How to graph individual values (ex. concurrent connections to the server)

Any integer read-only value in the MBeans section of JConsole can be graphed by double-clicking its value. The graph updates every five seconds and is maintained even if you view a different panel of attributes. To stop graphing a value, click Discard chart.

To graph the current number connections to the Wowza Media Server, follow these steps:

  1. Connect to the Wowza media server using JConsole.
     
  2. Click the MBeans tab.
     
  3. Navigate to: WowzaMediaServerPro/Connections/Attributes
     
  4. Double-click the current value.
Note: If you're running Wowza Streaming Engine™ software, the server items are exposed in the WowzaStreamingEngine section under the MBeans tab. You should use the following procedure:
  1. Connect to Wowza Steaming Engine using JConsole.
  2. Click the MBeans tab.
  3. Navigate to: WowzaStreamingEngine/Connections/Attributes
  4. Double click the current value.
Again, this can be done for any read-only value.
