disables monitoring for the server or for specific monitorable modules


disable-monitoring [--help] [--modules module-name][:module-name]*


The disable-monitoring subcommand is used to turn off monitoring for GlassFish Server or for particular modules during runtime. Changes are dynamic, that is, server restart is not required.

Running the disable-monitoring subcommand without the --module option disables the monitoring service by setting the monitoring-enabled attribute of the monitoring-service element to false. The individual modules retain their monitoring levels, but no monitoring data is generated because the entire monitoring service is disabled.

This subcommand used with the --modules option disables monitoring for a module by setting the monitoring level to OFF. The status of the monitoring service is not affected. For a list of monitorable modules, see the --modules option in this help page.

An alternative method for disabling monitoring is to use the set subcommand. In this case, the server must be restarted for changes to take effect.

This subcommand is supported in remote mode only.
