I'm looking for a good tool for monitoring WebLogic apps and other resources like datasources and other areas that can cause performance issues.I was thinking of oracle enterprise manager or Hp openview are any good for production level deployments.Please recommend if these 2 are good.I'm also thinking about weblogic diagnostic framework as an option.if you can provide me with any documentation about which is best it will be great

thanks

it depends on what we are talking about. Do you need a tool that will monitor you application running in production environment, or do you need a tool that will help you in resolving performance issues ?

as far as i know, HPOV and OEM are tools used to monitor your environments (machines, cpu, network, jvm...)
WLDF is just a framework used inside weblogic server to monitor components (jvm, heap...) You won't be able to build an entire supervision solution only with WLDF. You will need HPOV (or OEM) and if you want, WLDF.
Anyway, these tools won't be very effective during integration phases to look for application bottlenecks.

You might want to also consider Quest Software's various tools.  They have a series of products meant to be run in production that monitor all the way from the high level app availability and performance down to the method level tracing to chase down performance bottlenecks.

Here's an article from the Internet that has more info:

Also, in general, monitoring the JVMs in production will have a small impact on performance.  Usually, most of the vendors I've run across will say around 2%-5% hit for monitoring the JVM depending on what statistics you're pulling at runtime.
