The Managers have a set of internal metrics named 'GC Heap' - can we also get an overview tab for these?
If CA changed the string 'GC Heap' to 'GC Monitor' wouldn't that make the "Overview" tab appear and show the same as if it were an agent?
Would this be in addition to the GC Monitor typeviewer or replacing it and its location for viewing?
I understand the usecase. We have no plans of adding this due to other commitments.
Fred.K There are only basic GC metrics for EMs compared to app servers. So just renaming the node and adding a type viewer won't help much. You can see all the current GC metrics in the EM Overview typeview. So unless you get all the GC Monitor metrics about the EM there's not much benefit here. If you want a typeview for the current GC Heap node see How to create XML Typeviews or contact me.
I looked at the metrics again yesterday on my v10 and there are a lot under Enterprise Manager|Internal|GC Heap. While quite a few, there are many missing (%, Invocation, rate, ..)compare to the agent (actually I think there were more in the EM v9.5)....
In any case my 'quick win' is not as simple indeed. While it would be nice to hoover over the GC Heap and see the light and info alike the agent we should probably prefer the mom_monitor module/dashboard with that info.
