8 Administering the Monitoring Service

This chapter explains how to monitor the Oracle GlassFish Server 3.1.2 components and services by using the asadmin command-line utility. Instructions for configuring JConsole to monitor GlassFish Server resources are also provided.

The following topics are addressed here:

Instructions for monitoring by using the Administration Console are contained in the Administration Console online help.

For information on using REST interfaces for monitoring, see Using REST Interfaces to Administer GlassFish Server.

About Monitoring

Monitoring is the process of reviewing the statistics of a system to improve performance or solve problems. The monitoring service can track and display operational statistics, such as the number of requests per second, the average response time, and the throughput. By monitoring the state of various components and services deployed in GlassFish Server, you can identify performance bottlenecks, predict failures, perform root cause analysis, and ensure that everything is functioning as expected. Data gathered by monitoring can also be useful in performance tuning and capacity planning.

For this release of GlassFish Server, monitoring is exposed in a modular way so that many client modules can access and display the monitoring statistics. These clients include the Administration Console, the asadmin utility, AMX, and REST interfaces.

The following topics are addressed here:

How the Monitoring Tree Structure Works

A monitorable object is a component, subcomponent, or service that can be monitored. GlassFish Server uses a tree structure to track monitorable objects. Because the tree is dynamic, the tree changes as GlassFish Server components are added or removed.

In the tree, a monitorable object can have child objects (nodes) that represent exactly what can be monitored for that object. All child objects are addressed using the dot (.) character as a separator. These constructed names are referred to as dotted names. Detailed information on dotted names is available in the dotted-names(5ASC) help page.

The following command lists the monitorable child objects of the instance server:

asadmin> list --monitor "server.*"

server.applications
server.connector-service
server.http-service
server.jms-service
server.jvm
server.network
server.orb
server.resources 
server.security
server.thread-pool
server.transaction-service
server.web

Each object is represented by a dotted name. Dotted names can also address specific attributes in monitorable objects. For example, the jvm object has a memory attribute with a statistic called maxheapsize. The following dotted name addresses the attribute:

server.jvm.memory.maxheapsize

Although an object is monitorable, it is not necessarily being actively monitored. For instructions on activating monitoring, see Configuring Monitoring.

Tree Structure of Monitorable Objects

Each monitorable object has a hierarchical tree structure. In the tree, a replaceable such as *statistics represents the name of the attribute that you can show statistics for.

The following node tree hierarchies are addressed here:

Applications Tree Hierarchy

The applications tree contains the following nodes:

About Monitoring for Add-on Components

An add-on component typically generates statistics that GlassFish Server can gather at runtime. Adding monitoring capabilities enables an add-on component to provide statistics to GlassFish Server in the same way as components that are supplied in the GlassFish Server distributions. As a result, you can use the same administrative interfaces to monitor statistics from any installed GlassFish Server component, regardless of the origin of the component.

Tools for Monitoring GlassFish Server

The following asadmin subcommands are provided for monitoring the services and components of GlassFish Server:

Configuring Monitoring

By default, the monitoring service is enabled for GlassFish Server, but monitoring for the individual modules is not. To enable monitoring for a module, you change the monitoring level for that module to LOW or HIGH, You can choose to leave monitoring OFF for objects that do not need to be monitored.

The following tasks are addressed here:

To Enable Monitoring

Use the enable-monitoring subcommand to enable the monitoring service itself, or to enable monitoring for individual modules. Monitoring is immediately activated, without restarting GlassFish Server.

You can also use the set subcommand to enable monitoring for a module. Using the set command is not a dynamic procedure, so you need to restart GlassFish Server for your changes to take effect.

  1. Determine which services and components are currently enabled for monitoring.

    asadmin> get server.monitoring-service.module-monitoring-levels.*
    

    This example output shows that the HTTP service is not enabled (OFF for monitoring), but other objects are enabled:

    configs.config.server-config.monitoring-service.module-monitoring-levels.web-container=HIGH
           configs.config.server-config.monitoring-service.module-monitoring-levels.http-service=OFF
               configs.config.server-config.monitoring-service.module-monitoring-levels.jvm=HIGH 
    
  2. Enable monitoring by using the enable-monitoring subcommand.

    Server restart is not required.

