Monitoring PeopleSoft applications

PeopleSoft’s applications help to improve and maintain critical relationships with customers and employees. By enabling PeopleSoft monitoring, the appliance monitors the web pages (HTTP request and responses) being passed between the client and the server. Any critical business processes delivered by PeopleSoft applications are monitored. Metrics and data from these processes are displayed in the web console.

Configuring the Peoplesoft options controls which URLs are treated as Peoplesoft requests. Hits with URLs that match any regular expressions (configured on the Peoplesoft page) are processed by the appliance to reconstruct the user's actions based on the sequence of Peoplesoft URLs and then determine the performance of these user actions. These Peoplesoft user actions display in the Page category.

Monitoring PeopleSoft applications

Configuring PeopleSoft monitoring involves defining a set of regular expressions and installing a set of pre-defined configuration settings.

1
Navigate to the Configuring > Applications > PeopleSoft.
2
Enter a Perl regular expression in the box. For example, if you know where the PeopleSoft applications are located (all components are found under quest.com/mypeoplesoft/support/), enter the expression (in this case, quest.com/mypeoplesoft/support/.*).
Alternatively, if you don’t know where application components are located, click the Pick a Directory link to display a window that lists the directories in use on your site.

In the PeopleSoft Configuration Settings section, click Apply to install pre-defined configuration settings.

Configuring how URLs display

When PeopleSoft monitoring is configured, the appliance records when information is transmitted to and from the server. You can define how the URLs display in the appliance using several options. For example, you can display request methods (POST, GET) in URLs by setting the Show HTTP request methods in URL option using the Advanced Options on the URL page. For more information, see Advanced URL options.

PeopleSoft as well as other applications encode their URLs. For ease of use, you can decide whether to display URLs encoded or decoded. For information about displaying URLs in the web console, see Encoded and decoded URLs.

.

When you apply the pre-defined configuration settings, the system automatically populates a list of default variable rules. You can customize a variable rule defining how the system will transform the query segments of URLs. For more information, see Managing variable rules.

Monitoring Siebel applications

Siebel’s customer relationship management application enables organizations to automate particular aspects of a business streamlining the processes which affect the overall bottom and top line of the business.

You can enable the appliance to monitor activities performed by the Siebel application server and report statistics about these user activities.

Configuring the Siebel options controls which URLs are treated as Siebel requests. Hits with URLs that match any regular expressions (configured on the Siebel page) are processed by the appliance to reconstruct the user's actions based on the sequence of Siebel URLs and then determines the performance of these user actions. These Siebel user actions display in the Page category.
