Configuring the JMX Server

The embedded JMX server can be used to monitor the running RoboServer through tools like JConsole. It is enabled by providing an argument on the RoboServer command line (see the RoboServer User’s Guide for further information.)

Hiding Sensitive Robot Input

The Show Inputs option controls whether robot input parameters are shown in the management interface. This makes it possible to hide security sensitive information like passwords.

JMX Server Access

By default the JMX server can be accessed by all clients with access to the correct port on the server. By selecting the Use Password option the chosen user name and password must be provided when connecting.

Heartbeat Notifications

If an interval (in seconds) greater than 0 is specified the JMX server sends out a heartbeat notification with the given interval as long as the RoboServer is running and responding to queries.
