JMX::Jmx4Perl::Alias - JMX alias names for jmx4perl
Aliases are shortcuts for certain MBean attributes and operations. Additionally, aliasing provides a thin abstraction layer which allows to map common functionality with different naming schemes across different application servers. E.g you can access the heap memory usage of your application by using the alias
MEMORY_HEAP_USED regardless how the specific MBean and its attributes are named on the target application server. Specific JMX::Jmx4Perl::Product take care about this mapping.
Alias are normally named hierachically, from the most general to the most specific, where the parts are separate by underscore (
OS_MEMORY_TOTAL_PHYSICAL specifies the total physical memory installed on the machine.
use this module, be aware that all aliases are imported in your name space a subroutines (so that you an use them without a
Most of the methods in
JMX::Jmx4Perl which allows for aliases can take an alias in two forms. Either as a constant import by using this module or as string. The string can be either the name of the alias itself or, as an alternative format, a lower cased variant where underscores are replaced by colons. E.g
"memory:heap:used" are both valid alias names.
Each alias is an object of the package JMX::Jmx4Perl::Alias::Object which provides some additional informations about the alias.
To print out all available aliases, sorted by name and with a short description, you can use the
help subroutine, e.g. like in
perl -MJMX::Jmx4Perl::Alias -e 'JMX::Jmx4Perl::Alias::help'
- $alias = JMX::Jmx4Perl::Alias->by_name("MEMORY_HEAP_USAGE")
Get an alias object by a name lookup. The argument provided must be a string containing the name of an alias. If such an alias is not registered, this method returns
Get all aliases defined, sorted by alias name.
Print out all registered aliases along with a short description
