  24. 24. WebSphere Runtime Performance Advisor • The Performance and Diagnostic Advisor uses Performance Monitoring Infrastructure (PMI) data to provide recommendations for performance tuning • Running in the JVM of the application server, this advisor periodically checks for inefficient settings, and issues recommendations as standard product warning messages in the log file and GUI console Sample output: Increasing the Web Container thread pool Maximum Size to 48 might improve performance: -Average number of threads: 48 -Configured maximum pool size: 2 This alert has been issued 1 time(s) in a row. The threshold will be updated to reduce the overhead of the analysis. Tomcat and JBoss do not offer comparable capabilities
  25. 25. WebSphere Console Command Assistance Automatic capture of administrative actions and generation of scripts to be replayed later • While administrator performs actions in the admin GUI (start, stop, deploy, create, etc.) all his actions are automatically written as Jython command script for WAS • This script can be customized and executed multiple times thus saving time to create complex administrative actions and reducing the learning curve Tomcat and JBoss do not offer comparable capabilities
  26. 26. How do Red Hat customers really use JBoss AS in production? • Vast majority of JBoss customers are not using clustering • Must tolerate lower quality of services ($$$) and • Most JBoss customers purchase 3rd party management tools, monitoring tools, configuration management tools, performance profilers, etc. • 3rd party tools require license and support payments ($$$) • 3rd party tools are not always in synch with the desired version of JBoss ($$$) • 3rd party vendor viability poses risks ($$$) and • Most JBoss customers invest significant staff time to build home grown scripting frameworks for JBoss management (a combination of shell scripting and generation of JBoss XML files using XSLT, Java or other template mechanism) • Cost to develop, debug, maintain such scripts can be significant ($$$) • New versions of JBoss (major or minor) are not 100% backwards compatible, causing significant rework of home grown scripts and tools ($$$) • WAS ND provides all needed administrative tools out of the box at no extra cost ”One minute of system downtime can cost an organization anywhere from $2,500 to $10,000 per minute. Using that metric, even 99.9 data availability can cost a company $5 million a year” - The Standish Group
  27. 27. IBM Garbage Collection and Memory Visualizer (GCMV) GCMV provides analysis and views of your applications verbose gc output. GCMV uses a powerful statistical analysis engine which provides tuning recommendations in these areas: • Memory Leak Detection • Detect Java heap exhaustion and memory leaks • Detect "native" (malloc) heap exhaustion and memory leaks • Optimizing garbage collection performance • Analyze output from different gc modes (optthruput, optavgpause, gencon, balanced ) • Compare output from multiple logs – side by side • Determine gc overhead, detect long or frequent gc cycles and causes • Recommend settings to avoid long or frequent gc cycles • Recommend optimum gc policy • Fine tuning of Java heap size • Determine peak and average memory usage • Recommend Java heap settings • Flexible user interface makes it possible to carry out further analysis of the data and to "drill down" into the causes of trends and export of data into .csv or jpeg Oracle Java Mission Control (JMC) is free for development use only. JMC does provide data visualization, but it does not make tuning recommendations, nor does it compare various run results side by side. This is a major usability issue.
  28. 28. IBM WebSphere Performance Tuning Toolkit (PTT) PTT is designed to help users tune the performance of WAS using statistical technology. The toolkit collects performance data and consolidates it into a multidimensional data cube. • Find potential performance problems • PTT shows detailed status of system with easily understood charts and forms. Users can analyze the performance data from various perspectives. • PTT helps to find an error as soon as it occurs - monitor the servlet errors, transaction rollback, transaction timeout, JDBC connection timeout, thread hung, etc. • Accelerate performance tuning process • User can tune many servers in one step in a centralized view by running tuning scripts within the workbench, download or upload performance related settings manually or via script • Health Check • PTT can detect the performance decline and take actions automatically based on predefined rules. Rule engine detects the abnormal symptoms according to user defined rules (with ability to create and edit existing rules) • Operations to facilitate problems determination • PTT can generate thread dump and heap dump for the JVM, enable trace settings, extract the connection pool contents • Report engine • Online and offline analysis and reporting (generate, export and print report) Those using WebLogic, JBoss and Tomcat must spend considerably more effort finding all the right tuning variables. In these products the monitoring data is scattered across multiple locations in the Admin GUIs or worse – only available for custom JMX programs
