For example: Ctrl+C. data loss or corruption if certain steps are taken or not taken. Portlets are mini-applications that run in a portal. The tip icon indicates an idea that could be useful. For example: MyCommand pathname Key combinations Key name separated by a plus sign indicate keys pressed simultaneously. to indicate what a user types. an additional action required only in certain circumstances. for example. The note icon indicates information that is of special interest or importance. TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . The warning icon indicates the potential for a damaging situation. for example. to indicate the default parameter for a command. For example: Type admin. to indicate the parts of the sample that are of particular interest. for example. Key names separated by a comma and space indicate keys pressed one after the other. Ctrl+Q. a way to apply the information provided in the current section to achieve a specific result. To indicate a variable in a command or code syntax that you must replace.

For example. the command can accept either two or three parameters. You can optionally include param2 as the second parameter. the command requires two parameters. the following command requires two parameters. or the pair param3 and param4. The first parameter can be either param1 or param2 and the second can be either param3 or param4: MyCommand {param1 | param2} {param3 | param4} In the next example. MyCommand param1 [param2] {param3 | param4} TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . And the last parameter is either param3 or param4. For example: MyCommand [optional_parameter] required_parameter | A logical ’OR’ that separates multiple items of which only one may be chosen. you can select only one of the following parameters: MyCommand para1 | param2 | param3 { } A logical group of items in a command.xxii | Typographical Conventions Table 2 Syntax Typographical Conventions Convention [ ] Use An optional item in a command or code syntax. For example. Other syntax notations may appear within each logical group. The first parameter must be param1.

Relationship to TIBCO® Management Daemon Software ActiveMatrix Administrator uses TIBCO Management Daemon software to enable configuration and management of ActiveMatrix infrastructure. TIBCO Administrator software is required in an ActiveMatrix Administrator runtime only if you use the TIBCO Administrator authentication realm (see on page 23). ActiveMatrix Administrator Setup This section gives an overview of the relationships you set up between ActiveMatrix Administrator servers. see Relationship to TIBCO® Management Daemon Software on page 4. The authentication realm can be provided either by TIBCO Administrator (see Relationship to TIBCO Administrator™ Software) or by another server or a file.

Access to ActiveMatrix Administrator UI functions and ActiveMatrix runtimes is controlled based on permissions granted to specific users and groups.Introduction 5 | TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administrator Servers and Clusters The first step in setting upActiveMatrix Administrator is to create one or more ActiveMatrix Administrator servers. Database Tables ActiveMatrix Administrator data is stored in a database. or you may require more. different sets of ActiveMatrix environments and their nodes. Thus. You may need only one cluster. To enable flexibility in administering multiple ActiveMatrix runtimes. before you create the first ActiveMatrix TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . All ActiveMatrix Administrator servers in the same cluster use the same authentication realm and you cannot change realms after you create the first server in the cluster. This keeps different sets of environments administered by different clusters separate from each other for better management. ActiveMatrix Administrator servers are members of a cluster. an environment can be administered by only one cluster. it is recommended that you create more than one server for the following reasons: • • To permit one server to take over from another in the event of server failure. Conversely. for example. that is. AllActiveMatrix Administrator servers in a cluster use the same database tables and you cannot change databases after you create the first server in the cluster. The database tables are used only for servers in that cluster and not for any other cluster. one for each geographic region of a global enterprise. Authentication Realms An authentication realm describes the method of storing information about ActiveMatrix Administrator users and groups. The cluster is created when the first server is created. You select and configure database tables when creating the first server in a cluster. ActiveMatrix Administrator automatically keeps the servers within a cluster synchronized. Therefore. Within each cluster. This is particularly recommended in production systems. You select and configure the authentication realm when creating the first server in a cluster. not just for that particular server. Each cluster administers a different set of environments. when you invoke the URL of any server in a cluster in the ActiveMatrix Administrator user interface you access the administration data for the entire cluster.

