PE performance monitoring

Are there any 3rd party performance monitoring and/or metrics
applications available for PE?

Thanks,

Perl scripts that scrape PE log files? 🙂

HI Brian--

You can use Apache JMeter to monitor performance for PE. It's been a while since I did it, so the details are fuzzy, but I don't remember it being too difficult to hook it up. It's worth looking into.

Thanks for the replies on this. I took a look at Apache JMeter, but it
appeared to me to be used to test performance, with the emphasis on
test. I'm looking more for something that might help me see performance
of PE during actual usage, so when users are asking why PE isn't
responding as fast as they'd like, I can refer to some data that shows
how many requests came in around that time, size of the files, how long
the requests were taking, etc.
I'm aware of the transaction list and usage report web tools, and have
actually customized the transaction list to show transaction duration
and file size, but the more I add to or customize it, the more I wonder
if there's not already something out there that does what I want? Maybe
I didn't catch all that's possible with JMeter to monitor performance?

In the absence of something like that, has anyone customized request
handlers on PE to store info like how many of the sub-processes are in
use when a transaction occurs, or any other customizing that helps with
performance monitoring?

Thanks,

Someone ... I can see his face ... can't pull the name right now ...
developed a screen scraping tool that analyzed and maybe logged over time
an existing PE status page. Colin? I don't know if you've looked at that
page and the process reporting that it does or not, but if that info "in
real time" might help you, you could look down that path.

I never saw it, I just remember him talking about it.