  29. 29. IBM Monitoring and Diagnostic Tools for Java - Health Center Health Center is a diagnostic tool for monitoring the status of a running JVM. It uses a small amount of processor time and memory, and can open some log and trace files for analysis: • Monitoring a running Java application or recorded activity for offline analysis • Very low performance overhead allows to connect to and monitor a live Java application (or replay recorded activity), such as CPU, environment, IO, gc, locking, threads, memory, method tracing with timings, etc. • Save data from a monitored Java application, then reload the saved data later on, without making a live connection. You can load data from multiple files by loading one file, then appending more files. • Viewing the data collected • Displays the data collected using different views (graphical and tabular) • Triggering dumps • Trigger the JVM to generate System Dumps, Heap Dumps, and Java Dumps • Troubleshooting • The first step in troubleshooting is to view the log files that are produced by the Health Center client and agent. Then read the information provided for some of the common problems that you might encounter. • Performance hints • The Health Center agent has little effect on performance. You can improve the performance of the Health Center client by reducing the amount of data collected or displayed. • You can use the Health Center API to write your own code for manipulating Health Center data

  32. 32. Dynamic clustering IBM WAS ND 8.5.5 JBoss EAP 6.3 New node is added to a cell If node meets the dynamic selection criteria, it is automatically added to the dynamic cluster as potential host for the JVM Static cluster member must be manually defined for each participating node and manually added to the static cluster. Vertical stacking (VS) If VS is allowed, JVM process definitions are automatically created for each node Cluster members must be manually created and port conflict resolution must be manually done for each new JVM Cluster isolation Dynamic cluster can belong to different isolation groups and conflicts are automatically resolved Manual work is required to prevent conflicts between JVMs that must be isolated from each other Workload increase If workload increases for the application, new members of dynamic cluster are started to accommodate such increased workload Manual start of cluster members is required to accommodate increase in workload Workload decrease When workload drops off, members of dynamic clusters may be stopped if CPU or memory are required for other workloads. Lazy application start can be configured Manual stop of instances is required to free up resources for other workloads. Application must always be up and running to accept workload Critical load and resource shortage When overall workload is greater than the system can handle, service policies are enforced such that more important applications get priority over less important ones and SLA policies for response times are met. SLAs can be defined based on a rule set based on URI, time, user properties, IP, etc. No provision for prioritization of workload, no SLAs for applications. Typical solution is to create duplication by using dedicated hosts (physical or virtual) for each workload, which increases admin complexity, hardware and software cost Server properties Server template can be updated and changes are reflected on all members of dynamic cluster automatically Properties must be updated on each member of the static cluster manually

  37. 37. Migration issues with JBoss • Upgrade path for JBoss is manual • Manually copy configuration files and applications to new installation • Backwards compatibility broken between JBoss v4.x, v5, v6 • JBoss EAP v4, v5 and v6 releases have been disruptive and changed many properties and configuration files, scripting commands, etc. • Automated migration for WAS • Migration tool provided as part of WAS installation media • J2EE 1.4 version of DayTrader successfully migrated from WAS 6.1 to 7 using migration tool • Backwards compatibility maintained for two prior releases These issues result in increased administration costs when using JBoss because of lost productivity related to unnecessary software development.
  38. 38. WebSphere Application Server Migration Toolkit • No Charge plugins for Eclipse and RAD Rule sets for multiple source / destination combinations (e.g. WLS->WAS, etc.): (a) The tool scans Java source code, JSP files and deployment descriptors and identifies the changes required (allows for Java upgrade also). (b) The tool scans server configuration files (looking for Datasources, servers, JMS settings, etc.) and generates appropriate Liberty or WAS configuration. In most cases the toolkit is capable of making the application changes itself. After the “scan” and “conversion” are done the toolkit generates report on the results of the migration and any manual migration tasks (if required). • Free migration RedBook and developerWorks articles on migration • No Charge Migration Assessment Workshop for qualified customers Now easier then ever before to migrate your applications to WebSphere Application Server (1) Liberty Profile or (2) WAS v7, v8, v8.5, v8.5.5 WebSphere Migration Toolkit (Eclipse and RAD plugins) WAS 5.1 – 8.x WebLogic Oracle OC4J (OAS) Tomcat IBM migration tools and offerings: http://whywebsphere.com/?s=migration (a) Java, JSP source and DDs (b) Server configuration objects JBoss new

  47. 47. Flexible licensing options to suit customer needs • For applications that have uneven workloads over the year the cost of WAS could be minimized by purchasing “pay as you go” licenses for peak periods • JBoss, tc Server do not have socket, or per user pricing • tc Server, WebLogic and JBoss do not have On-Demand per day pricing • Example 1: Consider Black Friday or Cyber Money with peak workloads being 10x over any other peak in the year. With WAS you could buy licenses for that one week (using daily charge on Power for hardware and software)! This is like 90% sale on WAS! You don’t get that with IBM competitors • Example 2: Consider retail chain with 100s of locations. WAS user based license for Liberty Core or Express can be orders of magnitude less than JBoss or tc Server See additional notes about these pricing options here: http://whywebsphere.com/2013/09/26/software-costs Core (PVU) Socket 20 users Unlimited license 1 hour (cloud) 1 day (Power) 1 month (PVU) 1 month (socket) 1 year (PVU) WAS Liberty Core 28.25$ n/a 709$ BYOL 25.50$ 1.18$ n/a 11.40$ WAS Express 28.25$ n/a 709$ BYOL 25.42$ 1.18$ n/a 11.40$ WAS Base 57.00$ 14,500$ n/a 0.53$ 51.09$ 2.38$ 604$ 22.80$ WAS ND 214.00$ n/a n/a 1.11$ 191.67$ 8.90$ n/a 88.25$ Pay as you go Contact IBM Perpetual licenses

