One key requirement of a microservices architecture is the ability to make information of all kinds available wherever and whenever it’s needed, without putting undue traffic on corporate and public networks. TIBCO Enterprise Message Service (EMS) is a standards-based messaging solution that can serve as the backbone of any microservices architecture by providing Java Message Service (JMS) compliant communications across a wide range of platforms and application technologies.
Dynatrace OneAgent has been able to detect TIBCO EMS processes out-of-the-box for some time already. However, so far it didn’t provide technology-specific metrics such as queue depth or number of consumers. With our new TIBCO EMS extension you can further enrich this information and see, for example, how many messages are getting stuck or how many messages went through the system. And when problems occur, you can easily drill down into the metrics of individual nodes to find the root causes of problems and potential bottlenecks.
Apply Davis AI to your TIBCO EMS servers
With the TIBCO EMS extension, Dynatrace AI incorporates relevant metrics into its analysis landscape and lets you know when the root cause of a problem relates to a metric that was acquired from TIBCO EMS. With this invaluable information you can remediate production issues much faster.
For example, you can create your own dashboard in minutes:
What you get
The TIBCO EMS extension detects multiple TIBCO EMS instances and gathers information from each of them. It can connect with or without SSL for more secure deployments. Once it’s configured, you can easily define custom alerts to notify your Operations team of any issues, such as queues filling up.
The extension captures global broker-level information under the new TIBCO EMS tab (see below).
On the Further details tab, you’ll find metrics for specific queues and topics.
