No Metrics visible for Standalone Oracle HTTP Server in Cloud Control 13c

Posted by Dirk Nachbar on Wednesday, May 08, 2019 with 2 comments
Currently I had the problem within Oracle Cloud Control 13c (13.3), that when I added an Oracle HTTP Server Standalone 12.2.1.x, Cloud Control 13c was not able to display any kinds of metrics from the Oracle HTTP Server.

As you can see from the above screenshot, Cloud Control was able to show me the correct status (UP), but Cloud Control could not see any metrics or even no configured Virtual Hosts.

The problem is within the Oracle HTTP Server 12.2.1.x, as the Oracle HTTP Server doesn't contain all required dms jar files.

To solve this problem, simply apply the patch 22860384, which is available for following Oracle HTTP Server Releases:

Download the patch for your Oracle HTTP Server Release, copy the patch to the server on which your Oracle HTTP Server is running and apply the patch:

# Stop your Oracle HTTP Server
$ cd $DOMAIN_HOME/bin
$ ./stopComponent <OHS Component Name>

# extract the zip file and go into the subdirectory 22860384
$ cd 22860384
$ $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch apply

Now wait some minutes or if you are not really patient, perform on the Oracle Cloud Control Agent 13 multiple times "emctl upload agent"

After some time you should be able now to see in your configured Oracle HTTP Server Target in the Oracle Cloud Control 13c all metrics and even configured Virtual Hosts.
