Java Virtual Machine: Garbage Collection
Distribution official part of Check_MK
License GPL
Supported Agents Linux
This check monitors the count and assumed time of the garbage collection. It helps to recognize any deviation from the regular behaviour of the garbage collection. Such deviations could be more garbage collection runs per second or an increase in the time that is spent collecting garbage.

Since every system has a different behaviour there are no default values set to avoid false alarms.

To use this plugin, Jolokia and the agent plugin need to be installed on the monitored server (ore the special agent must be configured).

Item

The name of the application server instance and name of the garbage collection as sent by the agent seperated by the the statement {{GC}}.

Discovery

One service is created for each garbage collector sent by the Jolokia agent.
