Hi,

You can use the JMXMiniProbe to moitor a JVM application "remotely"... The "JMXProbe.war" It is designed to be loaded into an Application server's context. It can then monitor the "local" JVM directly or any JVM remotely via RMI. For more details please see: https://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/jmx/remote/jconsole.html (The JMXMiniProbe uses the same method to connect to the JVM to be monitored)

As far as the error you are getting.... It looks like you are missing some of the libraries. They are all in the WAR that is part of the distribution. If you are running it on the command-line, please unzip the WAR and run it using one of the scripts in the ".\bin" directory

Dear mnusyirwan

PRTG has no build-in sensor for this. As PRTG offers a few interfaces to run custom scripts as sensors, you might be able to create a custom sensor to monitor your Java applications.

Hi Sved,

The batch-files/shell-scripts are in the project root directory. "JMXMiniProbe*.*" Please run them from there.
The batch/shell scripts get generated by the build process, so either download the release package or build from source.
There are several variations,
Direct run.
Run from WAR
