Monitoring Jetty Web Server

Collect and monitor general performance metrics of Jetty application server

Usage protocol: JMX

Pre-monitoring Operations

You need to enable the JMX service in the JVM application. HertzBeat uses the JMX protocol to collect metrics for the JVM.

Jetty application server opens JMX protocol steps

Refer to official documentation

  1. Start the JMX JMX-REMOTE module in Jetty
java -jar $JETTY_HOME/start.jar --add-module=jmx
java -jar $JETTY_HOME/start.jar --add-module=jmx-remote

Successful command execution will create ${JETTY_BASE}/start.d/jmx-remote.ini configuration file

  1. Edit the ${JETTY_BASE}/start.d/jmx-remote.ini configuration file to modify the JMX IP port and other parameters.

localhost needs to be modified to expose the IP

## The host/address to bind the RMI server to.
# jetty.jmxremote.rmiserverhost=localhost

## The port the RMI server listens to (0 means a random port is chosen).
# jetty.jmxremote.rmiserverport=1099

## The host/address to bind the RMI registry to.
# jetty.jmxremote.rmiregistryhost=localhost

## The port the RMI registry listens to.
# jetty.jmxremote.rmiregistryport=1099

## The host name exported in the RMI stub.
-Djava.rmi.server.hostname=localhost
  1. Restart Jetty Server.
