Previously on WLSDM blog, we announced our products new release with “New Release WLSDM 3.7.1 and WL-OPC 1.2.0 is common available!” post.

WLSDM and WL-OPC release offers a complete Oracle FMW product stack monitoring infrastructure for your FMW domains and their system components and instances. In this blog post, we have created another tutorial to learn how to monitor and diagnose Oracle Traffic Director (OTD) Components and Instances.

First of all, let’s talk about that “What is Oracle Traffic Director?”.

What is Oracle Traffic Director(OTD)?

Oracle Traffic Director (OTD) implements a layer-7 software load balancer. Similar to the Apache Web server, the OTD can be used for reliable HTTP, HTTPS and also (this is different from Apache) TCP communication. OTD acts as a reverse proxy and/or load-balancer to application server clusters sitting in the core network (backend). Oracle Traffic Director provides different load-balancing methods and rules. Like other web-server, it also supports caching. OTD also supports a number of additional quality of service features. Instances of Oracle Traffic Director can be grouped together to form active-active or active-passive clusters.
