We are trying to monitor our Dynatrace server from another monitoring system. To do this we have to enable JMX with remote server access on the Dynatrace server. On other systems like Aetos/Karaf this is done by adding startup parameters such as -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.port=1099 -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.rmi.port=44444 -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.authenticate=true (and others) etc. When this is configured properly, you can connect with jconsole and other monitoring systems.
How do you do this on a Dynatrace server, and will Dynatrace Appmon run properly with JMX enabled for remote access and remote monitoring?
To enable JMX Monitoring and Management:
I tried that before I posted this. Tried it again, and it's not working - can't connect with our monitoring system or with jconsole on port 1099. The document refers only to Appmon specific MBeans. What I'm looking for is gathering Java GC data for the frontend, server and self-monitoring processes from an external monitoring system using JMX.
