What is it:
DataViewer, or what was called WeblogicViewer previously, is now a combination of tools. It is the companion piece to the Weblogic and Tuxedo Monitoring programs used to open the Sqlite databases and view the data within them. It also has stand alone functionality now such as Real Time Weblogic Monitoring and Access Log parsing. Screen shots of the newest version are on the Screen Shots page along with additional information.
- Java 8 for the new WV3
- Java 7 for the older WV213 version
How to use DataViewer version 3:
- Download the newest version (WV3.zip) from the Downloads Page
- Unzip the file to a location such as D:\WV3 or /opt/apps/utils/WV
- Run java -jar WV3.jar
- A sample_run.bat file is included which provides additional command line options for when using SSL or TS3 protocol for the Real Time Weblogic function
- To load data from the monitor files select the last tab named Original App and then use the Menu File -> Open option to locate the .db file from the WeblogicMonitor or the AppMonitor
How to use the Real Time Weblogic monitoring:
- The Real Time monitor uses the same connection methods as the normal monitoring app. Therefore you must generate a wlfullclient.jar file. If you are using TS3, you also need crypto.jar and wlcipher.jar in addition to a keystore containing the certificate chain. For instructions on this see the WeblogicMonitor page.
- Once the additional libraries are in place, specify the server name, port, PIA server name, protocol, and a polling interval in milliseconds on the Weblogic RT tab like so.
- Pressing start will prompt you for the admin console credentials to use to make the connection.
- Press Submit to begin monitoring
- The charts will display the last 50 polling points. Once you press stop, if more than 50 data points have been collected a slider will be available to review all points from start to finish 50 at a time.
How to use the Access Log Parser:
- Select the Access Log Parser tab.
- Choose a File format:
- Weblogic Default: This option does not include a time taken so really only measure component hit counts.
- IIS Default: Most people would never use this, if you have a need, you would know.
- Custom: A modified Weblogic format. Fields are: c-ip date time cs-method cs-uri sc-status bytes time-taken. You can collection additional data in this option as long as the first 8 fields are as indicated above
- I hope to add a method to allow users to specify their fields in any order in the future.
- Use the browse button to select your access log file.
- Press the Process button and wait.
- You will be presented with some Top 5 lists which have context menus and some limit charting options at the moment.
How to use WeblogicViewer 2.13:
- I recommend getting the new version, however, if you need the older version, the last Viewer 2.13 version is still available for download from the Downloads Page
- If running on Windows, download the self contained 32-bit version which includes all the required Java runtime files bundled. This is convenient if you are using a system where you may not be able to install JavaFX or update your existing Java installation.
- If running on Linux or Windows and you already run the most recent Java 7 version (which now includes JavaFX) you can download the WeblogicViewer application only
- Unzip the file to a location such as D:\WV2 or /opt/apps/utils/WV
- If you downloaded the self contained version, run the WV213.exe file
- If you downloaded the application only (no runtime) run java -jar WV3.jar
- User File -> Open option to locate the .db file from the WeblogicMonitor or AppMonitor
