Tuning Oracle WebLogic JVM

When trying to improve Oracle WebLogic server performances, scalability and reliability, tuning JVM (Java Virtual Machine) is probably the most important step. However, this is usually far from being an easy task. JVM tuning includes selecting the right JVM, setting the appropriate heap size, selecting the most appropriate GC (garbage collector) strategy, etc. An in-depth discussion is beyond the scope of this post, we will just get familiar with the basic steps:

Oracle Node Manager brief overview

In this blog post I will provide a brief introduction on one of the important components of Oracle WebLogic Server called Oracle Node Manager. WebLogic Server instances are in production environment often highly distributed, usually across multiple domains, machines, or even geographic locations. Oracle Node Manager is intended to simplify and centralize control options over those distributed instances. It provides us with abilities to start, stop or restart Administration Server and various Managed Server instances from remote location using a graphical interface. Node manager is optional, but highly recommended in WebLogic Server environment. It is one of the key features of Oracle Cloud Application Grid technologies.

The use of OSB 11g service result caching feature

OSB 11g (Oracle Service Bus 11g ) provides an interesting feature called service result caching through the use of Oracle Coherence in-memory data grid solution. In this way we can dramatically improve performances of business services if the response  is relatively static.

To enable the use of service result caching globally using the OSB console, we have to open the Operations | Global Settings and set the Result Caching to true.

To enable service result caching on a particular business service, we open the Project Explorer and click on the business service. On the Configuration Details tab, we scroll down and edit the Message Handling Configuration. Then we expand the Advanced Settings. We select the Result Caching checkbox. Next, we have to specify the cache token, which uniquely identifies a particular cache result. This is usually an ID field.  We can also set the cache expiration time.


Then we click Next and Save.

Now if the business service locates cache result through a cache key, it returns this result to the client instead of invoking an external service. If the result is not cached (or has expired), the business service invokes the external service, returns the result to the client, and stores the result in cache.

Service result caching works only when the business service is invoked from a proxy service!
