Check out this 8-step guide to see how you can increase your productivity by skipping slow application redeploys and by implementing application profiling, as you code! Brought to you in partnership with ZeroTurnaround.

If you want to connect JConsole/VisualVM to a remote Tomcat or set up Opsview check_jmx with Tomcat, then you’ll need to enable remote JMX support.

This can be achieved with the following JVM settings in /etc/default/tomcat6 on Debian (line breaks added for clarity):

# Add JMX support
JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS
-Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.port=1616
-Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.ssl=false
-Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.authenticate=false"

This configuration would typically be locked down with iptables.

For the complete list of settings (e.g. SSL / password controlled access) see the remote section of the JMX guide.
