Chapter 1: About Introscope and WebView 15

Chapter 1: About Introscope and WebView

Introscope WebView is a browser-based interface to the dashboards, metrics and other
elements of your Introscope-monitored applications. It allows you to search and view
many of the same elements you can view using Introscope Workstation, but through a
thin-client interface, without the need for downloading and installing the Workstation
application.
Using WebView, you can:
view Introscope application performance data from any computer, anywhere, that
is running a compatible browser.
broaden access within your company to anyone with a web browser, without the
need for them to install client software.
enable different groups within your company to work together to analyze and
resolve application performance problems.
This section contains the following topics:
Overview: Introscope and WebView (see page 15)
WebView and Introscope Workstation functionality (see page 17)
Overview: Introscope and WebView
You can view Introscope metrics in several ways, using both thick and thin
(browser-based) clients. WebView is a thin-client interface for browsing metrics.
How probes monitor applications
Introscope uses its ProbeBuilder utility to add Introscope "probes" to a Java application.
Probes measure specific pieces of information about an application without changing
the application's business logic.
AutoProbe enables ProbeBuilder to dynamically add probes to a Java application when
the application starts. An Introscope agent is installed on the same machine as the
instrumented application.
Overview: Introscope and WebView

16 WebView User Guide for SAP

After probes have been installed in the bytecode, the Java application is referred to as
an instrumented application. When the Java application with probes is running, it is
called a managed application.
As a managed application runs, probes relay collected data to the agent. The agent then
collects and summarizes the data and sends it to the Enterprise Manager. This
illustration shows the Introscope components and how they cooperate and
communicate with one another:

How WebView fits into an Introscope deployment
Introscope WebView is a browser-based alternative to the Workstation client
application. WebView is installed as part of the Introscope core package and runs
independently of an application server. After installing WebView, a standard Web
browser is all that is required to view Introscope data.
WebView is:
a view-only client.
implements a subset of the functions available in the Workstation.
enables a user to view performance data, but does not provide the advanced
configuration and Alert capabilities provided by the Workstation.
WebView thus does not replace Introscope Workstation, but complements it.
Introscope customers often decide to deploy both the Workstation and WebView, to
offer the broadest level of data access capabilities to meet different users' needs.
WebView and Introscope Workstation functionality

Chapter 1: About Introscope and WebView 17

WebView and Introscope Workstation functionality
Both the Introscope Workstation and WebView provide a window to view metric data
reported by Introscope agents. However, WebView provides a simplified, view-only
environment, and the Introscope Workstation provides a way to edit business logic
constructs as well as view metric data.
Both WebView and Workstation enable you to view metric data in the Investigator and
console dashboards, but only the Workstation enables you to create and edit elements
(alerts, metric groups, etc.) and dashboards.
These are the functional differences between WebView and the Workstation:

Function WebView Workstation
View Investigator and Console in web browser Yes No
View metric data and Blame information in Investigator tree Yes Yes
View pre-configured dashboards Yes Yes
View historical data Yes Yes
Filter dashboards to show only data from selected agents Yes Yes
Create and edit dashboards No Yes
Change data viewer type in Investigator preview pane and make
temporary viewer modifications
No Yes
Receive alert notifications No Yes
Create and edit Management Module elements (alerts, actions etc.)
and view element settings
No Yes
Perform administrative functions (mount/unmount agents, shut down
Enterprise Manager, shut off agents/resources/metrics)
No Yes
Consult the CA APMWorkstation User Guide for help using the Introscope Workstation
to perform Workstation-only tasks.


Chapter 2: Viewing Introscope Data in WebView 19

Chapter 2: Viewing Introscope Data in
WebView

WebView provides a browser-based alternative to the Introscope Workstation, enabling
you to view data collected by the Enterprise Manager.

