This document looks at System Management Integration tools and their use within Talend ESB.
The smooth running of the computer infrastructure is a critical part of any business. This requires constant system monitoring of network resources, to be aware of what is happening and of any problems that may arise, for example, in services being unavailable, or generating faults.
In the event of emergencies, the system can be configured to notify key personnel about the problem and can help resolve it.
These System Monitoring Tools gather information either by remote calls or via local agents from the distributed system into a central monitoring repository and provide the Administrator an up-to-date view on the system health.
Talend ESB supports explicitly:
Open Source Hyperic HQ and its commercial version vFabric Hyperic are cross platform monitoring systems designed to monitor and control server resources. Hyperic HQ Integration will describe Hyperic HQ integration support.
Nagios is another Open Source monitoring application. Nagios Integration will describe Nagios integration support.
Generic JMX Monitoring: Talend ESB exposes a great set of information via JMX, and by this, monitoring solutions, who provide generic monitoring capabilities for JMX, can be used with Talend ESB. JMX configuration is described in Generic JMX Integration will describe the use of JMX, using the JConsole as an example of generic monitoring application.
