The following sections describe the prerequisites to publish statistics related to the processing in WSO2 EI to WSO2 EI Analytics.

Running WSO2 EI Analytics

For instructions on how to run WSO2 EI Analytics, see Starting EI Analytics.

Note

WSO2 EI should run simultaneously with the WSO2 EI Analytics. For instructions on how to run WSO2 EI, see Running the Product.

Configuring datasources

The datasources of WSO2 EI Analytics are by default configured with the H2 database type. If you configure them with the MSSQL database type, add the SendStringParametersAsUnicode property to the database connection URL in the data source configuration in the <EI_HOME>/wso2/analytics/conf/datasources/analytics-datasources.xml file as shown below to avoid deadlock issues that are caused when the same table row is updated in two or more sessions at the same time.

<url>SQLSERVER_JDBC_URL;SendStringParametersAsUnicode=false</url>

Enabling tracing/statistics for the mediation flow

Enable mediation statistics and message tracing by configuring the <EI_HOME>/conf/synapse.properties file as described below. 

In a clustered deployment, the following configurations should be done for each node in the EI cluster.

 

PropertyRequired ValuePurpose
mediation.flow.statistics.enabletrue

Set this property to true and enable statistics for the required ESB artifact, to record information such as the following.

  • The time spent on each mediator.
  • The time spent to process each message.
  • The fault count of a single message flow.
mediation.flow.statistics.tracer.collect.payloadstrue

Set this property to true and enable tracing for the required ESB artifact, to record the message payload before and after the mediation performed by individual mediators.

mediation.flow.statistics.tracer.collect.properties

true

Set this property to true and enable tracing for the required ESB artifact, to record the following information.

  • Message context properties.
  • Message transport-scope properties. 
mediation.flow.statistics.collect.alltrue/false

Set this property to true and set the mediation.flow.statistics.enable property also to true, to enable mediation statistics for all the artifacts in the ESB profile by default.

If you set this property to false, you need to set the mediation.flow.statistics.enable property to true and manually enable statistics for the required ESB artifact.

Configuring WSO2 EI Analytics

The required configuration details described below are available by default. Follow this section to understand the Analytics related configurations used in the process, and do any modifications if required. In a clustered deployment, the following configurations should be checked for each Enterprise Integrator node in the cluster.

This step involves providing the information required by WSO2 EI to publish data to WSO2 EI Analytics in order to analyze the data via the Analytics Dashboard. An event publisher is configured with the URL to which WSO2 EI related information are published as events.

Follow the procedure below to configure EI Analytics.

  1. Open the <EI_HOME>/repository/deployment/server/eventpublishers/MessageFlowConfigurationPublisher.xml file, and enter relevant configurations as described in the table below. This file is used to enter the information required to publish WSO2 EI data to the WSO2 EI Analytics server.

    PropertyRequired ValueExample
    usernameThe username to be used when accessing the WSO2 EI Analytics server to publish configurations.admin
    passwordThe password to be used when accessing the WSO2 EI Analytics server to publish configurations.admin
    receiverURLThe URL of the thrift port to which the EI configurations should be published. The format of the URL is as follows.
    tcp://<localhost>:<THRIFT_PORT>
    tcp://localhost:7612
  2. Open the <EI_HOME>/repository/deployment/server/eventpublishers/MessageFlowStatisticsPublisher.xml file, and do the configurations and specified in the table below. 

    PropertyRequired ValueExample
    usernameThe username to be used when accessing the WSO2 EI Analytics server to publish statistics.admin
    passwordThe password to be used when accessing the WSO2 EI Analytics server to publish statistics.admin
    receiverURLThe URL of the thrift port to which the EI statistics should be published. The format of the URL is as follows.
    tcp://<localhost>:<THRIFT_PORT>
    tcp://localhost:7612
  3. Change the hostname to the actual hostname in the <EI_HOME>/wso2/analytics/repository/deployment/server/jaggeryapps/portal/configs/designer.json file as follows. 

    This step avoids the host verification errors that can occur when multiple WSO2 product instances publish statistics.

        },
        "host": {
            "hostname": "localhost",
            "port": "",
            "protocol": ""
        }

Running WSO2 EI

WSO2 Enterprise Integrator should run simultaneously with the WSO2 EI Analytics server. For instructions on how to run a WSO2 product, see Running the Product.

Enabling tracing/statistics for EI artifacts

Note that it is not recommended to enable tracing in production environments. Therefore, be sure that you only enable statistics in production.

You can select the specific proxy services, REST APIs, sequences and endpoints that you want to monitor via WSO2 EI Analytics by enabling statistics for them. To enable statistics for an individual artifact, you need to click the Enable Statistics link for it in the EI Management Console. See the following sections for detailed information on enabling statistics for the required artifact types.

In a clustered deployment, statistics should be enabled for the required artifacts in all the EI nodes if you have not enabled deployment synchronizing. If deployment synchronising is enabled, you need to enable statistics for the required artifacts only in one node.

For example, you can enable statistics for a proxy service as described below.

  1. Start WSO2 EI and log into the Management Console.
  2. In the Main tab, look for the Services section and click List  under the same section to open the Deployed Services page. Then click on the required proxy service as shown below.
     
  3. Click Enable Statistics and Enable Tracing links. Click OK in the information message that appears to confirm that statistics/tracing is enabled.

The following table specifies the path to the Enable Statistics link for each EI artifact type that can be analyzed using the Analytics Dashboard.


EI Artifact TypePath
Proxy ServiceMain tab => Services => List => Deployed Services page => <Proxy_Service_Name>
REST APIMain tab => APIs => Deployed APIs page
SequenceMain tab => Sequences => Mediation Sequences page
EndpointMain tab => Endpoints => Manage Endpoints page
Inbound EndpointMain tab => Inbound Endpoints => Manage Inbound Endpoints page

If you have worker nodes configured in your deployment, use WSO2 EI Tooling to enable message tracing/statistics as follows. (You need to set the value of the Trace Enabled and Statistics Enabled options to true in the Properties tab of the artifact.)
