Custom Monitors

The following custom monitors are available in Applications Manager.

JMX / SNMP Dashboard

These custom monitors provide a real-time, correlated view of the entire application stack improving J2EE/J2SE application performance by monitoring its data sources such as JMX MBean source and SNMP Agents.

JMX / SNMP Dashboard is a logical grouping that consist of data sources such as JMX MBean and SNMP OID. It can have both the JMX and SNMP attributes.

  • Availability tab gives the Availability history for the past 24 hours or 30 days.
  • Performance tab gives the Health Status and events for the past 24 hours or 30 days.
  • List view enables you to perform bulk admin configurations.

Building JMX / SNMP Dashboard involves

The advantage of creating the dashboard is to monitor various data source at a common place.

Creating a JMX / SNMP Dashboard

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:

  1. Select New Monitor. Choose JMX / SNMP Dashboard.
  2. Provide any name for the custom monitor and a description.
  3. Click Add JMX / SNMP Dashboard to create the custom monitor. This opens a screen that allows you to add attributes for custom monitors.

In case you are unable to add the monitor even after enabling JMX, try providing the below argument:

The next step is to build the custom monitor to enable monitoring your data sources.

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.

Adding Attributes

Once you add a JMX / SNMP Dashboard, the Add Attributes option is available. Click that to add custom attributes to your Custom Monitor. The following are the data source for which custom monitors are built by Applications Manager. Click on the topics to view the steps required to add the respective data sources or attributes to the Custom Monitor.
