Application performance monitoring with Hyperic HQ
Monitor a Java application server with Hyperic HQ.
Hyperic HQ is an open source enterprise monitoring suite that includes all the essential features of an enterprise monitoring tool. What sets Hyperic apart from other open source suites is its ease of configuration and its focus on application layer performance metrics. Monitoring custom application servers, databases, and web servers is often a tedious task that requires a lot of custom retrofitting. Hyperic breaks the mold by letting you collect application-specific performance metrics automatically using a system of logical defaults.
The days of only monitoring system-level services and network connectivity are over. Hyperic belongs to a new breed of monitoring tools that can peer into complex application stacks. Hyperic HQ excels at monitoring applications and providing performance statistics for the most common application servers, database servers, web servers, network devices, and applications. Hyperic is an excellent choice for monitoring a Java application server, such as a JBoss server system.
Hyperic HQ monitors hosts with the use of an agent-based model; a Java-based agent is installed on target hosts that collect data and feed the information to a management server. Hyperic provides easy-to-configure installers for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X (PPC), and Solaris. Java 1.4+ is required for the management server and agents. Because Hyperic is a Java-based monitoring application, it can run on any platform that supports Java.
