Title: METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR MONITORING MESSAGE ORIENTED MIDDLEWARE SYSTEMS
Abstract:
Various embodiments of the present invention provide systems and methods for monitoring a computing environment that includes a central node, site nodes, client nodes, and a message oriented middleware system adapted to execute an agent application to control the exchange of messages between the central node, site nodes, and client nodes. In particular, the systems and methods for monitoring the computer environment involve executing a monitoring module that generates and sends requests to poll the site nodes, client nodes, and mailboxes associated with the middleware system. As a result, the nodes send responses back to the monitoring module indicating a state for each node and each mailbox, and the monitoring module detects whether one or more alert conditions are met based on the responses. Furthermore, the monitoring module of various embodiments also generates one or more alert messages in response to detecting that an alert condition is met.
