Jmx4Perl provides an alternate way of accessing Java JEE Server management interfaces that are based on JMX (Java Management Extensions). It is an agent-based approach where a small Web application deployed on the application server provides HTTP/JSON-based access to JMX MBeans registered within the application server. It is set up from a handful of Perl modules, which can be integrated seamlessly in your own programs. It also includes a Nagios plugin, check_jmx4perl, a jmx4perl command line tool for remote JMX queries and operations, and a readline-based JMX shell j4psh, with context sensitive command completion and syntax highlighting.
Shinken is an advanced monitoring system that is based on Nagios, but redesigned and rewritten from scratch while maintaining compatibility. It can monitor all IT devices from systems to end user applications. In case of a failure, Shinken can alert the operation engineers so they can promptly repair it. It has the same capabilities as Nagios along with more advanced built-in facilities such as load balanced and high availability monitoring.
