Java SIG: JMX in the realworld: Lessons from the Trenches




    The Monthly Meeting of the Java SIG

     Topic: JMX in the realworld: Lessons from the Trenches  

    Tom Lubinski of SL Corporation will make suggestions on what to think about in structuring your JMX data so it can be easily retrieved, viewed, analyzed and acted upon for monitoring and managing your applications.  His talk may help you avoid this common refrain after your first JMX attempt:  "if we had thought about how this data would be used, we might have structured it differently". 

    Tom will discuss:

    * Tradeoffs in choosing Data structures and Property Columns 
    * Effective Use of Wildcard Syntax
    * Adapting your data for Monitoring and Dashboards 
    * What to know about Polling and Notifications

    He will give examples of what to do and what not to do, gained from working with companies like Oracle, BEA, Orbitz and others. He will finish with a demo of a real-time JMX monitoring application.


    Tom Lubinski founded SL Corporation in 1984 and is currently the CEO and CTO.  SL Corp. has been developing java applications since 1995 including J/Developer and Enterprise RTView. Prior to starting SL Corp, he attended the California Institute of Technology and developed a substantial consulting practice in Object-Oriented Programming and Graphical Visualization Systems.
