Alfresco health checker guardian
This project started during the Alfresco Global Hackathon of the 23rd of September, 2016.
We want to build a daemon that is constantly monitoring certain values than can help us to identify potential risks (unhealthy status). When values reach predefined thresholds, the daemon takes action. Things we want to monitor are the following:
Database connection pool size (and status of connections)
Tomcat thread pool size
Status of libreoffice converter (is it running? listening?)
Amount of connected users
Practical info: I’m writing the daemon in Python and it will run on Linux. I can retrieve some data from Alfresco through the jmx-rmi connector, but this works only for Enterprise Edition. I need help to retrieve that information in Community Edition, hopefully in the form of webscripts.