Example 8-1 Enabling the Monitoring Service Dynamically

This example enables the monitoring service without affecting monitoring for individual modules.

asadmin> enable-monitoring
Command enable-monitoring executed successfully

Example 8-2 Enabling Monitoring for Modules Dynamically

This example enables monitoring for the ejb-container module.

asadmin> enable-monitoring --level ejb-container=HIGH
Command enable-monitoring executed successfully

Example 8-3 Enabling Monitoring for Modules by Using the set Subcommand

This example enables monitoring for the HTTP service by setting the monitoring level to HIGH (you must restart the server for changes to take effect).

asadmin> set server.monitoring-service.module-monitoring-levels.http-service=HIGH
Command set executed successfully

See Also

You can also view the full syntax and options of the subcommand by typing asadmin help enable-monitoring at the command line.

To Disable Monitoring

Use the disable-monitoring subcommand to disable the monitoring service itself, or to disable monitoring for individual modules. Monitoring is immediately stopped, without restarting GlassFish Server.

You can also use the set subcommand to disable monitoring for a module. Using the set command is not a dynamic procedure, so you need to restart GlassFish Server for your changes to take effect.

  1. Determine which services and components currently are enabled for monitoring.

    asadmin get server.monitoring-service.module-monitoring-levels.*
    

    This example output shows that monitoring is enabled for web-container, http-service, and jvm:

    configs.config.server-config.monitoring-service.module-monitoring-levels.web-container=HIGH
           configs.config.server-config.monitoring-service.module-monitoring-levels.http-service=HIGH
                  configs.config.server-config.monitoring-service.module-monitoring-levels.jvm=HIGH 
    
  2. Disable monitoring for a service or module by using the disable-monitoring subcommand.

    Server restart is not required.

Example 8-4 Disabling the Monitoring Service Dynamically

This example disables the monitoring service without changing the monitoring levels for individual modules.

asadmin> disable-monitoring
Command disable-monitoring executed successfully

Example 8-5 Disabling Monitoring for Modules Dynamically

This example disables monitoring for specific modules. Their monitoring levels are set to OFF.

asadmin> disable-monitoring --modules web-container,ejb-container
Command disable-monitoring executed successfully

Example 8-6 Disabling Monitoring by Using the set Subcommand

This example disables monitoring for the HTTP service (you must restart the server for changes to take effect).

asadmin> set server.monitoring-service.module-monitoring-levels.http-service=OFF
Command set executed successfully

See Also

You can also view the full syntax and options of the subcommand by typing asadmin help disable-monitoring at the command line.

Viewing Common Monitoring Data

Use the monitor subcommand to display basic data on commonly-monitored objects.

To View Common Monitoring Data

Use the --type option of the monitor subcommand to specify the object for which you want to display data, such as httplistener, jvm, webmodule. If you use the monitor subcommand without specifying a type, an error message is displayed.

Output from the subcommand is displayed continuously in a tabular format. The --interval option can be used to display output at a particular interval (the default is 30 seconds).

Before You Begin

A monitorable object must be configured for monitoring before you can display data on the object. See To Enable Monitoring.

  1. Determine which type of monitorable object you want to monitor.

    Your choices for 3.1.2 are jvm, httplistener, and webmodule.

  2. Request the monitoring data by using the monitor subcommand.

Example 8-7 Viewing Common Monitoring Data

This example requests common data for type jvm on instance server.

asadmin> monitor --type jvm server

UpTime(ms)                          Heap and NonHeap Memory(bytes)
current                   min        max        low        high       count

9437266                   8585216    619642880  0          0          93093888
9467250                   8585216    619642880  0          0          93093888

Viewing Comprehensive Monitoring Data

By applying the list and get subcommands against the tree structure using dotted names, you can display more comprehensive monitoring data, such as a description of each of the statistics and its unit of measurement.

The following topics are addressed here:

Guidelines for Using the list and get Subcommands for Monitoring

The underlying assumptions for using the list and get subcommands with dotted names are:

  • A list subcommand that specifies a dotted name that is not followed by a wildcard (*) lists the current node's immediate children. For example, the following subcommand lists all immediate children belonging to the server node:

    list --monitor server
    
  • A list subcommand that specifies a dotted name followed by a wildcard of the form .* lists a hierarchical tree of child nodes from the specified node. For example, the following subcommand lists all children of the applications node, their subsequent child nodes, and so on:

    list --monitor server.applications.*
    
  • A list subcommand that specifies a dotted name preceded or followed by a wildcard of the form *dottedname or dotted * name or dottedname * lists all nodes and their children that match the regular expression created by the specified matching pattern.

  • A get subcommand followed by a .* or a * gets the set of attributes and their values that belong to the node specified.

For example, the following table explains the output of the list and get subcommands used with the dotted name for the resources node.

