As described in the last post jmx4perl can be operated in a so called agentless mode. For this to work, the target java server must be prepared for accepting remote JMX connections as described in JSR-160.
Unfortunately, this setup is not really standardized and specific to the Java JDK in use and the application server itself. In this post we concentrate on how to setup JMX remoting for JBoss.
In our series of articles about configuring remote JMX access for the jmx4perl proxy mode, this article tackles how to enable JMX remoting for Weblogic Server 9 and 10. It is not specific to jmx4perl and explains several different setups and possible problems.
Jmx4perl 0.51 has been released.
