In this series of blogs, we will present you a demonstration of capabilities of IBM’s latest platform for business management, introduced earlier this year, that includes tools such as Process Designer, Process Center and Integration Developer. In this first post, we will get to know the entire platform and see how mentioned tools are meant to work together.

High Performance Extensible Logging

HPEL or High Performance Extensible Logging is a new feature of IBM WebSphere Application Server version 8.0. It provides efficient logging and tracing utilities for storing and accessing log, trace, system.err and system.out data. It is an alternative to java.util.logging logger that was used as a logging utility on WAS.

HPEL stores and processes log and trace records in a binary form which is the main reason for its efficiency. As you can see in the figure below (source IBM Publib), primarily HPEL engine forwards streams into two repositories (log and trace). Text format is also supported but should be disabled when performance is a key concern.


If we want to use HPEL we must firstly enable it and secondly configure it.
