Note: You can also refer to our How-To section on configuring a Custom Monitor.
For example, you have a Java application with built-in manageability using JMX and any application that has an SNMP interface, then they are managed by building JMX / SNMP Dash Board.
To create a JMX / SNMP Dash Board, follow the given steps:
Select New Monitor. Choose JMX / SNMP Dashboard.
Provide any name for the custom monitor and a description.
Click Add JMX / SNMP Dashboard to create the custom monitor. This opens a screen that allows you to add attributes for custom monitors.
The next step is to build the custom monitor to enable monitoring your data sources. Refer to the Custom Monitors section of Monitor Information, for more details on the same.
You need to discover JMX MBeans and SNMP Agent data source to add attributes. The following are the JMX MBean resources whose MBean attributes are monitored by Applications Manager using Custom Monitor:
