Quick overview

The TrueSight Middleware and Transaction Monitor product enables application specialists and middleware administrators to monitor and manage their middleware applications across multiple technologies and platforms.

  • Following the setup of policies, technology specialists can access end-to-end middleware transaction tracing and analyse historical data to assess trends, enabling them to  anticipate problems before they occur.
  • Customizable dashboards show how captured metrics relate to the application flow, enabling application specialists to assess the overall health of their applications. 

For more information, see the Using and Administering sections 

There are two main consoles used in this product; the Monitor Console, which enables you to set up your policies, configure and monitor your environment, and setup dashboards and views, and the TrueSight Middleware Administrator (TSMA), which enables you to administer your middleware environment. 

TrueSight Middleware Administrator (TSMA) has been rebranded to MainView Middleware Administrator (MVMA). Note that TMTM supports TSMA 8.1 and 8.2, and MVMA 9.0.

This wiki includes references to both TSMA and MVMA, as both are currently supported by TMTM 8.1.
