Using the Java ES Monitoring Console

Message Queue supports the Sun Java System Monitoring Framework (JESMF), which allows Java Enterprise System (Java ES) components to be monitored using a common graphical interface, the Sun Java System Monitoring Console. Administrators can use the Monitoring Console to view performance statistics, create rules for automatic monitoring, and acknowledge alarms. If you are running Message Queue along with other Java ES components, you may find it more convenient to use a single interface to manage all of them.

The Java ES Monitoring Framework defines a common data model, the Common Monitoring Model (CMM), to be used by all Java ES component products. This model enables a centralized and uniform view of all Java ES components. Message Queue exposes the following objects through the Common Monitoring Model:

Each of these objects is mapped to a CMM object whose attributes can be monitored using the Java ES Monitoring Console. The reference tables in Chapter 22, JES Monitoring Framework Reference identify those attributes that are available for JESMF monitoring. For detailed information about the mapping of Message Queue objects to CMM objects, see the Sun Java Enterprise System Monitoring Guide.

To enable JESMF monitoring, you must do the following:

  1. Enable and configure the Monitoring Framework for all of your monitored components, as described in the Sun Java Enterprise System Monitoring Guide.

  2. Install the Monitoring Console on a separate host, start the master agent, and then start the Web server, as described in the Sun Java Enterprise System Monitoring Guide.

Using the Java ES Monitoring Framework will not affect broker performance, because all the work of gathering metrics is done by the Monitoring Framework, which pulls data from the broker’s existing data monitoring infrastructure.

For information on metric information provided by the Java ES Monitoring Framework, see Chapter 22, JES Monitoring Framework Reference.
