Subject [jira] [Commented] (LOG4J2-500) Unloading one webapp unloads JMX MBeans for all webapps
Date Mon, 03 Feb 2014 14:58:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LOG4J2-500?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13889525#comment-13889525

Remko Popma commented on LOG4J2-500:
------------------------------------

This is still in progress, but I've made the following changes in revisions 1563745 and 1563911:

*ObjectName changes*
{color:red}(NEW JMX ObjectNames ARE INCOMPATIBLE WITH BETA-9 AND OLDER VERSIONS){color}
* Appenders: {{org.apache.logging.log4j2:type=%s,component=Appenders,name=%s}}
* Async Appenders: {{org.apache.logging.log4j2:type=%s,component=AsyncAppenders,name=%s}}
* ContextSelector: {{org.apache.logging.log4j2:type=%s,component=ContextSelector}}
* LoggerConfigs: {{org.apache.logging.log4j2:type=%s,component=Loggers,name=%s}}
* LoggerContext: {{org.apache.logging.log4j2:type=%s}}
* RingBuffer for all loggers async: {{org.apache.logging.log4j2:type=%s,component=AsyncLoggerRingBuffer}}
* RingBuffer for mixed sync/async: {{org.apache.logging.log4j2:type=%s,component=Loggers,name=%s,subtype=RingBuffer}}
* StatusLogger: {{org.apache.logging.log4j2:type=%s,component=StatusLogger}}

(In case you wonder why these ObjectNames have {{type=LoggerContextName}} and not {{name=LoggerContextName}}.
JConsole will assume that every {{ObjectName}} has a {{type}} property and will prioritize
the {{type}} property when building the navigation tree. Google "JMX Best Practices" for details.)

*JMX Client GUI*
* Now has a tab for each active LoggerContext
* Each LoggerContext tab is itself a tabbed pane with a LoggerStatus tab and a configuration
editor tab
* Updated screenshots in JMX Client GUI manual page

*Granular Unloading*
LoggerContext will now only unregister its own MBeans when stopped (unloading a webapp only
unregisters the MBeans for that webapp)

*TODO*
* Test with web application (multiple active contexts, loading/unloading)
* Document somewhere that the MBean ObjectNames are changing with this release
* (Optional) Add screenshots with multiple active Logger Contexts
* (Optional) Dynamically update client GUI when a web application is loaded and MBeans are
registered (or unloaded and MBeans are unregistered)

>          Components: JMX

> As a stopgap solution for LOG4J2-406, all MBeans are unregistered when a LoggerContext
is stopped. 
> In an application server, multiple web applications can be deployed and undeployed independently
and a better solution would only unregister the MBeans associated with the web application
that is being undeployed.
> Current MBean ObjectNames look like this (simplified):
> {code}
> ...StatusLogger
> ...ContextSelector
> ...LoggerContext,ctx=%s
> ...LoggerConfig,ctx=%s,name=%s
> ...Appender,ctx=%s,name=%s
> ...
> {code}
> Assuming that every web application has a unique name, and this name becomes the name
of the LoggerContext, then one solution would be to create StatusLogger and ContextSelector
MBeans that have the LoggerContext name in their ObjectName:
> {code}
> ...StatusLogger,ctx=%s
> ...ContextSelector,ctx=%s
> ...LoggerContext,ctx=%s
> ...LoggerConfig,ctx=%s,name=%s
> ...Appender,ctx=%s,name=%s
> ...
> {code}
> This way, every web application would have its own StatusLogger and ContextSelector MBeans.
The MBeans may point to the same (shared) underlying StatusLogger and ContextSelector objects.
When a web application is undeployed, unregistering all MBeans associated with the LoggerContext
will not affect any MBeans associated with another web application (which has it own, separate,
LoggerContext).