Table 8-4 Example Resources Level Dotted Names

Subcommand Dotted Name Output

list --monitor

server.resources

List of pool names.

list --monitor

server.resources.connection-pool1

No attributes, but a message saying "Use get subcommand with the --monitor option to view this node's attributes and values."

get --monitor

server.resources.connection-pool1.*

List of attributes and values corresponding to connection pool attributes.


For detailed information on dotted names, see the dotted-names(5ASC) help page.

To View Comprehensive Monitoring Data

Although the monitor subcommand is useful in many situations, it does not offer the complete list of all monitorable objects. To work with comprehensive data for an object type, use the list monitor and the get monitor subcommands followed by the dotted name of a monitorable object.

Before You Begin

A monitorable object must be configured for monitoring before you can display information about the object. See To Enable Monitoring if needed.

  1. List the objects that are enabled for monitoring by using the list subcommand.

    For example, the following subcommand lists all components and services that have monitoring enabled for instance server.

    asadmin> list --monitor "*"
    server.web
    server.connector-service 
    server.orb 
    server.jms-serviceserver.jvm
    server.applications
    server.http-service
    server.thread-pools
    
  2. Get data for a monitored component or service by using the get subcommand.

asadmin> get --monitor server.jvm.runtime.vmversion-current
server.jvm.runtime.vmversion-current = 10.0-b23

Comprehensive Monitoring Statistics

You can get comprehensive monitoring statistics by forming a dotted name that specifies the statistic you are looking for. For example, the following dotted name will display the cumulative number of requests for the HTTP service on virtual-server1:

server.http-service.virtual-server1.request.requestcount

The tables in the following sections list the statistics that are available for each monitorable object:

EJB Statistics

EJBs fit into the tree of objects as shown in Applications Tree Hierarchy. Use the following dotted name pattern to get EJB statistics for an application:

server.applications.appname.ejbmodulename.ejbname.bean-cache.statistic

Note:

EJB statistics for an application are available after the application is executed. If the application is deployed but has not yet been executed, all counts will show default values. When the application is undeployed, all its monitoring data is lost.

Statistics available for applications are shown in the following sections:

EJB Cache Statistics

Use the following dotted name pattern for EJB cache statistics:

server.applications.appname.ejbmodulename.bean-cache.ejbname.statistic

Configuring JConsole to View GlassFish Server Monitoring Data

Java SE provides tools to connect to an MBean Server and view the MBeans registered with the server. JConsole is one such popular JMX Connector Client and is available as part of the standard Java SE distribution. When you configure JConsole for use with GlassFish Server, GlassFish Server becomes the JMX Connector's server end and JConsole becomes the JMX connector's client end.

To Connect JConsole to GlassFish Server

Java SE 6 enhances management and monitoring of the virtual machine by including a Platform MBean Server and by including managed beans (MBeans) to configure the virtual machine.

To view all MBeans, GlassFish Server provides a configuration of the standard JMX connector server called System JMX Connector Server. As part of GlassFish Server startup, an instance of this JMX Connector Server is started. Any compliant JMX connector client can connect to the server using the JMX Connector Server.

By default, GlassFish Server is configured with a non-secure System JMX Connector Server. If this is an issue, the JMX connector can be removed. However, access can be restricted to a specific IP address (for example, the loopback address) by setting address to locahost.

  1. Start the domain.

    For instructions, see To Start a Domain.

  2. Start JConsole using this format: JDK_HOME/bin/jconsole

    For example:

    /usr/java/bin/jconsole
    

    The JConsole Connect to Agent window is displayed.

  3. Click the Remote tab and type the host name and port.

    Always connect remotely with JConsole, otherwise MBeans will not load automatically.

  4. Click Connect.

  5. In the Remote Process text box, specify the JMX Service URL.

    For example:

    service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://localhost:8686/jmxrmi 
    

    The JMX Service URL is emitted by the server at startup, looking something like this:

    [#|2009-12-03T10:25:17.737-0800|INFO|glassfishv3.0|
    x..system.tools.admin.org.glassfish.server|_ThreadID=20;
    _ThreadName=Thread-26;|JMXStartupService: Started JMXConnector, JMXService 
    URL = service:jmx:rmi://localhost:8686/jndi/rmi://localhost:8686/jmxrmi|#]
    

    However, in most cases, simply entering host:port is fine, such as, 192.168.1.150:8686. The long Service URL is not needed.

    Note:

    Another host name can be substituted for localhost. The default port number (8686) could change if the jmx-connector configuration has been modified.

  6. Click Connect.

    In the JConsole window you will see all your MBeans, JVM information, and so on, in various tabs. Most of the useful MBeans are to be found in the amx and java.lang domains.
