How to configure Splunk to monitor IBM WebSphere Application Server?

We need some guidance on how to configure Splunk to monitor IBM WebSphere Application Server and apps hosted on it.

We’ve installed

  1. Splunk monitoring software on a Ubuntu VM.
  2. Splunk Add-on for Java Management Extensions (JMX) (splunkbase.splunk.com/app/2647)
  3. Splunk Add-on for IBM WebSphere Application Server (splunkbase.splunk.com/app/2789)

We could not configure add-on to connect to WebSphere. (docs.splunk.com/Documentation/AddOns/released/JMX/Configureinput)
Please guide us to configure splunk to monitor IBM WAS..

We do not know what values we should be entering on “Add Server” screen.
We tried following values for jmx_url:

  1. service:jmx:iiop:///jndi/corbaname:iiop::9100/WsnAdminNameService#JMXConnector
  2. service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://:9100/jmxrmi
  3. service:jmx:iiop://10.55.68.60:2809/jndi/JMXConnector : This options results in following errors: 06-09-2017 17:43:07.286 +0530 INFO IndexerIf - Asked to add or update bucket manifest values, bid=_internal~19~04FD6225-5ABD-4E92-A012-DA018F2F2434 06-09-2017 17:43:07.402 +0530 INFO DatabaseDirectoryManager - idx=_internal Writing a bucket manifest in hotWarmPath='/opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk/_internaldb/db', pendingBucketUpdates=1 .

Verify that you have the IBM JRE installed that is appropriate to your CPU. You do not need the whole JDK (Java Development Kit), just the JRE (Java Runtime Environment).

For Linux and various other OSes on various CPUs, that is here...

@raj_mpl - asking questions of your own on an unanswered year-old question is highly unlikely to get you any useful advice. Please submit your own, carefully worded question, showing what you have tried, and what your specific issue is.
