Management and monitoring
From JPPF Documentation version 2.x
|Main Page > Management and monitoring|
Management and monitoring are important parts of a grid platform. With these features it is possible to observe the health and status of the grid components, and directly or remotely transform their behavior.
JPPF provides a comprehensive set of monitoring and management functionalities, based on the Java Management Extensions (JMX) standard. In addition to this, a set of APIs enables a simplified access to the management functions, whether locally or remotely.
Management and monitoring functions are available for JPPF servers and nodes and provided as MBeans. We will see these MBeans in detail and then look at the APIs to access them.
All JPPF MBeans are standard MBeans registered with the platform MBean server. This means, among other things, that the can be accessed through external JMX-based applications or APIs, such as VisualVM.
