Jira 7.6 live monitoring with JMX Edited

Juan I'm New Here Nov 22, 2017

Hi all.
I have Jira running on version 7.4.3. I'd like to use JMX monitoring Mbeans to collect some metrics.
I've read it could be possible adding some extra args on setenv.sh script. Nevertheless I've received a mail about new features on Jira 7.6 version with Live monitoring using the JMX interface available
Jira 7.6 release notes
What's the difference with previous versions? I assume it was available before with that extra args.... Maybe it's related you can activate JMX live monitoring from admin web console without restarting the app?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Juan,

For JMX remote you will need to open the port in tomcat (setenv). However you can do local monitoring if you have the full jdk installed on the server, without opening jmx port. 

In 7.4.3 you can do JVM/tomcat monitoring. In the new version there are also the mbeans specific to jira, and it's enabled from the settings to gather metrics:


The instructions at the bottom of that page show how to enable JMX access. Hope this helps.