Database. You choose machines that to use for the ActiveMatrix runtime administered by this cluster. you bind machines to the ActiveMatrix Administrator cluster. Finally. you specify which environments can use the ActiveMatrix installations it manages.

Depending on your requirements (multiple nodes on one machine or multiple nodes on multiple machines or a mixture of both). When the service assembly containing the resource is uploaded the shared resource is imported into the enterprise as an HTTP server shared resource definition. because a single HTTP server shared resource definition is used to create the shared resource. This constraint can lead to scalability limitations. If the nodes run on different machines. Substitution variables are constants specified at the enterprise level. override the hostname property value for each node. override the port property value for each node.Shared Resource Life Cycle 11 | Customizing HTTP Shared Resource Definitions At design-time. the shared resource profile is mapped to exactly one shared resource of type HTTP server. a service with a SOAP binding uses a HTTP shared resource profile which is mapped to an HTTP shared resource. you bind the hostname and port properties to substitution variables in the shared resource definition and customize the substitution variables per node as follows: • If the node is running on a different machine than the value specified in the shared resource definition. the HTTP server shared resources on each node must use different port numbers to avoid conflicts. often the resource that was imported. when configuring the definition you cannot explicitly specify the hostname and port number variations required to run it on multiple nodes.

Suppose you want to run this SOAP service on multiple nodes for load balancing or fault tolerance or both. However. An HTTP server shared resource must be available on all nodes where that SOAP service runs. If the nodes run on the same machine. The solution is to use a template shared resource definition that can be customized for each node. the HTTP server shared resources on each node must use a different host name.

Ask your network administrator for the multicast and broadcast IP addresses used in your network. When you configure an environment. Overview This section describes how ActiveMatrix Administrator discovers and binds to machines. Discovery of machines on a different subnet is achieved using JMX to tunnel to one machine on the subnet. Discovering Machines You can discover machines on the same subnet and on different subnets using search parameters that you define and save for reuse. depending on configuration. see UDP. The broadcast address for a subnet is determined by a combination of the subnet mask and network class defined by the network administrator. TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . you can use only the machines associated with that environment. To determine the current settings for the port number.100 | Chapter 5 Configuring Enterprise Assets Managing Machines You use ActiveMatrix Administrator to discover and bind to machines you want to include in the ActiveMatrix runtime. Local Network Discovery Figure 13 on page 101 illustrates how you discover machines running on local networks using multicast or broadcast URLs. then broadcast or multicast to discover other machines in the subnet. multicast. By default. ActiveMatrix Administrator supports discovery in a wide variety of network topologies which include point to point. You associate each bound machine with one or more environments. Discovery of machines on the same subnet is achieved using broadcast or multicast. and Management Ports on page 18. Discovery. The default broadcast mask is often 255. the port on which the Management Daemon processes listen for requests sent using the UDP protocol is set to 1965.

See Identity Shared Resource Definition Reference on page 121 and SSL Server Shared Resource Definition on page 135.156 | Chapter 5 Configuring Enterprise Assets Managing Keystores Keystores Overview A keystore is a database of keys and certificates. An alias may also identify the purpose of the key. It is called a trusted certificate because the keystore owner trusts that the public key in the certificate belongs to the identity identified by the subject (owner) of the certificate. or using different public key algorithms. Private keys and certificate chains are used by a given entity for self-authentication. This type of entry can be used to authenticate other parties. An alias is could also be named after a particular role in which the keystore owner uses the associated key. which serve as identities for participants in SSL sessions. Keystore Entries A keystore has two types of entries: • Private key This type of entry holds a cryptographic private key. TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . Certificates of trusted entities are typically imported into a keystore as trusted certificates. which is optionally stored in a protected format to prevent unauthorized access.

