Candle Corp. is offering versions of its Omegamon Extended Edition system performance monitoring and reporting tools tuned for IBMs WebSphere.

Omegamon XE for WebSphere Application Server, released earlier this month, is designed to help application developers and operations managers test WebSphere application performance during implementation and deployment.

The new Omegamon XE WebSphere monitor can watch up to 300 server attributes, ranging from servlets and JavaServer Pages to EJBs (Enterprise JavaBeans).

Users can choose to display reports on statistics such as memory usage, EJB response times or application threads as pie charts, graphs or other visual elements, according to Candle officials in Los Angeles.

The new Omegamon XE tool is available now and can manage WebSphere servers running on Windows NT, AIX and Solaris.

It is slated to be available on OS/390 in the first quarter of next year.

The software is priced starting at $3,000 per processor. An average configuration will be about $17,000 for the distributed version and $129,000 for OS/390.
