Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7144) Expose JMX with something like JMXProxyServlet
Date Wed, 01 Jun 2011 00:26:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7144?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13041907#comment-13041907
] 

Luke Lu commented on HADOOP-7144:
---------------------------------

LOG.error is always called before handleThrowable. It looked reasonable (it's not swallowing
all throwables and log the errors) to me at the time, as we should never let jetty handle
the exceptions/errors as stack traces would be display as part of the result, which is a security
no no.

OTOH, I think the logging should be handled by handleThrowable calls for better readability
and DRYness.

Looking closely though, I found follow correctness issues:

# content type should be set to "application/json; charset=utf8"
# need to response.setStatus(response.SC_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR) for all error cases

> Much of the Hadoop metrics and status info is available via JMX, especially since 0.20.100,
and 0.22+ (HDFS-1318, HADOOP-6728 etc.) For operations staff not familiar JMX setup, especially
JMX with SSL and firewall tunnelling, the usage can be daunting. Using a JMXProxyServlet (a
la Tomcat) to translate JMX attributes into JSON output would make a lot of non-Java admins
happy.
> We could probably use Tomcat's JMXProxyServlet code directly, if it's already output
some standard format (JSON or XML etc.) The code is simple enough to port over and can probably
integrate with the common HttpServer as one of the default servelet (maybe /jmx) for the pluggable
security.
