Subject How to use JConsole to connect to a Cassandra cluster in Amazon EC2?
Date Thu, 03 Mar 2011 02:10:35 GMT
I want to use JConsole to look at the Cassandra's MBean's attributes (like
Memtable stats).

But since my Cassandra nodes are running on Amazon EC2 instances, I have to
use an ssh login with a ppk authentication file (when connecting via Putty,

It looks like two popular approaches to establishing a JConsole connection
to an EC2 node are:
-  VNC (can't use b/c my linux nodes don't have a GUI)
- run JConsole on the remote box and export its display locally via X (would
bet too slow b/c of latency between Amazon datacenter and me)

What techniques are others using to connect to EC2 nodes with JConsole?
