Diagnostic Modules: Create a Metric
Configuration Options Related Tasks
Use this set of pages to create a single metric for the current system module. Each metric represents data from one or more attributes of a specified MBean type. The metric can collect data from all instances of the MBean type or from specified instances of the type.
To configure all options for the metric, you must set options on the first page, click Next to navigate to the next page, set the option on that page, etc. When finished, click Finish to save the configuration.
On the Create a Metric: Metric Collection properties page, select a type of MBean from which you want to collect diagnostic data.
On the Create a Metric: Additional Metric Collection Properties page, select the attributes you want to track for the MBean you chose on the Metric Collection properties page (step 1, above). If you don't select any individual attributes here, diagnostic data for all attributes on the MBean will be collected.
On the Create a Metric: Select Instances page, select the instances of the MBean you want to track. If you don't select any individual MBean instances here, diagnostic data for all the instances of the MBean type will be collected, including instances which are created in the future.
