Spinning-up a Coherence Cluster with Weblogic Scripting (WLST)

David Felcey has completed a great post on how to setup a Coherence Cluster using WLST with WebLogic Server 12.1.3 and Managed Coherence Servers. This shows how creation of Coherence clusters within a WebLogic Server environment can easily be scripted and automated.

See Dave’s Blog at https://blogs.oracle.com/felcey/entry/creating_and_staring_a_coherence the full details.

Nice work Dave!

Updated Coherence JVisualVM Plugin in Latest Coherence Patch

We have just released Coherence 12.1.3.0.1, (Patch 20164069) which is the first patch set on top of 12.1.3.  As part of this patch there are a few updates to the Coherence JVisualVM Plugin that improve the range of functionality that we can support, a couple of UI tweaks as well as addressing an issue monitoring Coherence clusters in WebLogic Server environments.

The feature highlights are:

  1. Added a tab for displaying information about Elastic Data
  2. Added a tab for display JCache Information when using Coherence to store JCache (JSR-107) caches
  3. Additional metrics to track partitions stats graphically for a service
  4. Displaying extra details for some data via drill down.

Displaying Elastic Data Information 

We have added support for displaying a tab when you are using Elastic Data. We support clusters running 3.7.x and above and display information about both the Ram Journal and Flash Journal usage as well as the number of compactions taking place.

Elastic Data Tab

Displaying JCache Information

We’ve also added support for display information about JCache when you are using Coherence to store JCache caches. We show both configuration and statistics information.

Additional Partition Metrics

Now when you select a service in the ‘Services’ tab, you can see a ‘Partition’ sub-tab that shows a graphical representation of partition related information. The items we are showing are partition counts related to Pending, Unbalanced, Vulnerable and Endangered partitions. This can be useful when you are wanting to see whats happening to a services partitions over a period of time.

More Details on Drill Down

On the Member, Service Detail and Cache Detail tables we now support a ‘Drill Down’, via right click to display detailed JMX information which is useful for more detailed diagnostics.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
