This topic provides instructions to ensure that the GemFire plugin can discover and monitor GemFire components.

Procedure

  1. (Optional) : If you plan to run the vRealize Hyperic agent on the same platform as the JMX Agent for the DS, skip to Step 2. If you plan to run the vRealize Hyperic agent on a different platform than the JMX agent's RMI service - do this by specifying the JMX agent's rmi-bind-address when you start it:
    ./agent start rmi-bind-address=IP_Address -dir/AgentHome
  2. Enable statistics sampling for each GemFire member in the DS - by default, statistics sampling is not enabled. To enable it, edit each member's gemfire.properties file to set the statistic-sampling-enabled property to true.