This section contains the following topics:
Using WebView (see page 19)
Viewing Introscope data in WebView console (see page 25)
Viewing metric data in the Investigator (see page 27)
Troubleshooting Blurry Images in Some Browsers (see page 30)
WebView Data Viewers (see page 31)
Using WebView
Before using WebView:
The WebView application must be running on the machine hosting the Introscope
Enterprise Manager (EM) whose data you want to view.
Logging in using WebView
To log into WebView:
1. Start Internet Explorer 6.0.1 or higher on a Windows machine.
2. Use the URL your administrator has set up to start WebView. This will probably be
something like:
http://hostname:8080
where hostname is the name of the machine hosting the Enterprise Manager.
The Introscope WebView login screen opens.
Using WebView

20 WebView User Guide for SAP

3. Enter your username and password and click Log In.
Note: Username and password are authenticated through the Enterprise Manager,
so you can use the same username and password for WebView as you use for
logging into the Workstation.
If the username and password are valid, the WebView Welcome Screen opens.
WebView requires the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in. If it is not installed on your machine,
you will be prompted to download it.
More information:
Installing the Silverlight plug-in (see page 23)

Using SSL with WebView
Administrators can configure Enterprise Manager to use WebView over SSL.
The Introscope installation includes a sample Jetty 6.1.14 XML configuration file:
<EM_Home>/config/em-jetty-config.xml
This file specifies an SSL socket connector on port 8444.
To use WebView over SSL, you edit IntroscopeEnterpriseManager.properties to point to
your jetty configuration file, em-jetty-config.xml if you are using the sample file.
Note: When you log into an Enterprise Manager using WebView on SSL, you will see a
warning saying the SSL certificate is invalid. This is correct; Introscope does not ship
WebView with an SSL certificate. You can ignore this warning and click Yes. To see
information on using a valid certificate, see the instructions at
http://docs.codehaus.org/display/JETTY/How+to+configure+SSL.
To configure the Enterprise Manager to use SSL with WebView:
1. Open <EM_Home>/config/IntroscopeEnterpriseManager.properties for editing.
2. Uncomment the line reading:
#introscope.enterprisemanager.webserver.jetty.configurationFile=em-jetty-
config.xml
where em-jetty-config.xml is the name of your Jetty configuration file.
Using WebView

Chapter 2: Viewing Introscope Data in WebView 21

3. Save and close the file, and restart the Enterprise Manager.
The new configuration will be loaded on startup.
By default, the new configuration will:
disable the HTTP port and enable WebView to only use SSL.
use port 8444 instead of the default 8081. For example:
https://<localhost>:8444
To change the SSL port:
Edit the Jetty configuration file to change the port property:
<Set name="port">8444</Set>
Configuring WebView to use both SSL and non-secure ports
You can configure WebView to use both the SSL port (8444) and the non-secure port
(for example, 8081) by further editing the em-jetty-config.xml file.
To use both the SSL and non-secure ports:
1. Open the em-jetty-config.xml file for editing.
2. Uncomment the following section:
<Call name="addConnector">
<Arg>
<New class="com.wily.webserver.NoNPESocketConnector">
<Set name="port">8081</Set>
<Set name="ThreadPool">
<New class="org.mortbay.thread.BoundedThreadPool">
<Set name="minThreads">10</Set>
<Set name="maxThreads">100</Set>
<Set name="maxIdleTimeMs">60000</Set>
</New>
</Set>
</New>
</Arg>
</Call>
3. Save and close the em-jetty-config.xml file.
4. Restart the Enterprise Manager.
Using WebView

