    hello guys,

    Well, there are different levels of monitoring:
    * up & running -> standard OS level monitoring can do this
    * quickly and properly responding -> HTTP monitoring (e.g. ITCAM for RTT -
    enterprise-grade, not free)
    * why slow, etc -> J2EE monitoring (e.g. ITCAM for WAS - enterprise-grade,
    not free)

    As the WebSphere performance framework is based on JMX, any JMX capable tool
    can audit the counters and report on that.

    So, there is no free tool which I can use?( at certain time, the app seems to be extremely slow, I just want to know why)

    The question is, what about the app is 'slow'? How do you know it is
    slow/ are you doing some sort of measurement and where in the end to end
    application? If you don't measure at a variety of points along the way
    it is sometimes hard to determine exactly what is wrong. You could tune
    the app and WAS all you want, if the network is slow, it won't do much
    good. If you are confident it is not the network you have to start
    monitoring the various resource WAS and the app are using.

    I work on the ITCAM family of products which are not free so
    might not be appropriate for your situation. However, they do provide a
    lot of information and one even goes down to method call level.

    You can use TPV built-in WebSphere application server itself. If you need to analyse the heapdumps/coredumps then use heapanalyzer.
