ActiveMQ server monitoring

ActiveMQ performance monitoring and capacity management

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.

See your ActiveMQ performance metrics in real-time

Dynatrace detects your ActiveMQ instances and shows metrics like CPU, Retransmissions and Garbage Collection time.

  • Manual configuration of your monitoring setup is no longer necessary.
  • Auto-detection starts monitoring new hosts running ActiveMQ.

Gather valuable ActiveMQ node metrics

Dynatrace shows you a list of your ActiveMQ process groups. From here you can easily access node-specific metrics: drill down into the metrics of individual nodes to find the root cause of any potential bottlenecks or detected performance problems.

Instead of using separate tools for web monitoring, application performance management and server monitoring we now have a single all-in-one solution, Dynatrace.

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.

Easily track ActiveMQ queues

ActiveMQ Queue metrics tell you about traffic and informs about message processing-time degradation. Keep an eye on the Average enqueue time increase metric for insights about real-time usage.

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.
