Goal

OSWatcher, "OSW," is a tool that is easily installed that will automatically gather OS-level information periodically, archiving it in a very convenient form that can be easily attached to an SR.  The default script runs the following commands every 15 seconds: iostat, meminfo, mpstat, netstat, ps, slabinfo, top, and vmstat. This information can be used in proactively gathering run-time statistics for a server which can be invaluable when troubleshooting an issue.

An extension framework was added in OSW 6.0 that allows external scripts to be run within the same scheduling and archiving structure. Now, a PeopleSoft Administrator can easily gather domain information as well. This document demonstrates how to extend the capabilities of OWSbb by writing scripts to monitor PeopleSoft Tuxedo Application Server Domains and how to insert them into the OSW extension framework.
