Whitepaper: Practical Considerations When Instrumenting Applications With JMX

by SL CorporationJul 01, 2008

The best way to instrument Java applications is to use JMX. But JMX is complicated. Most well-documented JMX sources focus primarily on common usage conventions and design patterns, but none of these address challenges involving instrumenting custom monitoring applications with JMX.

SL Corporation has over 25 years of experience in monitoring and visualization, with particular expertise in Java. The purpose of this paper is to offer recommendations on how software developers can best overcome challenges that arise when custom application monitoring requirements grow to involve aggregation, dynamic analysis, and visualization of real-time data.

Topics include: Common errors to avoid involving data content and design of MBeans, key requirements that should not be overlooked when instrumenting applications with JMX, and recommendations that will ensure minimization of client-side development efforts.

Whitepaper: Business Activity Monitoring: Process Control for the Enterprise

by SL CorporationJul 01, 2008

The nature of real-time information is evolving; making requirements for analysis and visualization of data much more complex and sophisticated. Integration of disparate applications for functions like supply chain management, customer relations management, or business intelligence has created a new and unique set of challenges.

The purpose of this white paper is to show successful methods for dealing with real-time data in Business Activity Monitoring systems by leveraging key lessons from the process control industry�s decades of experience, and applying these principles to today�s more complex, multi-dimensional business environment.

Key topics include: Important requirements and techniques to know when dealing with real-time, multi-dimensional data, successful approaches implemented by the process control industry in dealing with real-time data in Business Activity Monitoring systems, and reasons why the combination of both old and new technologies are key to success for analysis and visualization of real-time data in full-featured BAM applications.
