JON (JBoss Operations Network) is an enterprise management solution for JBoss servers and other middleware products. It is based on RHQ, which is the upstream open-source product that JON is built on. All the capabilities covered for JON are applicable to working with RHQ also.

The Systems Management with JBoss Operations Network training class provides an in-depth, hands-on introduction to JON, with a focus on using it to manage JBoss server installations/clusters (JBoss EAP 6, JBoss AS 7, and/or WildFly 8) as well as associated products such as Apache httpd/mod_cluster. The course starts with the basics, including the somewhat complex installation, and goes on to cover all the important capabilities of JON.

  1. Learn to understand the JON/RHQ architecture and capabilities.
  2. Learn to install and configure a JON installation.
  3. Learn to configure plugins, and set up agents.
  4. Learn to understand and work with inventory - import resources, browse and search, control their display.
  5. Learn to configure JBoss AS 7 / EAP 6 for management by JON/RHQ.
  6. Learn to use the monitoring capabilities.
