In several of my projects for Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle Fusion Middleware Environments a main topic is the monitoring.
Oracle provides with the Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control are really powerful solution to monitor Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle Fusion Middleware Environments, but the disadvantage is the huge license cost for the necessary Management Packs for Oracle WebLogic / Fusion Middleware. Moreover in many small to midrange sized environments the Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control can be an overkill and due to the license costs for the Management Packs a no-go.
There are several solutions on the market, some commercial and some open source, for Oracle WebLogic Server Monitoring.
I will show you a short test case, how to consume Oracle WebLogic Server RESTFul Management Services with the so called ELK Stack (Elasticsearch / Logstash / Kibana). How to setup the ELK stack, just check Google or the documentation on elastic.co Read the complete article here.
