Java Management Extensions technology (JMX) provides a simple, standard way to perform JVM performance monitoring and manage your JVM resources such as applications, devices, and services. Extracting JMX metrics is a challenging process for system admins and developers who want deeper insight into their application. This is where JMX monitoring comes into play.
Applications Manager aids in JMX management where you can monitor Java/J2EE Applications that expose management information via JMX. You can also identify transactions, threads and connection pools responsible for consuming JVM resources. You can also perform thread dumps analysis with a Java thread dump analyzer. In addition, you get a comprehensive JMX monitoring tool with a consistent and usable interface.
Though it can be quite challenging to monitor JMX and custom MBeans, using Applications Manager's JMX monitoring solution, you can query and report any Managed beans (MBeans) from your application. You can also gain real-time visibility into custom metrics in your application deployment like the state of memory management, class loading, active threads, logging, and platform configuration.
With Applications Manager's JMX performance monitoring, go beyond just monitoring MBeans. Execute JMX MBean Operations and custom scripts to help administrators take corrective actions when thresholds are breached. Create notification listeners that listen for MBean notifications for specific events and respond appropriately.
Applications Manager's JMX monitoring feature also empowers you with abilities to automate regular maintenance tasks, rolling upgrades, and more. Also get notified via e-mail or SMS when the application becomes critical; with the help of Java JMX monitoring tool's threshold profiling and pattern matching capabilities.
Applications Manager's Java monitoring tools enable you to identify trends and correlate JMX performance metrics from an application during a slow transaction. Monitor Java JMX to get out-of-the-box reports with trending information.

JMX Monitoring is the act of monitoring performance attributes in JMX, usually implemented to gain insight into Java applications and associated JVM resources. In addition to monitoring, a typical JMX monitor can also identify issues and anomalies in performance and send out alerts to IT admins.
JMX can be monitored by querying MBeans and sending out notifications in case of faults. Using a JMX monitoring tool like Applications Manager, admins can monitor their JMX console and expose application information to ensure that there's no degradation in application performance.
