IBM WebSphere - Health monitoring control cycle

This assumes you are familiar with Health Management in WebSphere. If not, check out our getting started article.

In the WebSphere admin console, navigate to Operational policies > Autonomic Managers > Health Controller. By default, Control cycle length will be set to 5 minutes. With this configuration, once every 5 minutes, the health controller will evaluate each health policy once every 5 minutes. Control cycle length can be a value between 1 and 60.


On the command line, you can use wsadmin to invoke the HmmControllerProcs.jacl script to view and configure the control cycle(examples based on Linux).

./ -profile HmmControllerProcs.jacl -c "setControlCycleLength integer_between_1_and_60"


View the current configuration.

./ -profile HmmControllerProcs.jacl -c "getControlCycleLength"


The following output will be displayed.

5 minutes
