Sun Java System Message Queue 4.2 Developer's Guide for Java Clients

Implementation Summary

The following task list summarizes the steps required to implement message based monitoring:

ProcedureTo Implement Message-Based Monitoring

  1. The developer designs and writes a client that subscribes to one or more metrics destinations.

  2. The administrator sets those metrics-related broker properties whose default values are not satisfactory.

  3. (Optional) The administrator sets entries in the file to restrict access to metrics information.

  4. The developer or the administrator starts the metrics monitoring client.

    When consumers subscribe to a metrics topic, the topic’s physical destination is automatically created. After the metrics topic has been created, the broker’s metrics message producer begins to send metrics messages to the appropriate destination.
