Since Payara Server 18.104.22.168
Payara Server includes a HealthCheck Service that is disabled by default. When enabled it can periodically check the following performance metrics:
Host CPU Usage
Host Memory Usage
Payara Server’s JVM Garbage Collections
Payara Server’s JVM Heap Usage
CPU Usage of individual threads
Detects stuck threads
If there is a problem with any of these metrics and they exceed a
configurable threshold then a
notification is sent to the Notification Service. Notifications can be then sent
to one or more notifiers, e.g. a log file.
This allows operations teams to rapidly detect problems or work out what happened after these problems have occurred.
|The Host Memory Usage currently only works on Linux and BSD derivatives.|
If the Log Notifier is enabled, such events will be presented in the server’s log file like in the following sample:
