Administer programmatically with Managed Beans (MBeans)

Use several different types of Java™ Management Extensions (JMX) MBeans to administer and monitor deployments. Each MBean refers to a specific entity, such as a map, data grid, server, or service.


JMX MBean interfaces and WebSphere eXtreme Scale

Each MBean has get methods that represent attribute values. These get methods cannot be called directly from the program. The JMX specification treats attributes differently from operations. You can view attributes with a vendor JMX console, and you can perform operations in the program or with a vendor JMX console.


Package com.ibm.websphere.objectgrid.management
