Using their leading-edge hosted software as a service (SaaS) approach, Monitis’ Cloud-based Java Application Monitoring Tool enables IT managers to monitor any Java-based service with JMX hooks, but to do so from the Cloud. This means that in addition to enabling users to see inside a production Java (also JRuby) application deployed in a cloud or in a datacenter, users are free to monitor these processes from anywhere at any time.
Said Monitis Founder and CEO, Hovhannes Avoyan, “This is a big deal. This is a major step forward in the industry and we are excited to be at the forefront of this innovation. With this new addition Monitis becomes a true Swiss army knife for the IT administrators. Our host of useful tools in one simple, easy-to-use package can be configured in 5 minutes and require zero maintenance efforts.”
Monitis’ Cloud-based Application Monitoring Tool provides monitoring, troubleshooting, root cause diagnosis, plus pro-active planning tools such as load generators, scalability analysis, resource usage analysis and more. Specifically, the Java Application Monitoring tool:
• Monitors every metric, log, and configuration for all JMX resources in your inventory
• Identifies problem resources
• Controls all JMX resources on-demand
• Sends alerts on any measurement, log, or security event in your JMX environment
• Integrates fully into Monitis’ award-winning internal and external monitoring suite.
Specific metrics for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) Monitoring Tool include:
• General JVM Server Metric
o Availability and Uptime
o Object metrics
o Heap Memory Used, Committed and Max
o Loaded and Unloaded Classes
o Thread Count
• JVM Garbage Collector Metrics
• JVM Memory Pool Metrics
Monitis’ Cloud-based Java Application Monitoring Tool can monitor all leading commercial and open source J2EE application servers. The servers which provide JMX capabilities for monitoring include all leading products like: WebLogic, WebSphere, JBoss, Apache Geronimo, JRun, Tomcat, Glassfish, and Resin. Monitis monitoring of Sun Java System could also be done through the SNMP mechanism used by the administrative console of the web server.
As with all Monitis tools, the new Cloud-based Java Application Monitoring tool is designed to save IT managers massive amounts of time. Sign-up and set-up take less than 5 minutes, and with Monitis’ heralded, hyper-intuitive interface, there is no learning curve – an incredible claim given that Monitis is perhaps the most powerful application performance management tool available today. Its pay as you go model makes the procurement easy even for Universities, which may also benefit from academic pricing.
Last but not least, Monitis is making the remote JMX probe agent open source, creating unlimited space open for IT managers and system administrators to gain confidence by extending the tool and creating customized checks.
Java Management Extensions (JMX) is a Java technology that provides the tools for building distributed, Web-based, modular and dynamic solutions for managing and monitoring devices, applications, and service-driven networks.
