Java Management Extensions (JMX)

Tools for managing and monitoring applications, system objects, devices and service oriented networks. Resources are represented by MBeans which can be dynamically loaded and instantiated. JMX has a 3-level architecture:

  • The Probe level: contains the MBeans instrumenting the resource
  • The Agent level: MBeanServer acting as intermediary between the MBean and the applications
  • The Remote Management level: enables remote applications to access to the MBeanServer through Connectors (RMI/IIOP/JMS/WS-*) and Adaptors (SNMP/HTTP)
