Metric renaming in the JMX tree

Question asked by JayFielding on Nov 2, 2009
Latest reply on Nov 3, 2009 by JayFielding
One of the applications that we're monitoring with Wily java agents has thousands of important performance metrics exposed in the JMX metric tree.   Currently the application support teams maintain a list of conversions of the programmatic name to the readable name.   For example, an application metric is displayed as "aggcronNewMail" which the users want this metric to read as "Total new email messages."

The volume of important JMX metrics is in the thousands, so I'm looking for a solution that will scale and be easy to maintain.   Any recommendations from people who have addressed issues like this before?

Thanks,
Jay Fielding
