The Talend Activity Monitoring Console Web application we are talking about in this section is available in Talend Administration Center. However, the AMC is also a perspective available in Talend Studio. For more information about this perspective, see the Talend Activity Monitoring Console User Guide.

Deploy the Talend Activity Monitoring Console Web application

Prerequisites: You need to deploy Talend Administration Center before following this procedure.

  1. Unzip the Talend-AMC_Web-YYYYYYYY_YYYY-VA.B.C.zip archive file containing the amc.war file on the same machine as Talend Administration Center Web application.

  2. Paste the amc.war file in the same webapps folder as the one where Talend Administration Center is located, for example <TomcatPath>/webapps/.

The next time you will start the server, the Talend Activity Monitoring Console application will be automatically deployed.

Install database drivers in Tomcat for Talend Activity Monitoring Console

If you are not using the embedded H2 database with Talend Activity Monitoring Console, you must install the driver for the database to use.

For more information regarding the databases compatible with Talend Activity Monitoring Console, see Compatible Databases.

To install database drivers for Talend Activity Monitoring Console, proceed as follows:

  1. Stop Tomcat and clean the <apache-tomcat>/work/Catalina/localhost folder, where <apache-tomcat> corresponds to Tomcat installation directory.

  2. Make sure that the driver for the database you want to use does not exist in any of these folders:

    • <apache-tomcat>/webapps/org.talend.administrator/WEB-INF/lib

    • <apache-tomcat>/webapps/amc/WEB-INF/lib

    • <apache-tomcat>/lib

    If the driver already exists in one of these folders, skip the next step.

  3. Download the correct database driver(s) from the official provider website, according to the version of the JVM you use to run Tomcat and the version of the database you want to use.

    In case you use Oracle, use a copy of the ojdbcX.jar file from your Oracle installation.

    Note that those drivers are specific and that you should only download the one(s) that you need.

  4. If it does not exist, create a new endorsed folder under <apache-tomcat>.

  5. Place the driver(s) you need in the <apache-tomcat>/endorsed folder.

  6. Restart Tomcat.

Configure the Talend Activity Monitoring Console in Talend Administration Center

In the Talend Administration Center web application, you have to set up the link to the Talend Activity Monitoring Console.

  • To do so, specify the following information on the Monitoring group of the Configuration page:

    • AMC url: type in the URL address of the Talend Activity Monitoring Console application, http://localhost:8080/amc/rap?startup=amc for example.

      Warning

      http://localhost:8080/amc/rap?startup=amc is only given as example. Depending on your configuration, you may have to replace <localhost> with the IP address of the Web server and <8080> with the actual port of the <AMC>.

    You also have to configure three database tables that will store statistics and log information.

    For more information about this application, see the Talend Activity Monitoring Console User Guide.
