wxs-rmi.zip

Nice one TPC. There may be another local Minnie customer that will use this shortly.

Thanks for sharing, very clean and well made document! Should be helpful in future WXS implementations
