Glassfish Monitoring Tools

A Solution for Glassfish Monitoring that Keeps Production Environments Humming

Glassfish monitoring can refer to a range of different tools and approaches for monitoring the performance of web and application servers. At its most basic, Glassfish monitoring means collecting machine- and infrastructure-level metrics like Disk I/O, throughput, CPU utilization, and memory usage. These metrics help operations teams get a pulse on their infrastructure, but they fall short when it comes to finding, isolating and troubleshooting problems that originate in the application code.

GlassFish Server Benefits

  • Monitor the performance and availability of your GlassFish Server
  • Pro-actively alert GlassFish Server health and performance issues
  • Detect and Resolve Memory Leaks in GlassFish Server
  • Troubleshoot and find root cause of application performance in minutes
  • Correlate and Trend Key GlassFish Server metrics over time

Monitor Business Transactions

AppDynamics can also auto-discover business transactions from common entry points in GlassFish and its JVM such as servlets, struts actions, spring MVC, web services calls and even custom POJO entry points. From this context users can see how business transactions execute through various Java components like SOAP, EJB, JDBC, JMS, CICS as well as remote calls cross JVM and CLR calls for distributed transactions.

Real-Time Alerting for GlassFish

AppDynamics also provides dynamic SLA base-lining and pro-active alerting so that performance issues can be notified as they surface, giving application and production support teams an early warning before end user experience and service levels start to breach.

OutOfMemoryException and Memory Leaks

AppDynamics also monitors GlassFish Server memory providing the user with visibility of heap usage, garbage collection and utilization of key memory pools over-time. AppDynamics can also track and monitor memory leaks automatically inside GlassFish Server and its JVM with minimal user analysis allowing root cause to be found in minutes instead of days or weeks.
