Performance and scalability: Application Response Measurement - ARM vs JMX

  1. Application Response Measurement - ARM vs JMX (1 messages)

    Hi,

    there is an API called ARM for Application Response Measurement.

    Its webpage (http://www.opengroup.org/management/arm.htm) states "The Application Response Measurement (ARM) standard describes a common method for integrating enterprise applications as manageable entities."

    Looks to me like nowadays this should be done by JMX.

    Does anybody know if this is true or is ARM something different? If not, does this ARM API offer advantages over JMX?

    Thank you,
    Juergen
  2. As far as I was aware, ARM was the open source standard that the community was meant to be adopting but didn't. If I recall, BMC (who develop application monitoring software) developed against ARM v1.0. We're now on ARM v3.0.

    I thought that the strategic direction for BMC and the like was a move over to JMX. I'd stick with the latter since I think it will become the standard.
