Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Moving the Monitoring Plugin Into Trunk
Date Thu, 06 Dec 2007 00:29:33 GMT
Viet, 
   Thanks for working on the monitoring console. A lot still remains to
be done. There are architectural issues which need to be addressed:
    Currently the agent (aka mrc-server) needs to reside in same jvm as
the server being monitored. It consumes significant DB resources. 
    The Graph builder plots CountStatistics correctly. It does not
provide a way (minor point) to choose/plot both the raw count and the
throughput, i.e. count/sec. The graphs for TimeStatistics and
BoundedRangeStatistics are wrong. This is a serious shortcoming. I
would like it to be fixed before we can talk about releasing it. 

Thanks
Anita
