Overview of Performance Management Framework
Performance Management Viewer: The PM Viewer architecture is comprised of the following technology stack:
The thin client, also called the Web Browser, represents the Web browser in which you can view generated reports.
The middle tier is known as the Web Application Server. This in turn includes the Web Listener, which communicates between the client and middle tiers; the Web Request Broker, which determines which PL/SQL cartridge should service a specific request; the PL/SQL Cartridge, which performs advance processing that might be required for report generation; and the E-Business Intelligence Java Classes, which perform the tasks related to displaying graphs and charts.
The database tier includes the Oracle database, as well as the stored PL/SQL procedures. The database tier includes the ICX, the PM Viewer, the AK data dictionary, views, and tables.
Processing components: Through PM Framework, system administrators can schedule alerts, and target users can subscribe to the notifications. Once a system administrator schedules an alert, PM Framework sends notifications to target owners and updates data for presentation on the performance measure portlet. Note that previous versions of BIS used Oracle Alerts technology to achieve the alerting functionality. In this release, E-Business Alerts uses its own alerting technology.
