Monitoring and alerting are a critical part of any production installation. Whether you use Management Center, or JMX/3rd party solutions, what is important is that monitoring and alerting are setup and used.
Management Center allows you to define alerts based on:
- free memory
- heap usage
- active thread count
- daemon threads count
- usage statistics specific to a data structure (e.g. Map, Cache, Queue, etc)
Once configured, Management Center will send email alerts based on those events.
