start of the method execution event
glassfish:ejb:bean:methodStartEvent ( long beanId, String appName, String modName, String ejbName, Method method) glassfish:ejb:bean__beanspecific_:methodStartEvent ( long beanId, String appName, String modName, String ejbName, Method method)
These two events are sent when the EJB container code starts executing a bean method.
Use the generic version of this event to track EJB methods executed across the entire EJB container.
Use the bean-specific version of this event to track EJB methods executed for a specific bean. In the bean-specific version, beanspecific has the form:
In this form, appName, modName, and ejbName are the names of the application, the module, and the bean, respectively, with dashes (-) and periods (.) converted to underscores (_). For example, the bean-specific event name for the
sampleBean bean in the
sampleModule.jar module of the
sample-App application is:
When monitoring the activity of a specific bean, using the bean-specific version of this event provides much better end-to-end monitoring performance than does using the generic version and inspecting its parameters to associate the event with the bean.
The unique identifier for the EJB container associated with this EJB.
The name of the application associated with the EJB.
The name of the module that contains the EJB.
The name of the EJB.
The Method object.
