TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . and interacts withTIBCO Management Daemon to manage nodes. interacts with the authentication realm to authenticate users. • ActiveMatrix Database Stores ActiveMatrix administration data. responds to requests from the ActiveMatrix Administrator graphical and command-line UIs.

Management Daemon Gathers installation information and exposes ActiveMatrix node life cycle operations. TIBCO Management Daemon provides bootstrap and machine-level management functionality. TIBCO Administrator software is required in an ActiveMatrix Administrator runtime only if you use the TIBCO Administrator authentication realm (see on page 23). and monitoring tasks for products in their respective product families. While TIBCO Administrator uses TIBCO Rendezvous® and TIBCO Hawk® for communication. It runs on all the machines where ActiveMatrix software is installed. See ActiveMatrix Administrator Cluster. ActiveMatrix Administrator uses the protocols SOAP/HTTP and JMX/JMXMP. Relationship to TIBCO Administrator™ Software TIBCO Administrator software and ActiveMatrix Administrator perform some similar functions for different TIBCO product families.

Machine.

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

Groups.Life Cycle of the ActiveMatrix Runtime 7 | Life Cycle of the ActiveMatrix Runtime After you have created and started the servers and connected the Management Daemon process on machines you want to use. Registering keystores. you use the ActiveMatrix Administrator user interface to configure enterprise assets and define and configure one or more environments on those machines. Setting up users. Enterprise asset configuration involves: • • • Configuring UDDI servers. and what physical resources are needed by the service units that are deployed to the various containers. you are ready to configure and start the TIBCO ActiveMatrix runtime and deploy services to it. The plan determines where service units run. It also specifies the interactions with enterprise applications outside the ActiveMatrix platform. These enable the services deployed in each node’s containers to connect with physical resources as required. See Managing Users. ensure that you have a clear deployment plan. See Managing Keystores on page 156. These define connection details for physical resources required by the deployed service units. Before You Begin Before you set up the runtime. Specifying shared resources for each node. See Working with Nodes on page 188 and Working with Containers on page 202. TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration • . and Permissions on page 137. See Managing Users. Groups. See Managing Shared Resource Definitions on page 114. • • Environment configuration involves the following activities: • • Configuring Messaging Bus settings and setting up the messaging server or servers for each environment. Each shared resource points to a shared resource definition for connection details. Configuring nodes and containers for each environment and installing them. Configuring shared resource definitions. and Permissions on page 137.

Configuring the service assembly. Two-Step Configuration: First Define. As needed.8 | Chapter 1 TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administrator Overview The indirection introduced by shared resources enables you to control use of the physical resource at the node level (after deployment). install. first uninstall it. You can later reinstall it as needed. You may define a node. Starting Installed Nodes You can define. the nodes and containers that service units will deploy into must be running. then start them all. The object definitions are stored in the database. • • TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . Before you can change the definition of an installed object. Deploying the service assembly. you are ready to deploy. Deployment involves the following activities: • • Uploading a service assembly archive. install it. Then change the definition as required. and install it again. and then start it to ensure that it is running correctly. Deploying Service Assemblies After you have configured. Before you can deploy a service assembly. The objects are installed onto machines that have been bound to the ActiveMatrix Administrator cluster. This involves determining on which nodes the service assembly’s service units will be deployed and which shared resources to use for the shared resource profiles specified in the service units. you can also override substitution variables set in the service assembly archive. and installed the shared resources you need in each node. Or you can define several nodes. installed. and start nodes following different practices to suit your needs. Starting the service assembly. The definitions persist even if you uninstall an installed object. and started the nodes. This way you can ensure that your runtime is working as expected at each step. See Working with Shared Resources on page 207. See Working with Nodes on page 188 and Working with Containers on page 202 for related procedures. Then Install When you are configuring an environment’s nodes and shared resources you first define each object and then you install it.

see TIBCO ActiveMatrix Composite Editor User’s Guide and TIBCO ActiveMatrix Service Grid Component Developer’s Guide product. You can then start and stop each one separately. you configure it before deployment. You can also upload the same service assembly archive multiple times. For more details on the design-time activities whose output is the service assembly.

