OIM monitoring check-list

Systematic monitoring of OIM deployments helps to reduce risk of both technical and security related issues. It also can help to avoid performance degradation that can happen because of data growth over time. This post presents a set of topics about OIM and WebLogic monitoring, and it presents tools that can be used for both monitoring and diagnostic.This list is not intended to replace any official product documentation, instead, it should be used in conjunction with it.

This is another post in the OIM academy series. You can check the complete series here.

OAM LDAP connections through firewalls

In a previous post, we discussed some of the complications that can occur when a firewall is placed between WebGates and OAM Servers in a typical deployment. This post follows on from that discussion, to explore an analogous topic- firewalls between the OAM Server and the LDAP Identity Store. This post is part of a larger series on Oracle Access Manager 11g called Oracle Access Manager Academy. An index to the entire series with links to each of the separate posts is available.
