Subject Re: Remotely monitoring Java Processes with JMeter
Date Tue, 02 Mar 2010 11:49:59 GMT
Hi Brett

For the requirements 1 and 2 that i have mentioned below , i dont think 
we can use the tools that you have mentioned , Like nagios , zenoss etc. 
Because i need to access the database and get some values , validate 
them and then based on the assertion results i need to send or not send 
an email notification.

As far as the requirement 1 goes i am still exploring on how i can use 
nagios but not successful so far. I have posted to their forums. I am 
hoping to get a reply soon.
