How to configure Java Melody in JIRA 5 or 6 so it does monitor database access?

I am trying to configure Java Melody so it will monitor JDBC connections in JIRA but so far I wasn't able to find the right configuration to make it work with my postgresql connection.

I tried to follow the guide from it still doesn't work. Even worse I do had to add an additonal DB connection inside server.xml for the igrid plugin, but that's in a different section, not inside context.

Can someone copy/paste a configuration that works with Melody? server.xml and dbcofig.xml (obviously you may want to remove the passwords or hostnames). Thank you.

In Server.xml


<Engine name="Catalina" defaultHost="localhost">

<Host name="localhost" appBase="webapps" unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true">

<Context path="" docBase="${catalina.home}/atlassian-jira" reloadable="false" useHttpOnly="true">

<Resource name="UserTransaction" auth="Container" type="javax.transaction.UserTransaction"

factory="org.objectweb.jotm.UserTransactionFactory" jotm.timeout="60"/>

<Manager pathname=""/>

<Resource name="jdbc/JiraDS" auth="Container" type="javax.sql.DataSource"







validationQuery="select version()"/>




In dbconfig.xml


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>








and it worked fine for me.
