Using JConsole as generic JMX Application

The JConsole which is part of the Oracle JDK, under the /bin folder of the JDK installation, is a generic monitoring client which allows to see JMX attributes and use JMX operations in a generic way.

Here, we use the JConsole only as one example of a monitoring application which supports JMX. The information shown in the JConsole can also be used and accessed by other Monitoring solutions as long as they provide a way to use JMX.

For the JConsole, complete the following steps to see the JMX information from Talend ESB:


  1. Type in jconsole from a command line window. (or start the jconsole.exe directly from {JAVA_HOME}/bin/jconsole.exe in Windows, for example.
  2. Set remote JMX URL by selecting Remote Process and click Connect. This opens the Java Monitoring & Management Console.
    The default URL for Talend ESB is:
    Remote Process service:jmx:rmi://localhost:44444/jndi/rmi://localhost:1099/karaf-trun
    Username tadmin
    Password tadmin
  3. Once connected to the service, click the tab called MBeans.
  4. Explore the Talend ESB related MBeans:
    • org.apache.camel - contains all information about Routes which run on the Container. If no Routes are deployed, this node will not show in the list.
    • org.apache.cxf - shows all information about (SOAP/REST) Services running on the Container which uses Apache CXF as Web framework (for example, as the ESB Data Services do). Please be aware that this node only shows in case a service has received at least one request.
    • org.apache.activemq - shows all metric and management operations for the message broker (Apache ActiveMQ).
    • org.apache.karaf - shows the metric and management operations for the Talend Runtime Container (based on Apache Karaf).
    • TalendAgent (commercial editions only) - shows the Operating System and Data Integration JobServer information.


There are additional MBeans which can be seen and used even so the above five are the most important ones for ESB.
