javax.management.monitor
Class Monitor

java.lang.Object
  extended by javax.management.NotificationBroadcasterSupport
      extended by javax.management.monitor.Monitor
All Implemented Interfaces:
MBeanRegistration, MonitorMBean, NotificationBroadcaster, NotificationEmitter
Direct Known Subclasses:
CounterMonitor, GaugeMonitor, StringMonitor

public abstract class Monitor
extends NotificationBroadcasterSupport
implements MonitorMBean, MBeanRegistration

Defines the part common to all monitor MBeans. A monitor MBean monitors values of an attribute common to a set of observed MBeans. The observed attribute is monitored at intervals specified by the granularity period. A gauge value (derived gauge) is derived from the values of the observed attribute.

1.5

Field Detail

capacityIncrement

protected static final int capacityIncrement
The amount by which the capacity of the monitor arrays are automatically incremented when their size becomes greater than their capacity.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

elementCount

protected int elementCount
The number of valid components in the vector of observed objects.


alreadyNotified

@Deprecated
protected int alreadyNotified
Deprecated. equivalent to alreadyNotifieds[0].
Monitor errors that have already been notified.


alreadyNotifieds

protected int[] alreadyNotifieds

Selected monitor errors that have already been notified.

Each element in this array corresponds to an observed object in the vector. It contains a bit mask of the flags OBSERVED_OBJECT_ERROR_NOTIFIED etc, indicating whether the corresponding notification has already been sent for the MBean being monitored.


server

protected MBeanServer server
Reference to the MBean server. This reference is null when the monitor MBean is not registered in an MBean server. This reference is initialized before the monitor MBean is registered in the MBean server.

See Also:
preRegister(MBeanServer server, ObjectName name)

RESET_FLAGS_ALREADY_NOTIFIED

protected static final int RESET_FLAGS_ALREADY_NOTIFIED
This flag is used to reset the alreadyNotifieds monitor attribute.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

OBSERVED_OBJECT_ERROR_NOTIFIED

protected static final int OBSERVED_OBJECT_ERROR_NOTIFIED
Flag denoting that a notification has occurred after changing the observed object. This flag is used to check that the new observed object is registered in the MBean server at the time of the first notification.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

OBSERVED_ATTRIBUTE_ERROR_NOTIFIED

protected static final int OBSERVED_ATTRIBUTE_ERROR_NOTIFIED
Flag denoting that a notification has occurred after changing the observed attribute. This flag is used to check that the new observed attribute belongs to the observed object at the time of the first notification.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

OBSERVED_ATTRIBUTE_TYPE_ERROR_NOTIFIED

protected static final int OBSERVED_ATTRIBUTE_TYPE_ERROR_NOTIFIED
Flag denoting that a notification has occurred after changing the observed object or the observed attribute. This flag is used to check that the observed attribute type is correct (depending on the monitor in use) at the time of the first notification.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

RUNTIME_ERROR_NOTIFIED

protected static final int RUNTIME_ERROR_NOTIFIED
Flag denoting that a notification has occurred after changing the observed object or the observed attribute. This flag is used to notify any exception (except the cases described above) when trying to get the value of the observed attribute at the time of the first notification.

See Also:
Constant Field Values

dbgTag

@Deprecated
protected String dbgTag
Deprecated. No replacement.
This field is retained for compatibility but should not be referenced.
