Application > IBM WebSphere
Your WebSphere environment represents a business-critical platform, one on which the most critical applications are based. Quite simply, if WebSphere performance suffers, so does your business. Count on CA Nimsoft to make sure that doesn’t happen.
CA Nimsoft Monitor for WebSphere can continually monitor and report on critical performance data within WebSphere Application Server environments—delivering the comprehensive, actionable information you need to ensure users enjoy high availability and peak performance.
Fast, Easy, Flexible IBM WebSphere Monitoring
Getting started with CA Nimsoft Monitor is simple, efficient process that automates many essential tasks. CA Nimsoft Monitor automatically discovers available node.server combinations, and it features installation and configuration wizards that streamline tasks such as setting thresholds and configuring alarms. Using a PMI module browser, you can browse all available MBeans, and simply point and click to select those you want to monitor.
Sophisticated Capabilities that Boost IBM WebSphere Monitoring Effectiveness
With CA Nimsoft Monitor, your business can harness a range of sophisticated IBM WebSphere monitoring capabilities:
- Granular monitoring.
CA Nimsoft Monitor gives you complete flexibility and granularity in setting thresholds and polling intervals. For example, you can set up polling options based on current value, change in value over a given time frame, and average value.
- Advanced correlation.
In addition to setting alarms for specific counters, CA Nimsoft Monitor lets you employ advanced correlation among multiple profiles, so for example, you can choose to only be alerted if a certain behavior is occurring across several servers. As a result, you can create more sophisticated, alerts, better manage system resources, and minimize false alarms.
- Real-time status.
For each counter, you can click on a “monitor” menu option and view a real-time performance graph that offers current performance status taken at two-second intervals. By delivering up-to-the-second performance data, CA Nimsoft Monitor makes it easy for you to get a real-time view of your WebSphere environment.

Multi-Layered Coverage for IBM WebSphere Monitoring Environments
Using an intuitive user interface, you can monitor your entire WebSphere infrastructure, whether it is comprised of a single application server, or a number of server clusters.
Administrators can set up thresholds and alarms at multiple levels within their infrastructure:
- Resources—collections of WebSphere application servers.
- Resource groups—collections of node.server combinations within each WebSphere application server cluster.
- Profiles—custom-defined groupings of individual node.server combinations within a resource group.
- Counters—specific performance metrics for each node.server combination.
At the counter level, administrators can track a range of specific performance metrics, including memory usage, numbers of database connections and how efficiently they’re being used, programs that have started or stopped, and many more.