22 WebView User Guide for SAP

Using WebView with SSL on AIX with IE6
Customers on AIX who have configured WebView to use SSL and whose users use
Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 IE 6 should use the TLS protocol instead of SSL. TLS is
another type of security protocol.
To configure IE6 to use the TLS protocol:
1. Click Tools > Internet Options...
2. Choose the Advanced tab.
3. In the dialog:
a. Uncheck Use SSL 2.0 and Use SSL 3.0.
b. Check Use TLS 1.0.
c. Click OK.
4. Open a new IE6 window and log in to Enterprise Manager using WebView again
(using the same port 443 or whatever you've configured).
Note: Checking Use TLS 1.0 will make it difficult for the user to access other websites
that use SSL.
The WebView interface
You view information using two WebView windows:
Introscope consoleshows data in dashboards, which contain charts, dials, graphs,
or other data viewers.
Investigatorshows all agents, domains and metrics in hierarchical form.
WebView does not support Investigator tab views as seen in the Java Web Start
interfacethat is, Overview, Errors, Traces and Search. To use these tabs, launch the
Investigator through Java Web Start. See the CA APM Workstation User Guide.
Using WebView

Chapter 2: Viewing Introscope Data in WebView 23

Installing the Silverlight plug-in
WebView requires the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in. Silverlight enables WebView to
display vector shapes, text, and embedded raster graphics.
If Silverlight is not available on your system, WebView prompts you to install it the first
time you open an Introscope console or Investigator window:

To install Silverlight:
1. Click the "Get Microsoft Silverlight" graphic.
2. Follow the prompts to install Silverlight.
More information:
Using WebView (see page 19)

The WebView Console
To access the WebView console:
Click the Console tab.
The WebView console provides views of application performance, using the dashboards
that are available from the Enterprise Manager which WebView is logged into.
You can view, but not edit, all information in the WebView console dashboards. Use the
Introscope Workstation to create and edit dashboards.
More information:
Viewing Introscope data in WebView console (see page 25)

Using WebView

24 WebView User Guide for SAP

The WebView Investigator
To access the Investigator:
Click the Investigator tab.
The WebView Investigator provides a hierarchical view of data collected by agents.

The Investigator has two panes:
The Investigator tree is a hierarchical structure that provides information about
each host and application managed by the Enterprise Manager to which WebView
is connected. The Investigator tree shows metrics from all connected agents.
The Preview pane shows a graphical view of data from the selected metric or
resource.
Note: The views in the WebView Investigator are the same as the Metric Browser
tab view provided by the full Introscope Investigator client application. The Triage
Map tab provided by the full Investigator is not available in WebView.
More information:

Use the Introscope Console Lens
Users with multiple agents often want to isolate and view data on a per-agent basis, but
this is difficult to do without creating multiple copies of dashboards, each one designed
to show data from a different agent. The Introscope console lens solves this problem by
enabling you to immediately apply the Introscope console lens to filter the data on the
dashboard when new agents connect.
When a filter is applied in the WebView console, it persists even when you view other
dashboards, switch back and forth from Investigator, or switch to Historical mode. The
console lens filtering persists until you take one of these actions:
use the Clear command.
close the WebView browser session window.
log out of WebView.
Note: Graphs powered by calculators are not supported in lensed dashboards.

Users with permissions for multiple domains see domain information for those
domains in the Investigator tree.
The Investigator tree contains two nodesSuperDomain and Domains:
The SuperDomain node compiles all agents and metrics for all defined Domains.
The Domains node sorts information into a resource for each domain. The resource
contains any agents mapped to that domain, and a Custom Metric Host for that
agent.
Metrics in the Investigator tree
The Investigator tree displays metric data reported by Introscope agents, organized by:
Hostthe host machine on which the agent is running
Processthe instance of the managed application running
Agentthe reporting agent
Resourcestandard J2EE components
MetricsMetric data generated by the ProbeBuilder Directives files (.pbd)
The metrics that automatically appear in the Investigator tree are generated by the
default ProbeBuilder Directives files (.pbd files), and depend on the activity of the
managed application. You can specify additional metric information to be generated by
creating custom tracers (see the CA APM Configuration and Administration Guide).
Metrics appear in the tree when data from that metric is first reported by the agent.
After that, the metric will be visible in the tree, even if new data is not being received
from the agent for that metric.
Viewing metric data in the Investigator

Chapter 2: Viewing Introscope Data in WebView 29

The illustration below identifies each of the nodes in the tree.

