Basic usage description.

1) Build and enable.

a) Get moskito-javaagent-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar artifact from {javaagent-home}/target - directory and put it to some location

b) Get {javaagent-home}/target/configuration directory to same location ( provides all required configurations and will be used as bootPath for agent)

2) Add moskito javaagent to your app, as java-agent, and provide applications packages to be monitored.

as example:

	export JAVA_OPTS=" $JAVA_OPTS -javaagent:/[full_path]/moskito-javaagent/target/moskito-javaagent-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar"
	export JAVA_OPTS=" $JAVA_OPTS export JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -DapplicationPackages=com.test,com.anothertest"

By default following classes are monitored: *DAO*, *Repository*, *Service*, *Manager*, *Controller*.

3) Now you can run your application, jump to step 6 and check what is going on.

4) Configuring moskito-javaagent-config.json.

This configuration allows to pre-select working mode (PROFILING / LOG_ONLY) — in log only mode all class/methods will be simply dumped into info - log in PROFILING mode - core moskito functionality will take a part.

a) Add monitoring sections @monitoringClassConfig ( Patterns defines classes which will be weaver ( wrapped into monitoring aspect ))!

           "patterns": ["com.test.*"],
           "subsystem": "default",
           "category": "foo-bar"

b) Extend default monitoring classes @monitoringDefaultClassConfig ( Patterns defines classes which will be weaver by default ( wrapped into monitoring aspect ))!

           "patterns": [".*Service.*"],
           "subsystem": "default",
           "category": "service"

c) In case you want to connect from MoSKito Inspect - select port - 9451 - default and enable it using config properties:

           "startMoskitoBackend": true,
           "moskitoBackendPort": 9451

or system property:

	export JAVA_OPTS=" $JAVA_OPTS -DmoskitoAgentPort=9451"

5) Logging configuration changes.

[moskito-aspect-config.json] allow to provide other logger names. By default loggers will be - MoskitoDefault ( see logback.xml), Moskito1m, Moskito1h - etc….

NOTE : "attachDefaultStatLoggers": true - enables logback logging for defaults stats "defaultMoskitoLoggerName": "", - defines default logger name ( “MoskitoDefault” - by global default ) "@loggers": [], - allow to create intervalName - logger name mapping like :

           "@intervalLogger": {
             "defaultMoskitoLoggerName": "",
             "@loggers": [
                    "intervalName" : "1s",
                    "loggerName" : "MoskitoOneSecondIntervalLogger"
             "attachDefaultStatLoggers": true

In app data - defaults for logging specified in logback.xml. In case If you want to rename some moskito loggers.

6) Connection from inspect moskito application with UI.

  • Run MoSKito inspect application.
  • Navigate to producer section.
  • Provide host (localhost for local connections), port (default 9451 or those which was configured in section 4.c ("moskitoBackendPort").
  • Connect - and find your producers.
