(Doc ID 2252237.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 15, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 10.3.6 to 10.3.6
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

As a person responsible for administrating applications deployed on Weblogic Server you may want to know if there is a way to receive an notification when Weblogic servers are not running. There are a number of commercially available enterprise monitoring tools that can be used for this purpose, but if your budget doesn't allow you to invest in those products, you can leverage Weblogic built-in functionality - WebLogic Diagnostic Framework (WLDF) to achieve what you desire. For details about WLDF, refer to https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24329_01/web.1211/e24426/architecture.htm#WLDFC115.

One of the features of WLDF is Watch and Notification. You can configure server(s) with watch condition and respective notification(s) to be sent if the watch conditions are met. There are a number of Notification types and this document is focused on SMTP Notification using emails. For details about Watch and Notification refer to https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24329_01/web.1211/e24426/config_watch_notif.htm#WLDFC188

In this document, I am going to illustrate how to configure WLDF to sent out an email notification when one or more servers within a Weblogic domain is down and not in RUNNING state.
