    jboss instance and application management

    rob roth Newbie

      Forgive me if this is the wrong forum for this post, I'm not entirely familiar with JBOSS or what JMX is, but I'm looking for information on management, so it seemed appropriate.

      I'm an IT guy with a company that develops in JBOSS. I was asked to find some sort of software that not only monitors JBOSS instances, but individual applications within those instances (we multihome) and allow stopping and starting of these individual applications from the interface.

      I've written a ton of shell scripts to try to manage all this, but a nice web based solution that all the developers could use for stop/start and the IT guys can use for monitoring would be ideal. Does such a tool exist (Windows or Linux preferably)?

      I've come across some instance monitoring tools (such as ManageEngine Applications Manager 6) but nothing that delves into the individual application level. Thanks for any ideas.

          Stay tuned! The JBoss Network team will be releasing administration/monitoring tools in the near future to address these needs. There's information on the JBoss Network on our website. More details will be released in the coming weeks and months.

            ManageEngine Applications Manager can monitor your JBoss instances and also your web applications if you have the management information exposed via JBossMX or SNMP.

            http://appmanager.com/jmx-console-snmp-console.html

            It does not provide stopping and starting of these individual applications. But there is a provision to execute a script (.bat or .sh) from the Web Console. If you can write a script then this feature may be useful.

            We also have an enhancement coming where we can execute any custom script and graph, alert, report the attributes returned.

            fyi : Applications Manager supports Windows and Linux.
