ManageEngine Introduces JBoss Troubleshooting Upgrades To Its Applications Manager

Dubai, UAE — June 16, 2013 — ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today launched key JBoss monitoring and user interface upgrades to its application performance monitoring solution, Applications Manager. The move accelerates troubleshooting of the JBoss Application Server and JBoss Enterprise Application Platform by providing Applications Manager users with unmatched, real-time visibility and insight into the performance of JBoss servers and the Java EE applications that run on them.

JBoss continues to enjoy a dominant position in the application server market. Meanwhile, application trends driven by mobile and cloud technologies continue to position the application server — and by extension, JBoss — at the center of most companies' IT infrastructure. With a growing number of business-critical applications running on JBoss, IT teams need comprehensive, consolidated performance monitoring views of the JBoss servers to maximize service, minimize downtime and rapidly troubleshoot any issues.

“We enhanced Applications Manager's JBoss performance monitoring to help IT operations teams ensure their critical apps perform optimally at all times, all the while maintaining a low overhead on the JBoss server,” said Sridhar Iyengar, vice president, product management at ManageEngine. “But we didn't want to simply overwhelm IT teams with more data, so we also streamlined the user interface to accelerate performance tuning and troubleshooting.”

JBoss Performance Monitoring with Applications Manager

Applications Manager now monitors a new set of JBoss key performance indicators, which were previously not exposed for monitoring by JBoss. The new monitored KPIs include metrics pertaining to memory usage, class loading, thread usage, transactions, JDBC data sources, persistence, as well as details about EJBs, servlets and JMS.

Similarly, Applications Manager now monitors JBoss transaction details with metrics such as transactions committed, aborted, timeout, nested, heuristics, inflight and more. Users will be notified if there are threshold violations for any of these metrics. Together, the new KPI and transaction information help IT teams quickly get to the root cause of performance problems, accelerating their overall troubleshooting efforts.

Applications Manager supports both agentless and agent-based monitoring for JBoss. IT teams can choose the methodology that best suits their requirements, using agent-based monitoring to collect more data or agentless monitoring to reduce overhead.

The JBoss monitor in Applications Manager has been simplified as part of an overall upgrade to the web client user interface. Now, the JBoss interface uses a multi-tabbed approach to display performance stats. Each tab shows performance metrics for a specific component, so users can see a lot of charts and stats without doing a lot of vertical scrolling.

Among its many benefits, JBoss monitoring helps IT personnel:

•Quickly identify problematic code and troubleshoot memory leaks in Java runtime before they impact customers.
•Track and optimize the user experience of business-critical applications deployed on JBoss by accurately gauging database performance, tracing transaction flow and viewing method-level metrics to quickly identify a performance bottleneck.
•Fine tune the JDBC connection pool settings to avoid timeouts, reduce overhead to transaction processing and maximize throughput on hardware.
•Reduce manual work for IT operations personnel by automating repetitive tasks such as automatically restarting the JBoss server when the memory usage exceeds threshold.
 
Pricing and Availability

The new JBoss monitoring features are available immediately and included in the price of Applications Manager. Prices for the Applications Manager Professional Edition start at $795 for up to 25 servers or applications. A free, fully functional, 30-day trial version is available at http://ow.ly/7evOs.
