    End-user expectations for responsive application performance have never been higher. Users are expecting richer content to be deployed across the web with increasingly faster response-times. Insight into the performance of mission-critical systems is a critical but often neglected component of Enterprise IT. Organizations are failing to properly plan for, and address application performance as a critical aspect of every system design, and are paying the price in production.


    Managing your JBoss middleware environment doesn't have to be difficult. From getting an updated inventory of your current JBoss infrastructure, to managing the configurations of your various JBoss servers and applications, to handling ongoing upgrades and patches - JBoss Operations Network and its upstream project, RHQ, can address all of your JBoss management needs including support for monitoring base operating system information on six operating systems as well as management of Apache httpd, JBoss Application Server, Tomcat and other related projects. Composed by a pluggable framework, the enterprise management solutions provide administration, monitoring, alerting, operational control and configuration in an enterprise setting with fine-grained security and an advanced extension model.


    When combined with OC Systems' transaction monitoring and performance diagnostics product RTI v3.2 (, the performance management capabilities of JBoss ON v3.0 are greatly extended with deeper transaction based metrics and diagnostics, providing a solution for pro-actively managing application performance across the lifecycle and bridging the gaps between operations and development.
