As a leading JavaEE application server in the market, GlassFish is a popular choice for customers. An effective application performance management strategy involves the efficient monitoring of performance and availability. Appdynamics allows you to monitor and detect application codes running on GlassFish and obtain visibility of how it is carried out through the JVM in a production environment. Users can understand the actual utilization of latency and also learn how system resources are used by the various applications.
GlassFish Server Benefits:
Monitor availability and performance of your GlassFish Server
Alert GlassFish Server performance and health issues
Detects and Resolves all Memory Leaks in GlassFish Server
Find root cause of application performance quickly
Correlate and Trend Key GlassFish Server metrics
Monitor Business Transactions
WIth AppDynamics you can discover business transactions in GlassFish and its JVM from common entry points. This allows users to comprehend how business transactions are carried through Java components like JMS, CICS, SOAP, EJB, JDBC as well as remote calls.
Real-Time Alerting for GlassFish
Get dynamic SLA base-lining and pro-active alerting with Appdynamics. All performance problems can be notified whenever they arise. Application and production support teams a therefore have a quick and early warning to avoid breach of user experience and service levels.
OutOfMemoryException and Memory Leaks
AppDynamics also enables the tracking and monitoring of memory leaks inside GlassFish Server. Its JVM with minimal user analysis gets to the root cause quickly and easily. Users can also enjoy garbage collection visibility and key memory pools utilization.
Monitor Key GlassFish Server Metrics
Average Response Time
Servlet Session Counts
Enterprise Java Bean (EJB) Pool Statistics
Database Connectivity (JDBC) Connection Pool Statistics
Custom MBeans attributes via JMX
JVM Memory and Heap Usage
"AppDynamics replaced 5 tools we once used to try to troubleshoot application problems. Today, everyone goes to AppDynamics to quickly determine the root cause of the issue."
Apdex is Fatally Flawed
"I’ve been looking into a lot of different statistical methods and algorithms lately and one particularly interesting model is Apdex. If you haven’t heard of it yet, Apdex has been adopted by many companies that sell monitoring software...."
Just how useful is JMX Monitoring?
"I’ve always been a skeptic of JMX monitoring, largely because I felt it was often wrongly positioned as the pillar stone of application monitoring software. An application for me is a collection of business services or transactions that users perform, that causes application logic (code) to request and process data. Without visibility into the performance of business transactions and code execution, JMX monitoring can be seen as just another infrastructure monitoring tool for the JVM. However, when application and JMX monitoring are combined into a single tool, they can offer powerful capabilities for managing application performance...."
