I'll try to get something up and running in my test lab today. I'll let you know how it works.
My setup requires an RMI connection, so I'm not sure if the code is far enough along to support my test environment, but I'll give it a shot anyway.
I'll send an update later when I've got some results to report.

Subject: Re: [collectd] JVM statistics collection?
at the end ... I have a operational jmx plugin to collect jvm statistics. Please, someone can check it ??
I use snmp plugin to cut and paste, thanks Florian .. ;-)
How it work.
I added a -with-java to configure script, to add jmx support
configure jvm options (classpath and options), create data list, create instance list
setup JNI link to Java VM.
Foreach instance, create a connector of class defined in instance options and pass instance parameters to the object.
Foreach data in instance (collect parameter), add this data to this instance with data parameters.
Create threads to read data
Read (in thread):
Foreach data in instance, call java method collect(dataname) on
instance->connector object. This return a java.lang.String array
Foreach string, parse it and dispatch value of the data->type
- Make new data class to get stats (tomcat related, garbage collector, etc...)
- Check memory-leaks
- Add support for JMXCollectdRMIConnector for use user/password
- Add support for JMXCollectdRMIConnector for local process
- Add control error
- Revise configure to check java VM and get includes and libs
comments please !
