You can configure the tc Runtime parameters.


In the vCenter Hyperic user interface, select Resources > Browse.

There are four tc Runtime configuration pages, three of which have their own tab beneath the main Views > Server Configuration tab.

Configuration Page

Configure general tc Runtime options, such as JVM options, JSP behavior, and default options for static content.

Resources Page

Create, configure, and delete JDBC data sources.

Services Page

Configure the default Catalina service, and create new services. A tc Runtime service groups together one or more connectors and a single engine. The engine, in turn, groups together one or more virtual hosts.

Advanced Page

Enables you to reload, revert, or upload server configurations.

vCenter Hyperic populates the fields of the tc Runtime configuration pages from the its configuration files.

A vCenter Hyperic super-user can use all the tc Runtime features of the vCenter Hypericuser interface. A user who logs on to the user interface as a non-super-user, requires specific permissions to be able to use the tc Runtime features.

You can configure general tc Runtime options, including changing the shutdown port and shutdown command.

You can configure tc Runtime Start settings, including configuring the JVM where the instance runs, minimum and maximum heap size, garbage collection, and debugging.

Use this page to configure the context for every Web application deployed to this tc Runtime instance.

You can configure the behavior of static content in Web applications that run on tc Runtime.

You can make advanced server configurations.

JDBC datasources enable you to access data in a database server. You can create a new JDBC datasource, or edit an existing one.

A tc Runtime service represents the combination of connector components that share a single engine component for processing incoming requests.

Connectors represent the interface between external clients sending requests to (and receiving responses from) a particular tc Runtime service.

A tc Runtime host represents a virtual host, which is an association of a network name for a server and the specific machine that hosts the tc Runtime instance.

You can configure the logging system for the current engine.
