Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-3441) Server monitoring and management
Date Fri, 24 Aug 2007 00:12:31 GMT


Anita Kulshreshtha commented on GERONIMO-3441:

Nice work! A graphical representation of the stats will be a good thing to have. However,
I would like us to use JSR77 for monitoring and management. A good starting point will be
to use J2EEManaged Objects and its StatisticsProvider model.  Thus every time a new thing
has to be monitored, writing a new "controller" is not required. The current design requires
writing a new controller. The controller should collect statistics in a components agnostics
way.  The management plugin will be able to extract all the information from it using JSR77
Stats model. If you have not already seen, the JMXViewer in admin console has a Stats tab
to display statistics in JSR77 format for all  managed objects that are statistics providers.
 Currently only  tomcat's connector and deployed web modules are statistics provider. We need
to do the same for Jetty.

> Currently, there is not a good way of surfacing Geronimo's server information so that
an administrator can monitor the server's status. The architecture of using MBeans is established,
but not fully exploited. This enhancement will take advantage of what Geronimo currently offers
and extend it so that a server can tap into a cluster of servers and extract information from
specific Geronimo servers or even aggregates of Geronimo servers.
> The goal is to have one machine be able to reach out to all Geronimo servers in order
to fetch data or even alter their state. This will be especially useful in the case of someone
having to monitor a large number of Geronimo servers.
> Viet Nguyen and myself have completed a bit of framework towards this goal, to be attached
to this jira
> In-depth information can be found in the confluence wiki here