often the resource that was imported. the shared resource profile is mapped to exactly one shared resource of type HTTP server. the HTTP server shared resources on each node must use a different host name. An HTTP server shared resource must be available on all nodes where that SOAP service runs. 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. However. If the nodes run on different machines. 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. because a single HTTP server shared resource definition is used to create the shared resource. Depending on your requirements (multiple nodes on one machine or multiple nodes on multiple machines or a mixture of both). override the hostname property value for each node. Substitution variables are constants specified at the enterprise level. A template shared resource definition has at least one property bound to a substitution variable.Shared Resource Life Cycle 11 | Customizing HTTP Shared Resource Definitions At design-time. Suppose you want to run this SOAP service on multiple nodes for load balancing or fault tolerance or both. a service with a SOAP binding uses a HTTP shared resource profile which is mapped to an HTTP shared resource. If the nodes are running on the same machine. when configuring the definition you cannot explicitly specify the hostname and port number variations required to run it on multiple nodes. When the service assembly is configured for deployment. This constraint can lead to scalability limitations. but can be overridden at the node level. The nodes may be running on one machine or across multiple machines. override the port property value for each node. When the service assembly containing the resource is uploaded the shared resource is imported into the enterprise as an HTTP server shared resource definition. • TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . the HTTP server shared resources on each node must use different port numbers to avoid conflicts.

You use the command-line interface for repetitive application of standard actions on large numbers of objects. Extending the perspectives TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administrator is extensible. The product-specific functionality is added to ActiveMatrix Administrator by uploading and deploying a plug-in containing new features. In the ActiveMatrix Administrator graphical interface functionality is divided into perspectives. The remaining chapters in this book provide extensive task and reference information on each perspective. it supports adding. and deploying and undeploying objects. This means that other TIBCO products can add functionality. see ActiveMatrix Administrator Command-Line Interface on page 77.

then you don’t need to include an xsi:type attribute required because that is what is declared in the XSD. if you want to define an Environment object under the Enterprise. If you want to create an Environment_base object.. Also there is nothing in the schemas that derives from Node_reference.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . Discovery. Overview This section describes how ActiveMatrix Administrator discovers and binds to machines. By default. multicast. Local Network Discovery Figure 13 on page 101 illustrates how you discover machines running on local networks using multicast or broadcast URLs. depending on configuration. then broadcast or multicast to discover other machines in the subnet. Some companies choose not to use broadcast addresses. ActiveMatrix Administrator supports discovery in a wide variety of network topologies which include point to point. the port on which the Management Daemon processes listen for requests sent using the UDP protocol is set to 1965. you can use only the machines associated with that environment. Discovering Machines You can discover machines on the same subnet and on different subnets using search parameters that you define and save for reuse. Ask your network administrator for the multicast and broadcast IP addresses used in your network. To determine the current settings for the port number. see UDP. You associate each bound machine with one or more environments. Discovery of machines on a different subnet is achieved using JMX to tunnel to one machine on the subnet. and Management Ports on page 18. Discovery of machines on the same subnet is achieved using broadcast or multicast. When you configure an environment.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. The default broadcast mask is often 255.

That machine discovers other machines on its subnet using broadcast or multicast.Managing Machines 101 | Figure 13 Local Network Discovery Admin Cluster 1 Legend AS M MD Administrator server Machine TIBCO Management Daemon AS1 on M1 AS2 on M2 User enters search parameters and discovers Management Daemon instances on remote machines MD3 on M3 Br oa dc as t/M ult ic as t MD5 on M5 MD8 on M8 Each Management Daemon process returns a datagram with the following information: • • • Management Daemon process name and description TIBCO home that the Management Daemon process is managing The Management Daemon’s discovery JMX address Then ActiveMatrix Administrator uses the discovery JMX addresses to query the Management Daemon processes for the management JMX address you can use to connect to and control the nodes on each machine. Bridged Network Discovery Figure 14 on page 102 illustrates how you discover machines running on a different subnet from ActiveMatrix Administrator. TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . First you connect to one machine using the JMX discovery URL and initiate the discovery process.

you enter the hostname and JMX port for the Management Daemon you plan to use. ActiveMatrix Administrator uses this information to construct the JMX discovery URL.102 | Chapter 5 Configuring Enterprise Assets Figure 14 Bridged Network Discovery Legend AS Administrator server M Machine MD TIBCO Management Daemon Admin Cluster 1 AS1 on M1 AS2 on M2 1 User enters JMX discovery URL and initiates discovery process with Management Daemon M16.

For details on how to bind machines. In order for automatic binding to occur. then auto-bind fails. Reads the Management Daemon configuration file and extracts the bind URL. If auto-bind has failed at startup. Auto-bind Failure The auto-bind operation is attempted only when the ActiveMatrix Administrator server starts up. the ActiveMatrix Administrator server performs the following steps: 1. the Management Daemon is not running.Managing Machines 103 | Binding Machines Of the available machines that meet your discovery search criteria. you select the ones you want to bind to. where hostname is the literal hostname of the machine.

