IBM Control Center web-based user interface that is hosted by the WebSphere Application Servers. The web console provides functions that are used routinely, such as monitoring activity and status, managing configuration objects, and running reports. All web consoles, regardless of the application servers they are connected to in a cluster, display the same information.
IBM Control Center supports onboarding servers through dynamic discovery and manual definition. Manually defined servers, such as IBM Sterling Connect: Direct and IBM Sterling B2B Integrator, are on-boarded after the servers are configured in IBM Control Center through the console.
IBM control center communicates with manually defined servers through the node services. EPs handle events from these servers immediately after the events are received. Similar to dynamically discovered servers, events from manually defined servers are also passed through visibility service, metadata service, rule service, and SLC service.
IBM control center high availability architecture can use one or more EPs and WebSphere Application Servers. When you install multiple EPs and WebSphere Application Servers, you can implement IBM Control Center in a high availability environment. WebSphere Application Servers can host multiple web consoles and ERs.
