JDK 1.5.0 + JVM Stats

#1 Post by jkstraw » Mon Feb 19, 2007 8:13 am

Attached is a template I worked on late last week.

It is not 100% yet but may be useful to some - and maybe I can get some help from more experienced users as well :-)

The template does the following graphs:

1. JVM heap usage
2. JVM non-heap usage
3. Thread count
4. GC stats **

** The only GC stats available via SNMP are i) number of GC runs and ii) total time (both of these are cumulative since JVM start). I find this useless - I need to find a way to get major vs minor GC runs and per run time.

On to the template requirements:

Check out this doc first: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/gui ... /SNMP.html

Here are the basic requirements to monitor your JVM remotely:

1. Use SNMP v. 2
2. Must use jdk 1.5.0_x or higher
3. Must use the xxxx.properties file (if you specify the SNMP options at startup (ie. in catalina.sh or related script) you can only monitor locally).

Those were the main point of clarification I ran into.

Good luck,

jk

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to create this template. I greatly appreciate it, however I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong...

I have the JVM listening on UDP 162 and when i tcpdump the port i can see requests coming in from cacti as I probe the host. But it doesnt look like any subsequent polling requests ever hit the port.

By default my regular net-snmpd daemon listens on UDP 161 like it should, I have a seperate profile for the same host to allow SNMP testing on UDP 162 just for the JVM. The port in this secondary profile is hard set to 162, is it possible that the cacti poller is ignoring this non-standard port?

Is there a step i'm missing on the Cacti side to allow regular scheduled polling to retreive data from the JVM

I've pasted the tcpdump of the complete UDP packet requests coming from Cacti to UDP 162 which confirms that the JVM does see the request from Cacti's initial grab, but nothing after during it's regular poller interval.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
-Alex

Figured it out... the problem was that I was only polling hosts via snmp and not with a ping. The hosts were probed as down even though Cacti was hitting the snmp port.

Enabling snmp+udp ping worked and the jvm instances came up and started graphing.

Thanks!

work with 0.8.7a

just edit the XML on lines with OID like "1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.145.3.163.1.1.2.101.1.3.2"

and add only "."

".1.3.6.1.4.1.42.2.145.3.163.1.1.2.101.1.3.2"

regards
Sam

Any script requied for this XML

#15 Post by elayaraja.s » Fri Mar 07, 2008 12:15 am

Is there any perl script is required to configure in Cacti for monitoring the 'JVM heap usage' or
by simply importing 'cacti_host_template_jvm_host.xml' file will able to create the graph. Could you pleae guide.
