WLS Cluster debugging – some tips by Jon Petter Hjulstad


Some tips when debugging WLS cluster stability

Here are some settings that gave more info in logs. Set the following for the JVM:

-Dweblogic.debug.DebugServerMigration=true -Dweblogic.debug.DebugSingletonServices=true 

Change the below setting to DEBUG

 Home >Summary of Servers >AdminServer >Logging >General >Advanced >Minimum severity to log: 

enable below debugs from the weblogic admin console.

 Debug >weblogic >core 

cluster Collapse Node


Change the logging severity to Debug

 Servers-->Server_name-->Logging-->Advanced--> Standard out :Severity level:Debug 
 Log file :Severity level:Debug