The Investigator tree in WebView displays an agent, resource, or metric which is shut off
or not reporting as a grayed-out icon. You cannot see the reason the element is
stopped, because agent/resource/metric settings cannot be viewed in WebView. Use
the Introscope Workstation to diagnose issues in metric, resource or agent reporting.
When you click a metric in the Investigator tree, its information appears in the
Investigator Preview pane on the right side of the WebView display.
Viewing automatic filtered views in the preview pane
When you select certain resources in the Investigator, they automatically show Top Ten
Filtered Views of metrics that match the metric grouping associated with the resource.
These metrics appear in a bar chart in the Investigator Preview pane. Some resources
that automatically show Top Ten matching metrics are Servlets, JSP, EJBs and JDBC.

You can also view the response times of the top 10 called components of a selected
Servlet, EJB, or JSP, as shown in the illustration below.

Note: If fewer than ten components are being monitored under a resource, you see only
the bars that correspond to the monitored components.
Troubleshooting Blurry Images in Some Browsers

WebView Data Viewers
Data Viewers are objects in the Investigator Preview pane or in a dashboard in the
WebView console that show data from a managed application in a visual form. Data is
displayed in a Data Viewer type that corresponds to the type of data.
Data Viewers in WebView can display data from a metric, or from a resource.
Data Viewer types
Depending on the type of metric or Element, Introscope can show the data in a Data
Viewer with the following Data Viewer display types.
WebView Data Viewers

32 WebView User Guide for SAP

Graph
Graphs plot values over time. In real-time views, the Graph dynamically displays the
most recent time period that fits in the graph.

If the graph displays an Alert, caution and danger thresholds appear as yellow and red
lines, respectively.
You can change the scale of graph charts while viewing live data, to see data in a more
readable view.
More information:
Getting and exporting more details from data viewers (see page 35)

WebView Data Viewers

Chapter 2: Viewing Introscope Data in WebView 33

Bar Chart
Bar charts display current data values as horizontal bars.

The bar chart is the default view for Top N Filtered Views.
If a bar chart is showing an Alert, the bars will be either green, yellow or red to
correspond to Alert status.
The bar chart is available for live data viewing only.
Graphic Equalizer
Graphic equalizers show the current value of the data, as well as recent high levels.

A graphic equalizer can only display data for a single metric.
The Graphic Equalizer viewer type is only seen in a WebView Console dashboard.
WebView Data Viewers

34 WebView User Guide for SAP

Dial Meter
Dial meters depict current data values as positions on a half-round dial.

The dial meter viewer type is only seen in a WebView Console dashboard.
String Viewer
String viewers can display a value as a line of text. String viewers allow some values to
display in a relatively small space. You can also use a String Viewer for simple values that
do not change, such as Launch Time or IP Address.

Text Viewer
Text viewers show the text for data when new values are added to old onesfor
example, a system or exception log.

WebView Data Viewers

Chapter 2: Viewing Introscope Data in WebView 35

Alert
An alert (formerly called a traffic light) displays one of three indicators corresponding to
conditions defined in the alert:
Green disc = status normal
Yellow diamond = caution threshold was crossed
Red octagon = danger threshold was crossed
Gray disc = the alert has no data.

