public class GaugeMonitor
extends Monitor
implements GaugeMonitorMBean

Defines a monitor MBean designed to observe the values of a gauge attribute.

A gauge monitor observes an attribute that is continuously variable with time. A gauge monitor sends notifications as follows:

This provides a hysteresis mechanism to avoid repeated triggering of notifications when the attribute value makes small oscillations around the high or low threshold value.

If the gauge difference mode is used, the value of the derived gauge is calculated as the difference between the observed gauge values for two successive observations.
The derived gauge value (V[t]) is calculated using the following method:

This implementation of the gauge monitor requires the observed attribute to be of the type integer or floating-point (Byte, Integer, Short, Long, Float, Double).
