Class GaugeMonitor

All Implemented Interfaces:
MBeanRegistration, GaugeMonitorMBean, MonitorMBean, NotificationBroadcaster, NotificationEmitter

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:

  • if the attribute value is increasing and becomes equal to or greater than the high threshold value, a threshold high notification is sent. The notify high flag must be set to true.
    Subsequent crossings of the high threshold value do not cause further notifications unless the attribute value becomes equal to or less than the low threshold value.
  • if the attribute value is decreasing and becomes equal to or less than the low threshold value, a threshold low notification is sent. The notify low flag must be set to true.
    Subsequent crossings of the low threshold value do not cause further notifications unless the attribute value becomes equal to or greater than the high threshold value.
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:

  • V[t] = gauge[t] - gauge[t-GP]
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).