Private keys and certificate chains are used by a given entity for self-authentication. Keystores contain keystore entries. A keystore password is required to access or modify the keystore. An alias is could also be named after a particular role in which the keystore owner uses the associated key. See Identity Shared Resource Definition Reference on page 121 and SSL Server Shared Resource Definition on page 135. TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . For example. Keystore Entries A keystore has two types of entries: • Private key This type of entry holds a cryptographic private key. • Trusted certificate This type of entry contains a single public key certificate. It is also accompanied by a certificate chain for the corresponding public key. This type of entry can be used to authenticate other parties. which is optionally stored in a protected format to prevent unauthorized access. An alias may also identify the purpose of the key. the entity may authenticate itself using different certificate authorities. these aliases distinguish among the different ways in which the entity may authenticate itself. Certificates of trusted entities are typically imported into a keystore as trusted certificates.156 | Chapter 5 Configuring Enterprise Assets Managing Keystores Keystores Overview A keystore is a database of keys and certificates. 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. which serve as identities for participants in SSL sessions. or using different public key algorithms.

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.

Duplicate messages can be delivered if Messaging Bus fails to acknowledge the message. This is because messages are stored for delivery when the server restarts. The characteristics of Best Effort delivery are: • • • Messages can be dropped if the server has undelivered messages and is then restarted. • • • TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . Messages are guaranteed to be delivered at least once. or if acknowledgement is not received by the server. messages are delivered when the node is up (whether or not the Enterprise Message Service server continues running without restarting in the interim). Messages are resent if the Enterprise Message Service server or target node is down. Messages are logged to persistent storage. If the target node is down. node1 restarted after a QoS change may start sending messages using Best Effort QoS while node2 which did not restart may continue to send messages using At Most Once QoS. A message confirming message receipt by the server is sent to the message sender (and this adversely affects performance). For example. If the target node is down. provided the Enterprise Message Service server continues running without restarting in the interim. The characteristics of At Least Once delivery are: • Messages are not dropped if the server has undelivered messages and if server is restarted.

Default: tcp://localhost:7222 The default setting for the Provider URL works in the following circumstances: • • All nodes created in the environment are collocated with the TIBCO Enterprise Message Service server The TIBCO Enterprise Message Service server is configured to use the default port of 7222 Since in most cases all nodes in an environment are collocated with the TIBCO Enterprise Message Service server. Changing the provider URL to a completely different server has the following implications: • • Message exchanges between nodes may break down between nodes using the old server and nodes using a new server.flight message exchanges may result in orphan requests or replies depending on the location of consumers and providers in running nodes and consumer and providers in restarted nodes. For example. see the API documentation for TibjmsConnectionFactory in TIBCO Enterprise Message Service product documentation. Message exchanges between nodes pointing to old server may continue seemingly inconsistent with broken interaction with nodes using the new server.

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 field specifies the file name and optionally the location. If the file location is not specified, the file location defaults to AMX_ADMIN_HOME/data/cluster/server/logs. 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 following sections contain example build file task definition and data file elements.

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

Overview 361 | Session Count and Max Pool Size Normalization must be greater than or equal to sessioncount. Additional threads may be created as required until pool size reaches maximum count. If maxpoolsize is less than sessioncount then the sessioncount is made equal to maxpoolsize. The thread pool does orderly shutdown by finishing all running threads. The thread pool may contain minimum number of threads during its creation. TIBCO ActiveMatrix Administration . maxpoolsize Life Cycle Start The sessions and thread pool are created when the service is started. Stop The sessions and thread pool are removed when the service is stopped. 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).

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

The initialization of an ActiveMatrix service results in the creation of sessions and thread pool for the service.

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. a thread from the thread pool) must be always available when the message is received from Enterprise Message Service server for processing. average response time. 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. Local Invocations It must be noted that the sessioncount property is only applicable for messages exchanged in a distributed environment i. one of the available threads from thread pool is utilized to initiate the provider processing. 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. The message delivery and its subsequent processing rely on making one of the available threads from the thread pool as the thread of control. By increasing the sessioncount and maxpoolsize for a service enables the messaging bus to dramatically increase concurrent message delivery and processing. The maxpoolsize property is applicable for both local and distributed service invocation. The rationale being the system resource (that is.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.g. It is best to control message flow limit via sessioncount property so that message delivery is blocked until a session is available.e. In case of local invocation. For example. If thread pool does not have idle threads then the processing will continue on the consumer’s thread. messages delivered by Enterprise Message Service server. That results in more reliable message delivery since the messages continue to be persisted in Enterprise Message Service server. 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. 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.

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.
