External monitoring applications would require event details from
AXIS2/Synapse for instrumenting management information and other stats let
me know how are we going to expose it.

Out of the following, which one are we planning to use:
1) Using an MBean to broadcast notifications from AXIS2
2) Using a Synapse mediator to send notification to a remote listener

The other thing that we might need to deal with is ObjectNames from a JMX

Thoughts please!

Best regards

FYI: the information that could be required is, would have a schema once the
information is finalized.

Hi Soumadeep,

The features provided by the management system is seperated into different
components as much as possible. For example administrating services are done
by a seperate class (ServiceManager) and adminstrating modules are done by
another class (ModuleManager). Interfaces for these different manageable
parts are also provided by seperate classes. As an example web services
interface for adminstrating services is provided by the "AxisServices" web
service and module adminstrating can be accessed by the "AxisModules" web

This seperation holds for management features as well. All statistics
monitoring are done by a seperate set of classes (DynamicStatsManager,
ServiceStats and OperationStats) and the interface is provided by the
"AxisDynamicStats" web service. We can add more management functionality as
new features to existing classes or as completely new classes. Is this kind
of seperation ok?

Beacause of this seperation, we can even pack administration and management
as seperate libraries. I will implement security for all web services
interfaces based on WS-Security. I think this will satisfy the security
concerns over allowing administrating functionality via web services.

I am planing to add following features to the management system:

- JMX based interface.
- Improving the web based management console to act as a JMX client.
- Security for WS interfaces based on WS-Security.
- More statistics monitoring to capture statistics pointed out by you and
Steve Loughran.

Please give your ideas about this and any other things which should go into
management system.

Please see my comments inline. I think we need to be specific about
management related features and administration related features.
I would suggest you please look at (Mukund's) code for management interfaces
in the scratch area.

I am sending the initial work I have done on Axis2 management interface as
the attached patch.

Currently it provides following feathers via web services interface:
[Soumadeep] These are Administration related features

- Get all available services, operations and modules
- Configuring parameters at all levels (i.e. Global, Service, Operation)
- Get modules engaged at all levels
- Engaging modules at all levels
- Get available service groups and services grouped under those service
- Get available transports and configure transport parameters
[Soumadeep] And this is Management related
- Get statistics about entire Axis2 engine, individual services and
operations (number of in messages, out messages, fault in messages, fault
out messages)

A documentation about building and installing the management interface is
included in the "management\xdocs\management.html".

Please commit the patch to the scratch area -