Plug-ins
TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administrator is extensible. This means that other TIBCO products can add functionality, such as new perspectives and new screens within the standard perspectives, to ActiveMatrix Administrator. The product-specific functionality is added to ActiveMatrix Administrator by uploading and deploying a plug-in containing new features. The plug-in is packaged as a WAR file. You can deploy, start, stop, and undeploy plug-ins without restarting the ActiveMatrix Administrator server. A plug-in automatically gets deployed to all other servers. Also, the state of a plug-in is the same on all servers. Both the Metrics Manager (see Metrics Manager Server on page 243) and the Log Service and Log Viewer (see Working with Log Services on page 300 and Using the Log Viewer on page 316) are implemented as plug-ins to ActiveMatrix Administrator. This section describes how to manage the life cycle of a plug-in. Deploying a Plug-in Only one version of a plug-in can be deployed at any point in time. There are two ways to deploy a plug-in: automatically and manually. To automatically deploy a plug-in, copy the WAR file containing the plug-in to the AMX_ADMIN_HOME/plugins directory. Plug-ins are automatically started when they are deployed. To manually deploy a plug-in: 1. Click the Plug-ins link. 2. Click Deploy. 3. Click Browse.... Navigate to a directory containing the plug-in and select the plug-in WAR file.

ActiveMatrix Administrator Servers
This section describes how to mange ActiveMatrix Administrator servers once you have already created the first server in a cluster (see Creating the First ActiveMatrix Administrator Server on page 26). Creating an ActiveMatrix Administrator Server The first ActiveMatrix Administrator server in a cluster is created with the ActiveMatrix Administrator server creation utility. The ActiveMatrix Administrator server creation action creates additional server replicas within the cluster. The primary reason to create ActiveMatrix Administrator servers is to achieve fault-tolerance. See TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administrator Servers and Clusters on page 5. To create an ActiveMatrix Administrator server: 1. Click the Administrator Servers link. 2. Click the New button on top of the Administrator Servers table. 3. Provide values for the properties described in Table 38 on page 165. 4. When you are finished editing, click the Save button. The newly created ActiveMatrix Administrator server is automatically installed on the machine.

Deleting an ActiveMatrix Administrator Server There are various reasons why you might want to delete an ActiveMatrix Administrator server. For example, you may want to use that machine on which the server is running for another purpose, and create a replacement server on another machine. When you delete a server, the database entries for the server are also deleted. All runtime configuration data, however, is preserved. A server can only be deleted when it has the following status: Installed/Stopped, Install Failed, Delete Failed, or Unknown. To delete an ActiveMatrix Administrator server: 1. Click the Administrator Servers link. 2. Select a server in the Administrator Servers table. 3. Click the Delete button. Starting and Stopping ActiveMatrix Administrator Servers To start or stop ActiveMatrix Administrator servers: 1. Click the Administrator Servers link. 2. Select one or more servers in the Administrator Servers table. 3. Select Start or Stop. If you stop all the servers in a cluster, the runtime administered by that cluster becomes unusable.

Managing Logging

Working with Log Services
Log services encapsulate a destination and a set of event models. Log services can: — Collect log events across the entire enterprise — Collect specific class(es) of events, such as audit events, SPM events, or alerts — Collect log events and forward to another process — Import log events from a file — Send events to a database or log file For example, in Figure 22 on page 294: — Log service LS1 receives events on Q1. A queue bridge routes the events to another process. — Log service LS2 receives events on Q2 and stores them in a log file. — Log service LS3 is the default log service. It receives events on Q3 and stores them in a database. It also imports the log file created by Node 2. ActiveMatrix nodes and objects running on the nodes can log only to the log service designated as the default log service. Operations on log services are described in the following sections: • • • • • • Creating a Log Service on page 300 Setting the Default Log Service on page 301 Starting and Stopping a Log Service on page 302 Editing a Log Service on page 302 Deleting a Log Service on page 303 Purging a Log Service Database on page 306

The file name is appended with a number as described in Max Backup Index. — Max File Size The maximum size of each log file. — Max Backup Index The number of log files you wish to keep. When a log file reaches the maximum size, a new log file is created. After the number of files matches the number specified, the oldest is deleted when a new file is created. Each file is appended with a number. •
No Configuration The messages are not directed to a destination. The log

service acts as a bridge for log events consumed by another process listening on the queue. Models The types of event models handled by the log service. Use the left and right arrows to move models between the Available Models and Selected Models lists.