An alert can also appear as a single symbol.
Getting and exporting more details from data viewers
The menu icon appears when you mouse over a viewer in the WebView console. You
can use the menu icon to access menus allowing you to see more detail about a data
viewer in the Console.
Note: The menu icon is available only on data viewers in the WebView console.
WebView Investigator does not support the menu icon.
To zoom in on a chart:
Click the menu icon:

When you click the menu icon:
The chart expands in the browser.
Three menus appear at the top of the chart:
Detail
Export
Scale
The rest of the dashboard is grayed out.
WebView Data Viewers

36 WebView User Guide for SAP

Using Tooltips
You can use tooltips to see more information about a particular data point in a data
viewer. Tooltips are accessible from viewers in normal mode in both the WebView
console and Investigator as well as in zoomed mode.
To use a tooltip to get more information about a data point:
Mouse over a data point, as shown in the illustration below:

Because of the way WebView applies user permissions, WebView tooltips will not
display the domain for a metric.
Using the Viewer Detail dialog
You can use the Viewer Detail dialog to see the following details about each of the
metrics displayed in a data viewer:
Full metric nameThe fully qualified metric name
MinThe lowest value recorded for that metric
AverageThe average value for that metric
MaxThe highest value recorded for that metric
LastThe most recent value recorded for that metric.
To see the Viewer Detail dialog:
1. Mouse over the chart to invoke the menu icon.
2. Click the menu icon.
WebView Data Viewers

Chapter 2: Viewing Introscope Data in WebView 37

3. Click the Detail menu.
The fully qualified names of all the metrics in the graph appear in table format, with
their corresponding Minimum, Average, Maximum, and Last values.
Note: If the metric name is truncated you can widen the metric name column to see
the full name, or hover over the metric name to open a pop-up box that shows the
full name.
Changing the scale of graph charts
You can change the scale of graph charts while viewing live data in Introscope WebView,
to provide a more readable view. You change the scale of a chart by setting a minimum
and maximum value for the chart's data axis.
The chart scaling feature is available only for graph charts in Live mode of the WebView
console. It is not available:
in Historical mode
for any other viewer type such as bar chart, top ten, or string viewer
from the Investigator.
Note: Scale changes that you make to a chart are temporarythe settings are not
saved with the dashboard. When you select a new dashboard or close the window,
Introscope discards the settings and returns to the scale options that were applied
when the dashboard was created.
To view the scale of a graph chart:
1. Mouse over the chart to invoke the menu icon.
2. Click the menu icon.
3. Click the Scale menu.
The Data Options dialog appears:

WebView Data Viewers

38 WebView User Guide for SAP

Setting the Auto Scale Minimum and Maximum default values provides a more readable
view of charts in Live mode.
To rescale using min and max values:
1. Enter the minimum and maximum values for the data axis of the graph.
2. Click OK.
For example, if the chart data values lie primarily between 350 and 550 but the
chart value axis shows 0-1000, it might be helpful to set the scale Min value to 300
and Max value to 600 for a better view of the relevant data.
To force minimum and maximum values:
1. Select Pin at on both the Minimum and Maximum sides of the dialog, and enter a
value for the minimum and maximum points of the data access.
2. Click OK.
Setting Min and Max values for a chart showing live data is risky, however, if there is a
chance the data may exceed the values you set. To avoid this problem, use the Auto
Scale option to automatically set the graph to change its scale according to the data it
displays.
To rescale using Auto Scale:
1. Select AutoScale on both the Minimum and Maximum sides of the dialog.
2. Click OK.
The resulting chart's data axis is reset based on the data in the chart, as shown in the
illustration below. This often results in sharper valleys and peaks in the graph display.
You can also set the scaling options to Auto Expand. This option uses 0 as the bottom of
the data axis and automatically expands and scales the data axis to display all data for
the time range.
To rescale using Auto Expand:
1. Choose Auto Expand on both the Minimum and Maximum side of the dialog.
2. Click OK.
Export data to CSV file
In WebView, you can export a snapshot of current data in a Data Viewer to a
comma-separated values (.csv) file for use laterfor example, you might want to
analyze this data in an external program. You can export data from all Data Viewer types
except the alert.
WebView Data Viewers

Chapter 2: Viewing Introscope Data in WebView 39

To export data from a Data Viewer:
1. Mouse over the chart to invoke the menu icon.
2. Click the menu icon.
3. Click the Export menu.
A Save As dialog opens, allowing you to save the data for the Data Viewer in .csv
format.
Viewing historical data in WebView
As you monitor your managed application, live data views change continuously to show
you the most recent data. You can also select a range of time to view historical data, to
help you identify the time a problem occurred:

