SCOM CEP meeting on cross plat and JEE monitoring – part 2

In the first part of the quick report on the highlights of the SCOM 2012 CEP meeting on cross platform monitoring and JEE monitoring we talked about cross platform monitoring. In this second part of the same we handle the JEE monitoring.
JEE monitoring
So what nice stuff can be monitored?
IBM WebSphere 6.1 and 7.0
Oracle WebLogic 11gRel1 and 10gRel3
Redhat JBoss 4.2 and 5.1 and 6
Apache Tomcat 5.5 and 6.0 and 7
This list can’t yet be monitored throughout all supported operating systems. In Windows and RHEL and SLES they can be, but Solaris and AIX have a shorter list.

First on how to get started on Java monitoring…
Importing management packs of course… so they will go out and discover the app servers and see if they are running. Next deploy BeanSpy in order to check if the application servers are responsive and how it it performing, to check what apps are deployed and how they are running. From there move on to run the Java templates in order to check the status of the application component, monitoring throughput and so on.
