Java run-time monitoring, Part 3: Monitoring performance and availability of an application's ecosystem


Monitoring hosts, databases, and messaging; management and visualization of performance data

This concludes my series. I have presented guidelines, some general performance-monitoring techniques, and specific development patterns you can implement to enhance or build your own monitoring system. Collecting and analyzing good data can significantly improve your application uptime and performance. I encourage developers to participate in the process of monitoring production applications: there is no better source of information to determine and experience what is really going on with the software you've written as it runs under load. This feedback is invaluable as part of an ongoing improvement cycle. Happy monitoring!
