Discover how to optimize your DevOps workflows with our cloud-based automated testing infrastructure, brought to you in partnership with Sauce Labs

Ever wanted an easy tool for persisting your App Server's monitoring data with no external dependencies.  Well if you use GlassFish you're in luck, because Adam Bien has created a cool tool for that app server called LightFish that will store your monitoring data up in a RDBMS.  It then pushes that data to a JavaFX 2 UI in real-time to visualize this data.

Here's a video intro and the features Adam lists:


Features / Monitoring:
    Threads And Memory:

    Heap Size, Thread Count, Peak Thread Count

    Transactions:

    Commits and Rollbacks

    "Paranormal Activity" :-)

    Queued Connections, Errors and Busy Thread Count

    HTTP Sessions

    Active and Expired Sessions

    JDBC Pools

    Free and used connections, potential connection leaks, and the Length of the wait queue
