  • 1.  Need help 'JavaAgent Installation for tomcat 6.0'

    Posted 03-31-2010 02:57 AM
    hi  i am just a starter and trying to deploy tomcat 6.0 with wily introscope with following versions/configurations,  1. Wily introscope (on Windows Server 2003 SP2 R2 with jdk 1.5 installed)2. Tomcat 6.0 (on same machine with same jdk version)  I am follwing documentation JavaAgent8.1.0.0.pdf 'chapter 2', tomcat portion.Now the difficult part is that i am not able to deploy java agent successfully. I wrote all code given in documentation to catalina.bat, but when i start startup.bat, i didnt get anything on 'Enterprise Manager' console.  Now i wanna ask that if there is any wrong in my deployeemnt. Am i not able to write catalina. well i dont know where i am going wrong. Is there any xml i need to create in 'tomcat home directory' that will tell him about 'wily' folder.  I will be really thankful to you.

    Can you post your catalina.bat here?   It's probably just a minor syntax issue.

    :end----->    well also i wanna mention you all my steps with tomcat agent deployement. please correct me if i am wrong.  1. unzip tomcat agent package, and copy the 'wily' folder in 'apache-tomcat' as C:\apache-tomcat\wily.2. edit 'IntroscopeAgent.profile' and give a pc name, change 'localhost' in case of remote machine.3. edit 'catalina.bat' as shown, the blue part is what wily text and the red part is what i commented.4. run apache-tomcat but there is no agent indication on Enterprise Manager console.  Before that i have tried JBoss and its deployed successfully in first attempt. Facing issue with tomcat.  Well thats all for tomcat that i have done.  Await for ur reply,Regards and thanks.  sbastine

      Have you tried un-commenting this line  ::set WILY_ARGS=-javaagent:"%WILY_HOME%\Agent.jar"    :-)

    hi  i actually miss that point but the issue is still there, Enterprise Manager is'nt able to sense any sort of tomcat agent. i uncommented it, that was a mistake but the issue is not resolved. i also wrote my deployement steps above with catalina script,  now i have a doubt that i am going to miss any point in deployement steps.ORthere is any wrong with catalina.bat.  Thanks and Regards,sbastine.

    I reread all the documentation about deploying tomcat again, but this time i choose version 5.5 of tomcat as Introscope support it. But this time also the result was same.

    Hi,  Instead of using variables, could you try specifying the values directly. Here is an example from my test system:  set JRE_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_03
    set WILY_HOME=C:\apache-tomcat-5.5.23\wily
    set JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% -javaagent:C:\apache-tomcat-5.5.23\wily\Agent.jar -Dcom.wily.introscope.agentProfile=C:\apache-tomcat-5.5.23\wily\IntroscopeAgent.profileAlso, please find attached a copy of the bat file.  Is there any log file being created? If yes, it means that the instrumentation is working and the problem is something else.  If the problem persist, attach  the listing content of the whole tomcat directory (including directories, subdirectories and files). I would like to verify that all files are in the right location.  I hope this helps,  Regards,Sergio

    tada...........................................it works.Thanks smorales, rdimar, hdavis, thanks very much helping me in resolving the issue. I just manually specify the values, not env variables and it works.  One last thing, can i make my custom probes to get metrics from JVM, is there any application or rules to define them, because the number of metrics i am getting, are very very less to my requirements. Please say something about that. is it possible?  Also 'SMORALES', as my apache deployement works, can i still send u the folder to take a look into it. Are there any other tunings that i am missing or i can improve.  Thanks and Regards,sbastine.

    Are you looking for a PBD to provide more details?There is a default one on the old community site (https://community.wilytech.com/entry!default.jspa?categoryID=488&externalID=2035&fromSearchPage=true).Are you using the Tomcat PowerPack?

    Thank for the file.  It looks like you are usng C:\apache-tomcat\wily\tomcat-typical.pbl.Try using tomcat-full.pbl.Open the IntroscopeAgent.profile then update the introscope.autoprobe.directivesFile as appropiate.  If after applying the above change you are still unable to view the extra tomcat  metrics you are  looking for,  then you need  to a) create custom pbd for those missing classes, b)  Please contact the Professional Service Team, as they can implement/develop this for you --  probably an Agent extension is required and c) if you believe they are  important metrics for any customer, then  open a product enhancement with the  support team.    Regards,  Sergio

    Hi  I believe you are refering to the "CA Introscope Services Deployment Pack for ApacheTM Tomcat Application Server Version 2.0" which supports Tomcat V4.1, V5.0, V5.5, V6.0. Please find below an brief summary from the Install guide doc:  --The Tomcat Services Deployment Pack delivers capabilities that enable Introscope to produce performance metrics for the Apache Tomcat Application Server. Metrics include the standard set of Introscope metrics (J2EE, JDBC/SQL, JVM, and others) and a customized set of Tomcat-specific metrics that include server information, DBCP/JDBC pools, sessions (per context), thread pools, and JMX in cases where the Tomcat Application Server produces JMX metrics. The Tomcat ServicesPack produces the following metrics:1. Tomcat Version2. DBCP based JDBC Connection Pools:
     a. name of the pool
     b. active connections
     c. idle connections
     d. getConnection3. Sessions
     a. statistics per context
     b. created sessions
     c. expired sessions
     d. recycled sessions
     e. passivated sessions
     f. activated sessions4. Thread Pools:
     a. current thread count (total) per thread pool
     b. idle thread count per thread pool5. JMX: (will vary by Tomcat version)
     a. Catalina
     b. Users
    For more details about Tomcat Services Deployment Pack. Please see your CA Wily Technology Division account representative.  ---
