From DeveloperWorks, Use ARM to monitor SCA invocations in IBM WebSphere Process Server
This two-part series shows you how to monitor Service Component Architecture
(SCA) invocations using the Application Response Measurement (ARM) standard in IBM
WebSphere Process Server V6.1. You can use an ARM implementation, such as IBM Tivoli
Composite Application Manager for Response Time Tracking, to generate a graphic view
of SCA invocations. This article, Part 1 of the series, starts by describing ARM and
showing you how to debug synchronous scenarios using Tivoli Composite Application
Manager for Response Time Tracking. In Part 2, you’ll get an introduction to SCA
invocation patterns and learn how to debug asynchronous scenarios.
Finally, something that can tell you at the SCA level how your components are running on a production server. This is an important step in the maturation of SCA.
