What is ActiveMQ?
Apache ActiveMQ is an open source message broker written in Java together with a full Java Message Service (JMS) client.
Dynatrace monitors and analyzes the activity of your ActiveMQ instances, providing visibility down to individual database statements.
Instead of using separate tools for web monitoring, application performance management and server monitoring we now have a single all-in-one solution, Dynatrace.channelIQ
Know when your ActiveMQ nodes are underperforming
Under the ActiveMQ metrics you may want to pay particular attention to the Broker limits chart. This shows you memory usage, storage usage, and any temporary storage limits that have been assigned to the broker. For more ActiveMQ metrics please visit our dedicated blog post about ActiveMQ monitoring.
Enable ActiveMQ monitoring globally
By enabling ActiveMQ globally you let Dynatrace automatically collect ActiveMQ metrics whenever a new host running ActiveMQ message queuing is detected in your environment.
