IntelliCheck proactively monitors, analyzes and notifies you of potential outage conditions.
IntelliCheck watches for patterns that can cause an outage and warns you before they actually do. Applicare doesn't require any instrumentation to discover unusual patterns. It analyzes information already provided by WebLogic.
With IntelliCheck there’s no need to set thresholds. IntelliCheck uses a built-in knowledge base to determine what conditions can cause outages or a reduction in performance.
IntelliCheck, coupled with Detector and Blackbox, virtually automates the process of root-cause analysis. Applicare automatically detects WebLogic failure conditions in production and auto-analyzes the WebLogic state (using thousands of matrices) to generate a root-cause analysis report instantly. Additionally, IntelliCheck will generate an e-mail that not only tells you that the WebLogic server failed, but that also tells you why.
In this way you get all of the information you need even though the incident may have happened in the middle of the night while you were sleeping. Applicare can analyze thousands of matrices almost instantly, something that would take you significant time to do on your own. Applicare drills down to the transaction level in determining the root cause and identifies the culprit transactions. This is what makes Applicare for WebLogic an extremely useful tool.
On top of that, IntelliCheck is an unobtrusive way to monitor WebLogic. The IntelliCheck technology generates negligible overhead because it is designed from the ground up with high performance and least impact in mind. The overhead in most cases is so low that it is almost immeasurable.
"Applicare simplifies laborious and time consuming
process of tuning WebLogic down to just a couple of clicks. In
addition to its auto tuning capabilities, Applicare provides simple
and efficient tools for monitoring WebLogic. With the best-practices
knowledge that is embedded in Advisor and its root cause analysis
capabilities, Applicare can help customers get a lot more out of their investment."
