[jboss-user] [Beginners Corner] - Monitor user sessions in JBoss

Hi there,

I provide application hosting for a particular J2EE application (Saba), and as part of my service I want to provide my customers with a monthly report that gives them visibility into how the users use the application.

I have been evaluating a number of monitoring systems (Hyperic, Nagios, Zenoss, and AdventNet Applications Manager) and so far I have not been able to find one which will poll JBoss to find out how many active user sessions there are.  Most of them seem to have no problem monitoring things like:

      Application up time
      Application down time (apart from scheduled outages)
      CPU and memory usage, JVM memory usage, etc

This is all useful info for my report, but I REALLY NEED to know about user sessions: average, peak, etc.

The technology stack is:

Windows Server 2003
JBoss 4.0.5
Apache 2.0.58
SQL Server 2005 

Can anyone suggest how I can do this?  Please note - I know very little about the "guts" of JBoss.  I have seen a number of posts in various forums refer to "jmx-console" but I don't know what this is or how to use it.
