Quick tip: Enabling remote access to Tomcat JMX

· Java Zone ·
Free Resource

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

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.
