Subject Re: Current Connection Count for ActiveMQ broker
Date Fri, 24 Jan 2014 14:24:34 GMT
Thanks for the clarification on the embedded broker question.

A broker filter will do the job, as you described.

On the other hand, you could have written a tool that connects to the broker
JVM via JMX and gets the counts that way, without putting custom code into
the broker JVM.  Such a tool can be handy for grabbing all kinds of broker

As James mentions, using jconsole or visualvm (JMX clients), are great tools
for a user to quickly and easily get the connection count from a broker.

For automated logging, a good toolset here is OpenTSDB for metrics
collection (where connection count is one metric) and jmxtrans to collect
those statistics and push into OpenTSDB, which gives powerful reporting,
such as graphs of metrics, and can be used with monitoring and alerting
tools.  Then it is possible to collect other stats of high importance with
ActiveMQ, such as average enqueue times.  Note that I would have to check if
connection count specifically can easily be obtained with that toolset.  If
not, it should be a minor enhancement, to either jmxtrans or activemq, to
obtain that stat.
