ConfigNOW 4.1 RC4 now available!

By | ConfigNOW | No Comments

So, what’s new in 4.1 RC4? In terms of new functionality, RC4 is pretty non-eventful. We’re now ensuring that sensitive database passwords aren’t echoed to screen, ever. We’ve added a number of bug fixes: the run_rcu command now terminates successfully an issue with setting wls.admin.log.custom and wls.admin.httplog.enable properties has been…

Getting More Out of Oracle Tuxedo Part Three: The TMIB

By | Tuxedo | 2 Comments

So, the last time around, I talked about TXRPT, and how you can get detailed performance statistics out of Tuxedo. As the last topic in this three parter, I wanted to talk about the TMIB. If you’ll forgive the 90s flashback, the TMIB is kind of like The Matrix for Tuxedo. Everything you do, every change you make via administration tools, every command you use to bring back the current status of something, goes through the .TMIB service. It underpins everything.

Getting More Out of Oracle Tuxedo Part Two: TXRPT

By | Tuxedo | One Comment

So the last time we talked about Tuxedo, we talked about the ULOG and TMTRACE. This time around, we’re going to look at a great tool for basic performance profiling.

The great thing with all of the tools we’re looking at, just as with the stuff we looked at in the last post, is that they’re built into the Tuxedo platform. Tuxedo provides a tool out of the box that gives you log files of service execution times at millisecond precision. It’s called txrpt (as per the title for the post) and you enable it for individual servers by specifying CLOPT particular CLOPT settings for your server.

Getting More Out of Oracle Tuxedo Part One: The ULOG And TMTRACE

By | Tuxedo | 3 Comments

My last series of posts was on some more general rules of thumb around training, so I thought I’d jump next into specifics about technology – specifically, where to find useful information with Tuxedo. I had intended this to be one complete post, but due to the wonderful fractal quality of explaining things, I’ll need to break this up into a series.

For those of you unfamiliar with Tuxedo, this post is unlikely to have much interest or benefit. Before we possibly part ways though, I’ll take a moment to explain exactly what Tuxedo is, as it’s somewhat rarified knowledge nowadays, but the market seems to be pushing to make it and similar products popular again. From my less cynical vantage point, it looks at the moment like a healthy step backwards from making the solution to EVERYTHING a web service, or SOA.

Combining multiple commands in ConfigNOW

By | ConfigNOW | No Comments

One of the more common questions that we get asked is what is the best approach to combining one or more commands in ConfigNOW?

For example lets say you wanted to combine the ‘create_domain’ command, with the ‘start_wls_admin’ command to create a new command called, ‘create_and_start_domain’, which first created the domain and then started the admin server.

The simplest way to achieve this is by using a custom ANT command file through the standard command extensions approach. Check out the documentation (http://www.integraltech.com.au/confignow/confignow-documentation) if you are looking for more information on how to do this.
