Tutorial: Using Hyperic to Configure and Manage tc Runtime Instances

This tutorial describes the basic steps for configuring and monitoring a tc Runtime instance with the Hyperic user interface and for managing applications deployed to the instance.

  1. Before You Begin

  2. Restart a tc Runtime Instance

  3. Reconfigure a tc Runtime Instance

  4. Deploy a Web Application to a tc Runtime Instance

  5. Add a tc Runtime Instance to the Favorite Resources Portlet

  6. Create an Hyperic Group of Multiple tc Runtime Instances

  7. Monitor a tc Runtime Instance

  8. View, Configure, or Disable the Preconfigured Deadlock Detection Alert

Before You Begin

Install and start the components of vFabric tc Server (Hyperic Server, Hyperic Agent, and at least one tc Runtime instance); invoke the Hyperic user interface in your browser; and log in with the administration username/password (default hqadmin/hqadmin) or with Hyperic user permissions to configure a tc Runtime instance. To accomplish these tasks, see:

Most Hyperic user interface pages have a Help link at the top-right corner. On the tc Runtime configuration pages, click the icon to the right of each field to get information about the field.

For simplicity, it is assumed in this tutorial that you are going to log in to the Hyperic user interface as the superuser (hqadmin). If, however, you are going to log in as a non-superuser, see "User Permissions Required to Use the tc Server Hyperic Plugin Features" in vFabric tc Server Administration for information about the required Hyperic user permissions to be able to use all the tc Server Hyperic plug-in features described in this tutorial.
