The Better JVM gets even Better Monitoring – Enhanced JMX Production Monitoring for Zing

The Better JVM gets even Better Monitoring – Enhanced JMX Production Monitoring for Zing

Feb 11, 2015 | 2 MIN READ

Zing has always had JMX capability. That part’s not new. The part that is new is the addition of MXBeans that clearly describe the elasticity of Zing’s heap memory pools and its fully concurrent garbage collection. Because Zing doesn’t have many of the limitations of other JVMs (which is a great thing!), the JMX information from standard beans missed some important information on how Zing was operating. The new Zing MXBeans also have added visibility into metrics previously only available through Zing Vision, our low-overhead production monitoring tool.

With this expanded JMX support, IT operations can now use one tool or framework to monitor hundreds or thousands of JVM instances in their datacenter, whether they are Zing, Zulu, HotSpot or any other JMX-compliant application.  It makes Zing easier to monitor as part of a company’s overall IT operation.

The new MXBeans in Zing provide insight into:

These JMX enhancements don’t replace Zing Vision.  Once an alert is received, Zing Vision provides deep dive inspection capability so you can find and fix the root cause quickly. It also provides a richer set of data and charts on the operation of the JVM.

The new version of Zing (15.02) is available for download. Give the new MXBeans a try, and let us know what you think!
