Back Cover

This IBM Redbook will help you install, tailor, and configure the new IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Transaction Performance Version 5.2, which will assist you in determining the business performance of your e-business transactions in terms of responsiveness, performance, and availability.

The major enhancement in Version 5.2 is the addition of state-of-the-art industry strength monitoring functions for J2EE applications hosted by WebSphere Application Server or BEA Weblogic. In addition, the architecture of Web Transaction Monitoring (WTP) has been redesigned to provide for even easier deployment, increased scalability, and better performance. Also, the reporting functions have been enhanced by the addition of ETL2s for the Tivoli Enterprise Date Warehouse.

This new version of IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Transaction Performance provides all the capabilities of previous versions of IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Transaction Performance, including the Enterprise Transaction Performance (ETP) functions used to add transaction performance monitoring capabilities to the Tivoli Management Environment (with the exception of reporting through Tivoli Decision Support). The reporting functions have been migrated to the Tivoli Enterprise Date Warehouse environment.

Because the ETP functions has been documented in detail in the Redbook Unveil Your e-business Transaction Performance with IBM TMTP 5.1, SG24-6912, this publication is devoted to the Web Transaction Performance functions of IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Transaction Performance Version 5.2, and, in particular, the J2EE monitoring capabilities.
