ITCAM for WebSphere is an application management tool that helps maintain the
availability and performance of on demand applications. It helps you quickly
pinpoint, in real time, the source of bottlenecks in application code, server
resources, and external system dependencies. This product also provides
detailed reports that you can use to enhance the performance of your
applications. ITCAM for WebSphere provides in-depth WebSphere-based
application performance analysis and tracing facilities.

ITCAM for WebSphere enables multiple levels of analysis in order to achieve a
complete view of the application, depending on the need. From the
production-level monitoring through detailed heap and method debugging, it digs

into SQL performance analysis without the need for database monitors. It can
provide SQL information and calls that were made through Java Database
Connectivity (JDBC™). ITCAM for WebSphere provides a composite status
correlation for transactions that use CICS® or IMS™ as the back-end system.

ITCAM for WebSphere V6.0 evolved from WebSphere Studio Application Monitor
and OMEGAMON® XE for WebSphere. ITCAM for WebSphere observes and
reports on the health of J2EE™-based applications. It tracks the progress of
applications as they traverse through J2EE application servers, middleware
adapters and transports, and database calls, and on to back-end systems such
as CICS or IMS to extract business data or to invoke mainframe business
processes. The tracking of applications produces request traces, where the
events in a request’s life are recorded and stored in a monitoring repository
database. ITCAM for WebSphere captures the CPU and the elapsed internal
times when events are called and when they are exited, measuring as far down
as the CPU times consumed and the elapsed internal times charged to individual
methods in J2EE classes. The methods or events taking the most time are
marked as an application’s parts that deserve attention for runtime improvement
studies and code optimizations.

ITCAM for WebSphere does not need modification of any application code. Java
Virtual Machine Tool Interface (JVMTI) interfaces and primitives, along with
WebSphere Performance Management Interface (PMI) and z/OS System
Measurement Facility (SMF) 120 records, are ITCAM for WebSphere’s principal
data sources. The monitoring data is collected and analyzed to offer a wealth of
information about the health of J2EE applications and their servers.

Many system-level performance metrics are collected and reported about J2EE
application servers. The status of the servers and their resources (particularly at
vital checkpoints such as CPU utilization), memory usage, and the status of
internal components such as database connection pools, JVM™ thread pools,
EJB™ usage, and request processing statistics can be very useful and important
for locating real-time problems with J2EE applications. ITCAM for WebSphere
brings attention to these critical indicators with real-time, graphical displays of
their values and their trends over time.
