Configuring web application statistics monitoring with BAM

Carryout the following steps, to configure web application statistics monitoring:

Step 1: Start the Application Server

  1. Before starting AS carryout the following actions:

    • Go to {AS_HOME}/repository/conf/ and open carbon.xml
      Look for <offset>0</offset> and change it 1.
    • Go to {AS_HOME}/repository/conf/etc/ and open bam.xml.
      Look for <WebappDataPublishing>disable</WebappDataPublishing> and enable it.
  2. Start the Application Server. For more information, see Starting the server.

Step 2: Start the Business Activity Monitor

  1. Start BAM. For more information, see Starting the server.
  2. If you need to change databases which stores statistic data: 
    • Create a database.
    • Configure the database in {BAM_HOME}/repository/conf/datasources/master-datasources.xml as WSO2BAM_DATASOURCE.

Step 3: Configure the Application Server (AS)

  1. Log into the AS management console. 

    Webapp data publishing settings need to be configured separately for the tenants.

  2. On the Configure tab, click Webapp Data Publishing.

  3. Select the Enable webapp stats option.
  4. Leave the Stream Name, Version, Nick Name, Description as it is.
    If you need to change the latter fields, you will have to make some more changes in the tool box and hive script. 
  5. Enter the Receiver URL.
    This refers to the Thrift URL. This is normally tcp://{host}:7611. If you need to use SSL for this the URL will be tcps://{host}:7711. If you change the offset of the BAM server to 1, both ports will be incremented by 1 (7612, 7712)
  6. Enter the Cassandra Username. 
  7. Enter the Cassandra Password.
  8. Click Update to successfully configure the AS for Data publishing to BAM.

Step 4: Configuring the web application that need monitoring

Use either one of the following approaches to configure the web application before deploying any web application, to make AS ready to publish the data to BAM.
