JMX Mini-probe : Configuring Custom MBean Attributes Sensor




Maybe my question is obvious for lots of you, but after reading PRTG documentation and forums about JMX I was not able to find an answer. I need to monitor specific attributes available through JMX. For this purpose I plan to define a Custom MBean Attributes Sensor. This sensor has to retrieve the value of a queue size (counter).

I found no example on how to setup the sensor, more exactly how and where to define the way to reach this JMX attribute using its name. I also go to GitHub to see if documentation where attached, but found nothing too. Is it possible for some of you to share the steps to follow ? Or at least :

  • confirm JMX mini-probe supports, through the Custome MBean sensor the access to specific attributes in an application
  • if you have already done that
  • clarify the steps/requirements/contraints/limitations you are aware of about this Up to now, I am completely stuck on Customer Mbean sensor settings :-(

Thanks a lot for your support. Best regards,


access attribute custom jmx mbean
