How To Use Monitoring Agents

From Opentaps Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Most monitoring agents will need to be declared as arguments to the JVM. In order to do that, dimply edit the startofbiz.sh (or .bat on windows) script and replace the following:

  VMARGS="$MEMIF $MISC $DEBUG $RMIIF $ADMIN"

By:

  MONITORING="the agent parameters"
  VMARGS="$MEMIF $MISC $DEBUG $RMIIF $ADMIN $MONITORING"

New Relic RPM

New Relic RPM is a web-based service which helps you monitor, diagnose, and fix application performance problems in real time. Statistics about your application are uploaded to the New Relic server, which gives you information about response times, database queries, and Web transactions. The basic monitoring service is free, and additional services can help you troubleshoot and optimize your application.

First download the zip file containing the jar and download the YML file (available on the same page). Unzip the zip file and put the YML file in the same directory.

Then edit your startofbiz.sh or startofbiz.bat and add

  MONITORING="-javaagent:/full/path/to/newrelic.jar"

NOTE: this needs to be the full path, like /home/me/opentaps/newrelic/newrelic.jar, not just the relative path from your opentaps directory.

Next change VMARGS to

  VMARGS="$MEMIF $MISC $DEBUG $RMIIF $ADMIN $MONITORING"

Finally start Opentaps with the startofbiz.sh and you should start receiving data on their dashboard.

JConsole

See http://java.sun.com/developer/technicalArticles/J2SE/jconsole.html

  MONITORING="-Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote"

Then start Opentaps with the startofbiz.sh script and use JDK_HOME/bin/jconsole to connect to the opentaps JVM and start monitoring.
