Monitor JVM status

Hi,
Can anyone please let me know if there is a way to monitor the status of JVM? Currently the metrics available is only for monitoring JVMs' up or down.. We want to get noticed when JVM's hung.. Based on CA support reply, there is no direct metric to tell you about the "JVM hang situation". But you can use the out of box blamepoint metrics like "Stall count", "Error per Interval" to get to know if the application was running into issue prior to hang, you can set up alerts on it.. Stall count generally grows high as the application stops responding.
But for my view, if we keep tab on stalls, which may eventually clear, it is not to tell JVM hung right away. GC heap is also the same, GC heap usage may come down based on application functionality and application releasing heap and closing threads...

Please let me know your suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Zhang
