The MQ broker provides a rich set of monitoring statistics that are currently not accessible through GF. A majority of these stats are implemented as JMX MBeans while a smaller number of them are only accessible through the MQ command line. In this release, we plan to provide access to these MQ monitoring statistics through the GF monitoring framework. The GF JMS module will implement the StatsProvider interface and will act as a proxy for these JMX MBeans. The primary focus will be on providing accessibility to the JMX enabled stats. Access to the non-JMX metrics will require code changes from MQ by either making these available through JMX or providing an alternative interface.
