Goal

Coherence includes facilities for managing and monitoring Coherence resources by using the Java Management Extensions (JMX) API. JMX is a Java standard for managing and monitoring Java applications and services. It defines a management architecture, design patterns, APIs, and services for building general solutions to manage Java-enabled resources. The following example shows how to monitor a distributed Coherence cache using JConsole (JMX Client) with Java JDK 6.0. In this article we will be using Coherence 3.4.2 with JDK 1.6 and using the default config file found in coherence.jar which defines a "distributed scheme" cache type. 

Note that the technique described in this article is equally applicable to all versions of Coherence from 3.4.x onwards.
