I am looking for a way to pull JMX string data into AppMon and display it on a dashboard. Only numeric data can be collected using a Custom JMX measure but I have to believe this is possible because AppMon has already made a similar data available in the Status Overview dashlet.
Any help is appreciated.
I have several cases where the health of an application is presented via JMX string data, not numeric. In these cases I want to use dT to query these values and make them available in a dashboard. I don't care how these are presented as my intent is to collect this data via REST and use it in other monitoring tools.
Is there anything that could be built into a plugin, monitor, or other to expose this data?
A custom monitor can only return numeric values. Would it be possible for your custom monitor to "convert" the string value into a numeric value that reprsents the state, e.g: 1 for a string value of "OK"
The only other thing you can do is to write a custom monitor that returns numeric values for those things that are numeric - and write other information to e.g: a logfile. Not really what you are probably looking for - but at least a workaround.
I will check what our plans are going forward - again - here it would help having some specific examples
Hello @Katarzyna K.
The JMX MBean Server sensor captures JMX based measurements for supported Application Servers. The sensor doesn't have any user configurable properties.
