Can we monitor vintage jboss running on JDK 1.5:
2 10:14:53,262 INFO [Server] Release ID: JBoss [Trinity] 4.2.3.GA (build: SVNTag=JBoss_4_2_3_GA date=200807181417)
Can a recent version of the rhq agent running with its own 1.7 JDK monitor this beast?
What are the limitations if any? Can it be instrumented, what should I not try? Can the agent connect to the older JVM?
RHQ is still shipped with plugins for management and monitoring of Jboss AS 3,4,5 and 6.
However on the details on the limitations one of the devs will have to answer about how this is implemented and how easily to connect to the management interface.
For older versions I suspect JMX is used for connection.
