Monitoring Performance with the JMX Console

The JMX console is browser-based tool that provides a performance monitoring tool that records performance statistics for each stage in a dataflow.

  1. Open a web browser and go to http://server:port/jmx-console


    server is the IP address or hostname of your Spectrum™ Technology Platform server.

    port is the HTTP port used by Spectrum™ Technology Platform. The default is 8080.

  2. Log in using the admin account.
  3. Under " Domain: com.pb.spectrum.platform.performance", click com.pb.spectrum.platform.performance:service=PerformanceMonitorManager.
  4. Click the Invoke button next to enable.
  5. Click Return to MBean View to go back to the PerformanceMonitorManager screen.

Performance monitoring is now enabled. When a dataflow runs, the performance statistics will display at the top of the PerformanceMonitorManager screen. Note the following:

  • You must refresh the screen to see updates.
  • To reset the counters, click the Invoke button next to reset.
  • If you stop the Spectrum™ Technology Platform server, performance monitoring will be turned off. You will have to turn it back on when you start the server again.
