About monitoring applications and application servers

As a tenant, you can use iWorkflow™ to monitor the health statistics and performance of applications and servers. In addition to the application itself, the health of an application is influenced by its associated objects, including:

  • Servers that host applications
  • Virtual servers that manage traffic to applications
  • Clouds

Monitoring applications

Before you can monitor an application, you must first deploy it.
Monitoring statistics and performance details for applications and associated network objects provides you with the information you need to make resource management decisions. The application statistics are collected by the managed BIG-IP® device and include various network statistic, such as connections, bits per second, and so forth. The performance data displays the application performance trend over a period of time.
  1. Log in to iWorkflow™ with the administrator user name and password and select the Cloud component.
  2. On the Services header, click the gear icon next to the name of the application that you want to monitor.
    The panel expands to display the application's properties.
  3. To view the statistics, click Statistics.
    The statistics display and all of the associated objects for that application are highlighted in the applicable panels.
  4. To view the performance, click Performance
    The performance graph displays.

Monitoring application servers

A cloud provider must have discovered, or you must have added, an application server before you can monitor it.

Monitoring health and performance statistics for your application servers provides you useful information about the health and usage for your resources. This information helps you decide when to increase or decrease resources to support your application requirements.

  1. Log in to iWorkflow™ with the administrator user name and password and select the Cloud component.
  2. On the Servers panel, click the gear icon next to the name of the application server that you want to monitor.
    The panel expands to display the application monitor's properties.
  3. To view the statistics, click Statistics.
    The statistics display and all of the associated objects for that application are highlighted in the applicable panels.
  4. To view the performance, click Performance
    The performance graph displays.

Viewing activity for cloud resources

Viewing activity for dynamic cloud resources gives you insight into how cloud resources are expanding to address increased traffic to applications.
  1. To view the resource associated with a particular activity, click the activity located on the Activities panel.
    The associated objects are highlighted in the relevant panels.
