Five Keys for Performance Management of Oracle Forms and E-Business Suite

2,600

Published on

Today's APM tools do not provide sufficient capabilities to perform real end user monitoring of Oracle applications. While these tools can track basic performance data, most solutions do not cover the entire Oracle E-Business Suite technology stack and it can be challenging to acquire the in-depth visibility needed to properly manage your application's performance.

Join us for a webinar where we will showcase solutions for application support engineers, application owners, QA engineers, Oracle Forms developers and EBS Integrators. Topics include how to:

Isolate problems before end users experience them
Gain visibility into the potential source of bottlenecks in Oracle components
Reduce the risk and overall time to rollout for new applications, Oracle Forms migrations and EBS upgrades
Analyze stress tests to identify, isolate and resolve scalability issues before rolling out to production
Monitor your end user experience with both real-time and historical performance metrics

Speakers: Mia Urman, CEO of OraPlayer Ltd. and Frank Days, VP of Marketing, Correlsense

  5. 5. Guest Speaker:Mia Urman, CEO, Oraplayer• Sr. Support Analyst and Product Manager of Forms and ADF at Oracle for 7 years• 13+ years supporting, training and consulting for Oracle Tools• Founder of Qesem Consulting. Clients include: Mastercard, Bank of Israel, IBM and Motorola• CEO of OraPlayer a leading provider of Oracle Forms to SOA integration and mobile• Leader OUG Oracle Developer user group
  6. 6. BACKGROUND

  9. 9. THE MONITORING CHALLENGE
  10. 10. Forms Complex Multi-Tier Architecture• Need to identify single sessions across all tiers• Hard to effectively identify the degrading element
  11. 11. Users Can Rarely Describe Problems• “It’s not working”, “It’s slow”, “It’s stuck”• What did the user do when the problem occurred?• Which component is causing the problem?
  12. 12. System Migrations/Upgrades areComplex• Finding problems before move to production• Proving that performance has not degraded• Getting to the root cause of the problem fast?
  13. 13. Forms Users Unique Needs• Out of the box, easy solution – No need to code or do manual mapping• Real-end user monitoring – Get business context logs - Form item names and labels – Complete, real-time end-user experience• Prevent problems and resolve them fast – Get notifications/alerts of problems before users report them – Allow system managers to determine and improve SLA – Identify problems and reduce time to solutions• Reduce risk in monitoring / upgrade projects – Obtain monitoring data without a performance penalty – Analyze stress tests across all components before rolling out
  14. 14. THE FIVE KEYS
  15. 15. 1. Track All Requests Through AllHops• Track all user requests through all components (not just Java and .Net)• Track and meter single end user across entire stack• Apache, OC4J, Forms Runtime and Oracle Database Applet Apache OC4J Forms Runtime Specific SQLs
  16. 16. 2. Manage User Experience withMeaningful Transaction Names
  17. 17. 3. Understand How Components Interact• Auto-detected• Real-time• Without manual modeling
  18. 18. 4. Use Performance Analytics• Isolate problems in a click• Optimize bottlenecks• Manage rollouts / migrations TODO – ADD SCREENSHOT
  19. 19. 5. Keep Your Stakeholders Aware• Regular performance reports
  20. 20. MONITORING FORMS APPLICATIONS
  21. 21. Limitations of Existing Solutions• Java/.Net – no support for Forms runtime processes• No end-user experience - neglect client-side layer• Require manual mapping or customized code• Don’t track user session and requests across all tiers• Overhead: -Affect server performance -threaten server instability• Lack of transaction-aware analytics• Incoherent information, relying on monitoring logs
  22. 22. SharePath for Oracle Forms/EBS• Goes beyond Java/.Net with Forms runtime coverage – Broadest coverage: rich clients, Forms applet, C++, ESBs … – Supports the most complex, heterogeneous architectures• Dashboards for operations, support, and engineering• No application code changes necessary• Auto-detects transaction paths
  23. 23. Summary• Performance is crucial in today’s IT landscape• Forms and EBS bring performance and migration challenges• SharePath is the only transaction management offering for Forms based/EBS