Command-Line You can also configure a log service from the ActiveMatrix Administrator command-line interface (see ActiveMatrix Administrator Command-Line Interface on page 77). To configure a log service, you invoke the edit action in the build file and specify a value for the LogServiceConfiguration element in the data file. The format of a LogServiceConfiguration varies depending on the type of the destination. All LogServiceConfiguration elements have subelements: LogServiceName, JMSSharedResourceName, QueueName, Destination, and ModelList.

The certificate usually contains the server name. SSL is a cryptographic protocol that provides security and data integrity for communications over TCP/IP networks. and the server's public encryption key. SSL encrypts the segments of network connections at the Transport Layer end-to-end. An SSL client and server negotiate a stateful connection by using a handshaking procedure. these communication protocols are not secure. The handshake begins when a client connects to an SSL-enabled server requesting a secure connection. The client may contact the server that issued the certificate (the trusted CA as above) and confirm that the certificate is authentic before proceeding.336 | Appendix A Securing TIBCO ActiveMatrix Communication Channels Overview The TIBCO ActiveMatrix platform is partitioned across many components. The components and communication channels are illustrated in Figure 31 on page 337. the client and server agree on various parameters to establish the connection's security. These components communicate with each other and with third-party applications. The server sends back its identification in the form of a digital certificate. the trusted certificate authority (CA). However. The communication occurs by different communication protocols. During this handshake. TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . they can be secured by configuring the communication channels to use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol.

The normalization of such a configuration enhances message reliability as it limits the sessions (for message delivery) to same as thread pool size (for message processing).Overview 361 | Session Count and Max Pool Size Normalization must be greater than or equal to sessioncount. maxpoolsize Life Cycle Start The sessions and thread pool are created when the service is started. Additional threads may be created as required until pool size reaches maximum count. The thread pool may contain minimum number of threads during its creation. Stop The sessions and thread pool are removed when the service is stopped. The thread pool does orderly shutdown by finishing all running threads. If maxpoolsize is less than sessioncount then the sessioncount is made equal to maxpoolsize.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . It avoids any interference or contention for threads by other services running in the node. the JMS provider tries to get a session object from the session pool to deliver the messages. In case of distributed message processing. The session pool may serve as throttling mechanism to limit the delivery of messages from the Enterprise Message Service server. This architecture provides tremendous reliability to the application as messages are safely stored in the Enterprise Message Service server instead of getting backed up in the application process.362 | Appendix C Usage Session and Thread Pools The session and thread pool are intertwined when it comes to message processing. The thread pool may serve as sandbox available to every service for concurrent message processing. The session object in turn tries to get a thread from the thread pool thus providing thread of control to invoke message listeners.

in-out) type of message exchanges then session and thread pool is created to process the responses. If a component is both provider and a consumer then the thread pool is shared for requests (from consumers) and responses (from services it consumes). It must be noted that if consumer is invoking one way message exchanges (that is. The properties are configured in the node’s . Table 116 Role (Consumer/Provider). Like all other bindings.tra file so it is coarse grained as it applies to all services deployed in that node. and references in a composite are internally wired through ActiveMatrix bindings. components. there is ActiveMatrix service and ActiveMatrix reference. Each port type is assigned a corresponding ActiveMatrix binding during serialization to a composite file. MEP. But if the consumer is invoking request-response (that is.

