Using VMStat inside GlassFish...
By pelegri on Apr 28, 2007
The old Unix command vmstat(1M) is a workhorse for finding out what your system is doing. Now Jane shows how GlassFish has a similar mechanism; check this image for instance - or go to her blog for more examples.
Administration and monitoring is a typical place where administrators write all sorts of useful scripts. Sun's Web Server has a TCL interpreter embedded; GlassFish has a nice CLI but it is proprietary. Abhijit was brainstorming that perhaps we could use JSR-223 to plug different interpreters. Another separate idea would be to help people share useful scripts. What do you think?
