    SNMP Agent, for Jboss managment

    amir Newbie

      I want to manage my Jboss server using NNM (OpenView) as a manager, and snmp as the communication protocol.

      Is there any exiting snmp agent for monitoring Jboss?

      Thanks in advance

          Hi


          The hell is exciting about SNMP. It is a pain in the ass.


          You could use Sun's JDMK or AdventNET but both are commercial applications. But I want to see you writing the stupid MIB in order to use SNMP.

            Thanks for your response.

            Its seems strange that the Jboss product don’t have SNMP Agent (all other “well known” application’s servers, like weblogic, has SNMP agents, that comes as an integral part of the package).

            1. Does someone ever write SNMP agent for Jboss (using JDMK, or any other package) and can share with us his work?
            2. How can I get the Jboss API, for getting to the values I want to monitor?

                  Strange only in the sense that thereçs nothing "simple" in the Simple Network Management Protocol, so no one has bothered to do it, cause they really havençt had the need for it.

                  If itçs your itch, and youçre willing to scratch, we will happily accept this donation of code.

                  On the other hand, developing solid code takes alot of time, energy, and some cases even talent, so maybe it is easier just to blow the few thousand dollars on an existing, proprietary adaptor if you really need to have SNMP connectivity.

                  There is at least one Open Source SNMP package out there for Java, I donçt have the link handy at the moment, but that could be used as a basis for an Open Source SNMP adaptor.
