Monitoring provides runtime information about Portal Server's Desktop and Secure Remote Access components. The framework for maintaining system statistics is based on JavaTM Management Extensions (JMXTM) technology.
Information collected from monitoring these components can help portal administrators do the following:
Make appropriate tuning decisions
Establish reliable benchmarks
Deploy additional portal instances to support increased end-user activity on a portal
Configure alarms to flag significant events (such as server threadpools reaching 95% utilization)
The Portal Server management console provides pages for configuring and generating reports about the how the Desktop and Secure Remote Access components perform. Administrators can use the command-line interface to perform other monitoring tasks. For information, see the Sun Java System Portal System 7 Command-Line Reference.