To view historical data in the WebView console or the Investigator, you select a time
range. When you select a time range, Introscope immediately shows the data for that
range.
Note: WebView displays data points for live and historical data, but does not display the
count (total) of data points. Use Workstation to view the count of historical data points.
To view historical data:
1. Select the metric or dashboard for which to view historical data.
2. Select a time range for the historical view from the Time Range drop-down menu.
Introscope shows the data for that range, using the duration that you selected from
the Time Range drop-down menu and setting the end time to the current time.
Note: If your historical time range includes a year, a four-digit year is required.
3. Click Reset if you want to reset the end time of the range to the current time.
WebView Data Viewers

40 WebView User Guide for SAP

Defining a custom time range
To define a custom time range to view historical data:
1. Select the metric or dashboard for which you want to see historical data.
2. Select Custom Range from the Time Range drop-down menu.
The Historical Range window opens.
3. Enter start and end dates and times for the historical view, and click OK.

Chapter 3: Viewing and Tracing Transactions in WebView 41

Chapter 3: Viewing and Tracing
Transactions in WebView

You use the Introscope WebView Transaction Viewer to trace the activity of transactions
as they flow through a Java Virtual Machine. You can also query and view historical
transactions, and view any transactions that are currently being monitored by agents.
This section contains the following topics:
About the WebView Transaction Viewer (see page 41)
Querying historical data (see page 41)
Starting a New Transaction Trace Session (see page 42)
Viewing the transaction trace (see page 44)
Viewing current transaction traces (see page 45)
Stopping and restarting a transaction trace (see page 48)
Saving Transaction Trace data as XML (see page 49)
About the WebView Transaction Viewer
You use the Transaction Viewer to:
Query and view historical data. See Querying historical data (see page 41).
Start a new transaction trace session to capture new data.
Tracing transactions helps you reduce the time to identify the problem component
in a transaction, by enabling you to trace the activity of transactions as they flow
through the boundaries of a Java Virtual Machine. See Starting a New Transaction
Trace Session (see page 42).
View any transactions that are currently being monitored by agents. See Viewing
current transaction traces (see page 45).
Querying historical data
Transaction Viewer session results are automatically stored in the Transaction Event
Database. The Transaction Event database enables you to query the saved events for
traces matching certain criteria.
Note: Be sure that you run some Transaction Trace sessions before you use the
historical query, so that there is data to query.
Starting a New Transaction Trace Session

42 WebView User Guide for SAP

The WebView Transaction Viewer's historical query syntax enables a variety of searches.
You can:
query by specific fields: Domain, Agent, Host, Process, etc. (host:server3)
use wildcards: enter any fragment of a search term and the asterisk to find anything
that contains the search term
use boolean logic to combine search terms ("AND", "OR", "NOT" and "()" groupings)
use remove from results: Use "+JDBC -CICS" to look for transactions with JDBC but
no CICS
To query historical data:
1. In Introscope WebView, click Transaction Viewer.
The Transaction Viewer opens.
2. Open the drop-down list and choose Historical Query.
3. In the Query field, enter the query terms, then click Go.
The Transaction Viewer shows the results of your query.
4. Select a transaction to open the component details pane.
The components pane opens when you select a transaction, and offers four views
of the transaction's componentsSummary, Tree, Trace, and Transaction Details.

collect and report Transaction Trace data.
which agents to tracetransactions from one or more agents, or all supported
agents.
You can filter the transaction trace session to reduce the number of results returned
and thus lower the amount of overhead on your system. You can filter the session by:
threshold execution time (in seconds or milliseconds)
specific values for transaction trace data typeUser ID, HTTP request headers,
request parameters, session attributes, session ID, URLs, and URL Query strings
