check_jmx

There are different check_jmx versions (ME, NE1, NE2 and CG) on NagiosExchange, MonitorExchange and Google Code but it seems none of them is still maintained. I tried to reach one author but got no reply. So I decided to put my modifications on the net. I also merged some other changes in this new release of check_jmx.

To be sure other people can continue development, should I'm not be reachable, I uploaded the source to gitorious. There is a new repository for Nagios plugins which is maintained by some community members.

check_jmx is a Nagios plugin to monitor your JVM, e.g. your Tomcat or JBoss Installation. It is possible to get data about your heap, gc, .... It is also possible to query MBeans which are part of your application. check_jmx also returns performance data.

For this release I merge the original check_jmx release with additions to support Longs instead of integers for the warning and critical value. I added authentication for connections to the JMX server.

It took some time, but finaly I added a shell wrapper script to the gitorious repository.

Thanks for the work, we have been able to get Performance Data logging using PNP into our Nagios now.

Compare https://code.google.com/p/jmxquery/source/list (last commit July 2012) to http://gitorious.org/nagios-community/plugins/commits/master (last commit January 2011). Pick your poison :)
