Subject Re: Visualisation Wish List
Date Sun, 23 Jan 2011 00:27:09 GMT

I'll throw my 2 cents in...I would find all of those bullet points useful.
Right now, I'd say the single most common way I interact with ActiveMQ is by
watching http://<host>:8161/admin/queues.jsp.  I use nagios to monitor for
out-of-the-ordinary conditions, but under certain circumstances I watch the
queues directly (i.e. if one/some get backed up for one reason or another).
There's probably a slicker way to do it, but that's what I find myself

So being able to see a bar graph of destination message counts, or
throughput rates, or the like, would be really helpful.  Might be tricky to
accommodate brokers with few or many some filtering might
be useful.  i.e. "only show me the most active" or "break the graph up into
multiple graphs of N destinations each" or something like that.

In terms of lieu of something fancy (i.e. a detailed stats page
with its own "drill-down graphs" or stats), simplest for starters might be
just to link through to /admin/browse.jsp?JMSDestination=<dest>

Anyway, +1 from me on any built-in visualization enhancements.
