The goal of JavaMelody is to monitor Java or Java EE application servers in QA and production environments. It is a tool to measure and calculate statistics on the real operation of an application depending on the usage of the application by users. JavaMelody is easy to integrate in most applications. JavaMelody is mainly based on charts and statistics of requests, such as memory, CPU, HTTP, EJB, Spring, Guice, JSP, JSF, Struts, or SQL requests.
Crash Dummy is a Java Web application to help IT professionals set up Java application server environments. It has several features to help make this easier, including simulating failures and diagnostics. Crash Dummy is particularly helpful for setting up complex clustered environments and monitoring infrastructure.
NConf is a Web tool for configuring the Nagios monitoring software. It differs from similar tools by offering enterprise-class features like templates, dependencies, and the ability to configure a large-scale, distributed Nagios server topology. It lets you effortlessly maintain a distributed Nagios topology. It has a user-friendly GUI. It features host and service templates, a graphical dependency viewer, multiple authentication modes, a Nagios configuration importer, a CSV file importer, and a Perl database API. The data schema is customizable and expandable.
JSend NSCA is a Java API and command line tool for sending Nagios Passive Checks to the Nagios NSCA add-on. By using the JSend NSCA core API, you can easily integrate your Java applications into a Nagios monitored environment, thereby notifying Nagios of problems and issues during the running of your application. The JSend NSCA CLI command line tool wraps the API and allows you to send passive checks from the command line.
Lilith is a logging and access event viewer for the Logback logging framework. It has features comparable to Chainsaw, a logging event viewer for log4j. This means that it can receive logging events from remote applications using Logback as their logging backend. It uses files to buffer the received events locally, so it is possible to keep vast amounts of logging events at your fingertip while still being able to check only the ones you are really interested in by using filtering conditions.
Nagios is a host, service, and network monitoring system that will watch your network and alert you to problems before your clients or end-users do. The system runs checks on hosts and services that you specify using plugins that return status information to Nagios. When problems are encountered, the system will send notifications to system administrators so that they can take action on the problem. The JumpBox for Nagios gives you a head start to using the system. It eliminates the complexity involved in getting the application installed, and allows you to focus on the configuration for your specific environment. Since Nagios is based on plugins, depending on what you want to do this will vary in complexity.
TSM monitor is a Web application written in PHP to help TSM administrators quickly get reports and health status information from their TSM servers. It generates its content dynamically so one can easily add or modify queries to adapt the application to one’s own needs. It features customizable queries, a dynamically generated navigation menu, an overview page with traffic light logic, graphical timetable charts for queries with start and end time (like backups and schedules), multiple servers, login protection (authentication against a default TSM server), and result caching for better performance.
