I love to see the kind of knowledge we’re able to share with customers at BP3.  Dave Rosen from our BP Labs group has shared a great writeup of BPM Monitoring:

The Basics:

  • Remote protocol checks – Basic network services
  • OS server settings
  • Applciation server settings
  • JVM settings
  • Database settings
  • Miscellaneous non-BPM items
  • Specific BPM parameters related to your specific processes.

Generally, not all of these settings can be implemented at once or in all cases, but each area listed has specific reasons to be monitored.  Also, the settings for the thresholds for each of the monitors should be determined on a case by case basis.  Some applications have a high load whereas others may not be.  This means each of these settings may need to be tuned for your environment.

Of course, this is BP3 we’re talking about, and the BP Labs team, so we don’t just stop with the basics…