  64. 64. 70 Applications can be upgraded or downgraded without incurring outages or requiring additional hardware and license costs Validation Mode Rollout Policies Concurrent Activation Application Edition Management  Upgrade Applications without interruption to end users  Concurrently run multiple editions of an application – Automatically route users to a specific application  Multiple editions can be activated for extended periods of time  Rollout policies to switch from one edition to another without service loss  Easily update OS or WebSphere without incurring down time  Easy-to-use edition control center in admin console  Full scripting support StockTrading 1.0 StockTrading 2.0 StockTrading 3.0
  65. 65. 71 Sense and respond to problems before end users suffer an outage Comprehensive Health Policies Customizable Health Conditions Customizable Health Actions 71 Health Management  Automatically detect and handle application health problems – Without requiring administrator time, expertise, or intervention  Intelligently handle health issues in a way that will maintain continuous availability  Each health policy consists of a condition, one or more actions, and a target set of processes  Includes health policies for common application problems  Customizable health conditions and health actions
  66. 66. 72 Helps mitigate common health problems before outages occur Health Conditions • Excessive request timeouts: % of timed out requests • Excessive response time: average response time • Excessive garbage collection: % of time spent in GCs • Excessive memory: % of maximum JVM heap size • Age-based: amount of time server has been running • Memory leak: JVM heap size after garbage collection • Storm drain: significant drop in response time • Workload: total number of requests  Health policies can be defined for common server health conditions  When a health policy's condition is true, corrective action execute automatically or require approval – Notify administrator (send email or SNMP trap) – Capture diagnostics (generate heap dump, java core) – Restart server  Excessive response time means you are monitoring what matters most: your customer's experience!  Application server restarts are done in a way that prevent outages and service policy violations  Each health policy can be in supervise or automatic mode. Supervise mode is like training wheels to allow you to verify that a health policy does what you want before making it automatic. Health Management – Health Policies
  67. 67. 73  Easily allows an administrator to specify the relative importance of applications and optionally a response time goal. WebSphere then manages your applications according to this policy. – Service policies are used to define application service level goals – Allow workloads to be classified, prioritized and intelligently routed – Enables application performance monitoring – Resource adjustments are made if needed to consistently achieve service policies 73 Service Policies define the relative importance and response time goals of application services; defined in terms the end user result the customer wishes to achieve What is a Service Policy?
  68. 68. 74 Dynamic Clustering  A Dynamic Cluster is a virtual cluster of servers (JVMs) hosting the application that lives on group of nodes  What is dynamic about a dynamic cluster? – App server definitions are dynamically created or deleted based upon the node membership policy (e.g. Servers are created/deleted if a node is added to /removed from a node group) – App server definitions are automatically updated when the server template associated with the dynamic cluster is updated – App servers are started / stopped based upon current application demand & service policies
  69. 69. 75 Improves business results by ensuring priority is given to business critical applications Intelligent Routing  Requests prioritized and routed based upon administrator defined rules – Flexible policy-based routing and control  On Demand Router (ODR) is the focal point for Intelligent Routing  A routing tier that’s aware of what’s happening on the application server tier – Application server utilization, request performance, etc…  Route work to the application server that can do it best  Provide preference for higher priority requests  Integrates with Health Management and Dynamic Clustering
  70. 70. 76 Caching with WebSphere DynaCache  Patented IBM technology – used in IBM HTTP Server, EdgeServer and WebSphere Application Server  WebSphere DynaCache – fragments of pages (Servlet, JSP, Portlet, POJO) – Reduces both load and response time – Rule-based, time-based, and programmatic – techniques for invalidating cache entries – Can control external caches (WS Edge Server)  Performance gains with: – Static Fragments (header JSPs, navigation bars, etc.) – Dynamic Fragments/Pages • stock quotes, search results, ads, levels of service • personalized pages using shared information (e.g. MyNews)  Administrator controls how fragments are cached – Define rules based on Servlet, URI, request/session variables, etc.
