The JBoss Unified Dashboard provides predefined list views for monitoring the JBoss application server. You can configure the probe to measure more specific metrics based on these general metrics:
  • count
  • thread count
  • memory usage
For example, the count metric can be configured to count any instance of JBoss function, such as total requests.

If your Unified Dashboard is not populating with data, make sure all required data sources for the Unified Dashboard are enabled. The required probe must be deployed and must be configured so that required QoS metrics and subkeys or targets are activated. For more information, see the help topic on required data sources for the Unified Dashboard.

JBoss Thread Counters
You can use the JBoss Thread Counters list view to optimize resource allocation based on server load. For example, if the number of active thread is 80% of the total maximum allowed, then you tune your system to enable better response times.
The Thread Counters can be configured in the probe to monitor individual or group threads.
