19.1. Introduction to Metro JMX Monitoring
JMX monitoring and management is built into Metro-based services and clients. Monitoring allows one to view the state of parts of Metro runtime system while it is in operation. Management allows one to change values dynamically. The rest of this document will refer to Metro monitoring and management as simply "monitoring".
Metro monitoring should not be confused with Metro's Web Service Configuration Management (WSCM). Monitoring enables one to view the state of the Metro runtime, whereas WSCM is for (re)configuring a web service.
