App Monitor

This software is currently BETA, use at your own risk

What is it:

AppMonitor is a command line based java utility which can be used to collect performance and usage statistics from Tuxedo installations used with PeopleSoft.  It currently inserts this data into an embedded Sqlite database for later use with the Viewing component.

Requirements:

  • Java 6+   Since you run this utility from your PeopleSoft servers you should be able to utilize the Java version provided. If you are using a tools release that ran on Java 5 or earlier (pre 8.50) then you just need to use Java 6+ to run the monitor.  The java version is not coupled to the PeopleTools version.  You can use Java 7 if you have it installed instead of Java 6 delivered with 8.52 if you wanted.
  • This tool currently needs to run on the server with Tuxedo

What has it been tested on:

  1. PeopleTools 8.49 – 8.53
