Preface

JBoss Operations Network 3.1.2 provides an integrated solution for managing JBoss middleware, other network infrastructure, and applications built on Red Hat Enterprise Application Platform (EAP).
This manual covers planning and procedures for installing JBoss ON servers and agents and upgrading existing JBoss ON systems. This Installation Guide is intended for JBoss ON administrators.

1. JBoss Operations Network Overview

JBoss Operations Network has four major components, which work together to create the management platform:
  • The JBoss ON servers, which centralize configuration and connect the components
  • An SQL database (PostgreSQL or Oracle) which stores JBoss ON configuration settings and resource-related data, including content packages, the resource inventory, and monitoring data
  • Local agents installed on managed platforms, which connect with servers to receive resource configuration updates and which collect and send monitoring data
  • The JBoss ON GUI, which is a web-based interface that allows users to connect to any JBoss ON server, from any location, to view resource data and perform management tasks
