Our company is reviewing our options for monitoring our webMethods integration components running on Enterprise server 5.0.1 and Integration server 4.6.
What are people using for automated notification ? Any of the following ?: 1) Custom scripts 2) webMethods Manager 3) BMC Patrol using webMethods module 4) SNMP 5) No monitoring…wait for users to start screaming 6) Other
We know that webMethods Manager will do the job but it cost quite a few pesos. The webMethods module for BMC Patrol will also work…but again this costs a few bucks.
I’m interested to hear what other webMethods (IS & ES) customers use for monitoring the infrastructure and integrations. I know some of the client tools (eg. Enterprise Manager) can show statistics on the platform, however we want automated notification if a broker fails, or an adapter fails, etc… We don’t want our support people to have to sit in front of a client tool and keep pressing enter or refresh.
Comments ? Thoughts ? Please…
