After the server installation or in the SVN repository you can find 2 files in the etc/ directory: jmx.access and jmx.password.

  • jmx.access is a user permission file. You can use it to specify whether the user can access the monitoring data for reading only 'readonly' or with read-write 'readwrite' access. There are example entries in the file already and the content may simply look like:

    monitor readonly
    admin readwrite
  • jmx.password is a user password file. You can set user passwords here and the format again is very simple and the same as for jmx.access. There are example entries already provided for you convenience. Content of the file may look like the example below:

    admin admin_pass
    monitor monitor_pass

Using above to files you can control who and how can access the JMX monitoring services.
