IBM Integration Bus Logging Agent

Plug and play, no changes to the existing solutions if you emit IBM Monitoring Events

IBM® Integration Bus can be configured to emit an IBM Monitoring Event (technical, informational and payload details). Events are typically emitted to support transaction monitoring, transaction auditing, and business process monitoring.

TIP: Use the Non Events Agent to make sure you get alerted whenever there is data outage and/or use the IBM MQ Monitoring Agent to monitor destination queues for events not being consumed by the Nodinite IBM Integration Bus Logging Agent (due to network or changes in security/firewall, etc. etc.).

What can I do with the Nodinite IBM Integration Bus Logging Agent?

Log business transactions from your IBM Integration Bus workflows

Nodinite can consume IBM Monitoring Events complete with payload and variables available from any shape. These logs provide correlation Ids which makes it very easy for you to get the whole picture for individual runs. Combine this with other tracked properties in your other workflows and you get true end to end logging across all platforms and solutions.

Monitor all your IBM Integration Bus workflows

You will only need 1 Nodinite license still you can log all data and thereby any faults. To get alerts from logged data you also need to use Nodinite Non Events Monitoring Agent

Learn from mistakes

Nodinite makes statistics available through the Web API that can be further used with custom Power BI Reports. Learn and visualize or just get the KPI's of interest.

Make your organization aware of the problem

When Nodinite detects a problem with your IBM Integration Bus workflows an alert can be distributed using any of the built-in Alarm plugins to get you or the responsible organization aware and involved.

Share the data

With Nodinite your end-users can view the output from your IBM Integration Bus workflows. Simply share Log Views available from the Web Client using role based security.

Stay secure

Nodinite has Role based security and enables you to restrict access down to individual events from the IBM Integration Bus Logging Agent using Log Views. We at Nodinite think it is wise to limit the number of power users (administrators) from having direct access to servers and services. All operations in Nodinite are being audited.

Enable logging without changing existing solutions

There is no need to code or change anything within your existing IBM Integration Bus workflows. If you want or need to have better control over what gets logged you can always code and emit Log Events.


Frequently asked questions

Common problems and FAQ for the Nodinite IBM Integration Bus Logging Agent can be found in the Troubleshooting page.

How do I know how much data my IBM Integration Bus workflows create?

Nodinite has a smart way to group your Log Events and you know by either looking directly in the Web Client or you can customize and automate this further through the Web API and that data can be used within your Power BI Reports.
