JMX with Java Tiger (J2SE 5.0)

Java 1.5 now supports the Java Management Extensions (JMX) framework. This allows remote monitoring and management of the JVM. Details such as memory useage and availability are available remotely via JMX, and via SNMP. SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) operates over UDP port 161 and is accessed using a Managed Information Base (MIB) browser. More information on SNMP can be found in Network programming in .NET.

Below is an example of monitoring of memory usage via JMX.

import java.util.*;
public class MemTest
 public static void main(String args[])
  List<MemoryPoolMXBean> pools = ManagementFactory.getMemoryPoolMXBeans();
  for (MemoryPoolMXBean p: pools) 
	System.out.println("Memory type="+p.getType()+" Memory usage="+p.getUsage());
