JMX support

We have a number of Java application servers in our environment, typically web applications running in Glassfish/Tomcat.

It would be great to use PRTG to monitor the state of these servers and their applications using JMX.

Does PRTG have support for JMX?

glassfish java jmx

We do not support JMX natively, but using our HTTP sensors or using custom sensors you should be able to monitor your web applications.

Maybe the following links are starting points for you:

Thanks for the reply.

However, I would like to monitor some JVM characteristics, such as heap space. A HTTP sensor does not seem to be ideal in this case.

However, PRTG supports SNMP. Java 5 has SNMP support. So, I have enabled Java SNMP support in my virtual machine.

Using snmpwalk, I get a valid response for Heap Memory OID.

snmpwalk -c public -v2c remoteMachine:1161 .1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.145.3.163.1.1.2.11 iso.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.145.3.163.1.1.2.11.0 = Counter64: 149638968

However, in PRTG I get the following error message "No such instance (SNMP error # 223)". I get the same error using SNMP tester.
