Red Samurai ADF Performance Audit Tool v 3.3 - Audit Improvements

Christmas present from Red Samurai - ADF Performance Audit Tool v 3.3. This is a next version after 3.2 (Red Samurai ADF Performance Audit Tool v 3.2 - Large Fetch and Full Scan Audit Optimizations) with a set of features improving audit process.

Implemented features in v 3.3:

1. Logging audit data from multiple WebLogic servers

Audit is improved to log data from several WebLogic servers into the same DB schema, Audit UI dashboard allows to select data from specific server or display combined data from all of them. This helps when ADF application is installed in the cluster environment or different application instances are running on different servers.

Changing current audit server address in UI dashboard, to display audit data logged from that server. Here is the example of showing data from all servers, this is by default:

If user selects DefaultServer:7101, data is filtered from selected server only (there are 30 issues displayed):

Select another server - TestServer:7101 and only one logged issue will be displayed:

2. Data Source switch

UI dashboard is capable to switch between different data sources. This is useful, if there are different DB schemas, where audit data is logged. From the single UI dashboard, on runtime, user could decide which audit data he wants to display

3. Option to turn on/off audit globally with -Dredsamurai.audit=on JVM parameter

It is much easier now to turn on/off audit when it is installed in ADF application. This can be controlled with JVM parameter -Dredsamurai.audit=on/off:
