Dynatrace blog

With the Dynatrace JMX monitoring plugin editor (now available via an early access program) you can integrate JMX metrics with Dynatrace in a matter of minutes, all without adding a single line of code. Use the new JMX editor to add or customize your custom JMX monitoring plugins.

To begin, select an MBeans attribute. Choose a domain, then select MBeans and the attribute. Splitting is also available.
