      1. Does it able to collect server level metrics like CPU Utilization, Memory Utilization, etc.
      2. Is logging features available
      3. Does it support integration with Office Applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio
      4. Is Documentum can be integarted?
      5. Does it support to deliver the content across a spectrum of access devices - LAN,WAN,internet, mobile
      6. Does it support System Intuitiveness
      7. Does it support Manageability (Change Management, Network / Systems Management)
      8. How flexible the configuration in its adaptive nature of the compute, storage, and network resources to changing demands from the application and application infrastructure

          First you should right away look at Portal 2.6 since it is in CR1 state and will be final way before you go in production

          Define the use case, if it is to be shown on the portal, it's the responsibility of the portlet.
          If it is at the portal level to monitor the life of the portal, you can use JBoss ON, not only it will collect those metrics but can trigger alarms (by email, SNMP trap, SMS...) by defining rules. See http://www.jboss.com/elqNow/elqRedir.htm?ref=http://www.jboss.com/pdf/JB_ON_Monitoring_01_07_US.pdf
          On top of that we expose few data about the portal that could be used in JBoss ON like the maximum time it took to render portlets, to action portlets. Number of errors that happened in portlets... (Very basic for portlets as of today)

          Again, define. We do log what happens at the server level through standard log4j. We don't log things like what happens to the CMS.

          It is a Web portal. Please define...


          4. Is Documentum can be integarted?


          Documentum has JSR-168 portlets avaialble from what is written here:
          http://software.emc.com/products/faq/portlets_faq.htm
          As we are fully JSR-168 compliant. we also support WSRP and Documentum exposes documents through it. Short answer: Yes.



          5. Does it support to deliver the content across a spectrum of access devices - LAN,WAN,internet, mobile


          I guess you mean different markup language HTML, WML(because it's of course independent of the transport layer)
          Yes, but you need to write the correct template and theme for WML for example.


          6. Does it support System Intuitiveness

          I don't know what you mean


          7. Does it support Manageability (Change Management, Network / Systems Management)

          please define


          8. How flexible the configuration in its adaptive nature of the compute, storage, and network resources to changing demands from the application and application infrastructure


          Very flexible, you can change most of the behavior without affecting the code itself through interceptor and declarative customization. Swapping the storage from one database to another is just the matter of changing the datasource decriptor (5 minutes afer you migrated your data).
          JBoss Portal runs on any platform supporting Java, so you can easily change your application infrastructure, you can also easily move from a single node to a cluster.


          Thanks in advance.

            Hello,

            about monitoring the portal :

            On top of that we expose few data about the portal that could be used in JBoss ON like the maximum time it took to render portlets, to action portlets. Number of errors that happened in portlets... (Very basic for portlets as of today)


            I have search in portal 2.6 (doc, source...)
            Can't find anything about statistics, metrics, or how to monitor the portal.

            I remember to have seen some code about that, but can't find it anymore.

            Does anyone know where all this is ?
            how to get information on the statistic of the portal ?
            with or without JBoss ON

            Thanks,
