Integration Workload Statistics (IWS). This feature refers to a new tool in SOA Suite that provides statistics capability focused on improving system resources performance, tuning and troubleshooting (e.g., Datasources or WorkManagers). It takes periodic snapshots of different metrics in predefined intervals, and stores the results in the database for each Managed Server of the cluster. With this information, IWS can generate customized reports and deliver them in XML, CSV or HTML format. It is not possible to use this feature on the integrated WebLogic server provided with the quickstart version.
Automatic Service Migration. This feature is useful when, within a cluster environment with several Managed Servers, one of them is down for any reason. In this situation, what usually happens is either an automatic restart of the whole server into another node of the cluster, which can be a slow process and requires a backup node in a passive mode, or another functional node takes the full load of this action. Automatic Service Migration functionality avoids the restart process, so that actions are taken against node failure by migrating only singleton services like JTA and JMS to some other running node. This reduces recovery time and infrastructure