The initialization of an ActiveMatrix reference also results in the creation of sessions and thread pool for the consumer to process the responses. in-only) then no session or thread pool is created. Table 116 maps the session and thread pool creation vis-à-vis consumer-provider roles and message exchange patterns.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . This is especially useful in case of services whose average response time is very small or services whose throughput must be high.364 | Appendix C Session and Thread Pools Best Practices Session Count and Max Pool Size The maxpoolsize property almost always must be set to higher value than session count. It is particularly important to set maxpoolsize value higher than the sessioncount if the service is expected to be invoked by both local and remote consumers. If thread pool does not have idle threads then the processing will continue on the consumer’s thread. In case of local invocation. Since every service has its own session and thread pool the services that have demanding QoS (quality of service) may not be affected by “slower” services deployed on the same node as the “slower” services will have its own session and thread pool to process its messages. The message delivery and its subsequent processing rely on making one of the available threads from the thread pool as the thread of control. Service Optimization Service message processing optimization is possible by fine tuning the sessioncount and maxpoolsize properties based on some pre-defined business criteria for e.g. By increasing the sessioncount and maxpoolsize for a service enables the messaging bus to dramatically increase concurrent message delivery and processing. messages delivered by Enterprise Message Service server. average response time.e. For example. if the service is expected to be invoked in equal measure by local and remote consumers then desirable maxpoolsize is two times the value of sessioncount. The rationale being the system resource (that is. That results in more reliable message delivery since the messages continue to be persisted in Enterprise Message Service server. one of the available threads from thread pool is utilized to initiate the provider processing. It is best to control message flow limit via sessioncount property so that message delivery is blocked until a session is available. The maxpoolsize property is applicable for both local and distributed service invocation. Local Invocations It must be noted that the sessioncount property is only applicable for messages exchanged in a distributed environment i. a thread from the thread pool) must be always available when the message is received from Enterprise Message Service server for processing.

This makes message delivery more reliable as newer messages are not delivered until there is session available from the session pool. TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration .Best Practices 365 | Session Release The JMS session is not released back to the session pool until the message listener is finished. Since the message listener invokes the service synchronously the session is blocked until the service processing is complete.

In production environments load can be high and faster response time is more important. These factors can be categorized into two categories: • • JVM Configuration on page 369 ActiveMatrix Administrator Server Configuration on page 372 The factors discussed in the JVM section are applicable to both ActiveMatrix Administrator server and Management Daemon. The factors discussed in the ActiveMatrix Administrator Server section are applicable only to the ActiveMatrix Administrator server.368 | Appendix D ActiveMatrix Server Performance Tuning Overview The use cases this appendix addresses are: • • Production environments Non-production environments These two use cases have different requirements. The factors discussed in the following sections can be managed according to the use case. TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . In non-production environments the load is minimal and the memory footprint is expected to be low.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . Client Intended for executing applications with shorter life span which need fast start-up time or smaller runtime memory footprint. Hence in both cases you can make modifications to the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) configuration to achieve desired performance. This section describes some of these modifications.tra Using Client and Server Modes The JVM used to run ActiveMatrix Administrator server and Management Daemon can run in one of two modes: client or server. Startup Time Memory Usage In addition. Faster startup time as the compiler does not try to execute complex optimizations. This option requires a larger memory footprint. Specially tuned to maximize peak operating speed.tra Management Daemon ENV_HOME/managementdaemon/2. the JVM de-allocates unused memory space faster. As the client doesn't perform optimizations proactively. Table 117 JVM Client and Server Mode Properties Server Application Types Intended for executing long-running server applications. More code optimizations require a larger footprint. Table 117 shows some of the differences between the modes:.JVM Configuration 369 | JVM Configuration Both ActiveMatrix Administrator server and Management Daemon are Java-based software systems. it requires a smaller memory footprint. which you perform in the following TRA configuration files: • • ActiveMatrix Administrator AMX_ADMIN_HOME/data/cluster/server/bin/cluster_server. when client mode is used.0/bin/managementdaemon.
