Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9160) Adopt Jolokia as the JMX HTTP/JSON bridge.
Date Thu, 01 Aug 2013 11:31:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9160?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13726355#comment-13726355
] 

Steve Loughran commented on HADOOP-9160:
----------------------------------------

While I don't have a personal need for this, if the option can be made low cost to add to
Hadoop, with some regression tests, there's no obvious harm in adding the feature. built-in
JMX has always sucked; we used to us MX4J for that reason.

Looking at the patch some more, HttpServer won't start up if jolokia isn't on the classpath.
That is something I'd reject. Better to

# mark JAR as optional in the POM
# make the servlet registration work even if jolokia isn't on the classpath (dynamic class
load or separate class to do the registration -a class only invoked iff jolokia is enabled)

> The current JMX HTTP bridge has served its purpose, while a more complete solution: Jolokia
(formerly Jmx4Perl) has been developed/matured over the years.
> Jolokia provides comprehensive JMX features over HTTP/JSON including search and list
of JMX attributes and operations metadata, which helps to support inter framework/platform
compatibility. It has first class language bindings for Perl, Python, Javascript, Java.
> It's trivial (see demo patch) to incorporate Jolokia servlet into Hadoop HTTP servers
and use the same security mechanisms.
> Adopting Jolokia will substantially improve the manageability of Hadoop and its ecosystem.
