I'm pleased to announce that we just shipped the Beta release of the open source Glassbox 2.0 automated troubleshooter. Glassbox 2.0 is a major step forward in simplifying troubleshooting enterprise Java, just deploy it to your app server and it discovers your existing applications and automatically diagnoses problems. Glassbox provides a concise analysis of what’s wrong, focusing on relevant information like excessive queries, or parameters that cause failures.
Glassbox now offers an AJAX Web Client, improved analysis and an automated installer that makes it easy to monitor Java applications in either a standalone or clustered environment. Under the hood, Glassbox continues to improve its monitoring and analysis to more easily pinpoint problems, Glassbox monitors selectively to allow very low overhead data capture, and we have been working with the AspectJ project to significantly reduce memory and startup time overhead. Glassbox is all open source with our CVS repository now hosted at SourceForge.
Please try it and let us know what you think.
We’d enjoy showing you in person, too. We’re presenting Glassbox this fall at:
