Free Script to Read OSB 11g Statistic

This is how to collect all stats from an OSB 11g domain into a CSV file:
java -jar readosbstats.jar -c -u monitor -p password1

You can export OSB stats via JMX. This is not hard, and there are code samples all over the net.

Unfortunately, JMX requires an administrator account. What people who only have a monitor account (developers, architects, BAs) supposed to do?

Here’s an answer: ReadOsbStats is a small free utility that doesn’t require admin credentials but collects the stats nontheless.

ReadOsbStats: Gather Stats into CSV

I created ReadOsbStats incrementally over many years to serve my own needs and the needs of delivery and operations teams. In its most basic function, it simply collects all the stats from an OSB domain into a CSV file.


It uses screen scrapping (yikes, right? :-) ) instead of JMX, so it doesn’t require an admin password.

The tool is still being enhanced. There are a few features that teams have requested for OSB 11g version. Then the next major release will have support for OSB 12.

For the impatient, please go to ReadOsbStats download page and give it a try.

If you want to know more details, here’s the quick start guide (copied from

ReadOsbStats Quick Start

1. Make sure you’re using OSB 11g

At this point, ReadOsbStats only supports OSB 11g. If you have OSB 12, you’re out of luck - until the support for it is implemented.

2. Make sure you have a monitor account on OSB domain

ReadOsbStats needs a monitor (or better) account on the OSB domain. If you can login to OSB console and see the stats, your account is good.

3. Download the JAR

Download the JAR from here to a work folder on your computer.

4. Execute the application

Provide the OSB console URL, user name and password:

java -jar readosbstats.jar -c -u monitor -p password1


  • -c Console URL, including the /sbconsole part

  • -u A WLS user name, with at least monitor access

  • -p The password for that user

5. Grab the generated file

At the end of the execution ReadOsbStats will print the name of the generated report, like this:

Writing OSB-stats- as CSV...

You can open that file with any application that understands CSV, including, of course, Microsoft Excel and Apache OpenOffice.

6. Learn more options

ReadOsbStats supports many modes of operation. Learn about them by requesting help:

java -jar readosbstats.jar -h

You can also get more details in the Documentation section.
