Now Available: Java EE Management Pack Update

I am proud to announce an update for System Center 2012 R2 Management packs for Java EE http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=44576. Java application monitoring was first released in System Center 2012 and this marks the third iteration for Java EE server management with Operations Manager. Past updates have included support for IBM WebSphere 8 and Oracle WebLogic 12cR1. With the fall 2014 update, we have extended management capability to three new Java application server versions and extended existing support to WebSphere Network Deployment.

In order to use these management packs with UNIX/Linux ensure that Update Rollup 4 for UNIX/Linux Management Packs is installed. Update Rollup 4 is available here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29696

The Java Application Server Management Packs now contain these new management packs

  • Microsoft.JEE.Tomcat.8.mp
  • Microsoft.JEE.JBoss.7.mp
  • Microsoft.JEE.Wildfly.8.mp

These management packs enable monitoring of Tomcat 8, JBoss 7, and Wildfly 8. Additionally with JBoss 7 and Wildfly 8, monitoring of Standalone and Domain mode are both supported.

Additionally the following management packs have been updated

  • Microsoft.JEE.WebSphere.8.mp
  • Microsoft.JEE.Tomcat.5.mp
  • Microsoft.JEE.Tomcat.6.mp
  • Microsoft.JEE.Tomcat.7.mp

– WebSphere Network Deployment automatic discovery is now supported for Windows, AIX, and Linux
