Hawkular APM is the Application Performance Management solution offering:

  • Distributed Tracing (e.g. for microservices)
  • Application Performance Management
  • Business Transaction Management (currently only using JVM javaagent based approach)

Applications can be instrumented using the OpenTracing standard API, optionally with the help of framework integrations and a non-intrusive Java Agent, that can be found in the OpenTracing contrib organization. It is also possible to use Hawkular APM as an alternative backend for Zipkin client libraries.

Hawkular APM provides the capabilities to monitor the flow of invocations across servers, tiers, on-premises and in the cloud. It also enables detailed performance analysis to be performed of the individual components that make up an application.

Project documentation can be found here.

Build & Run

To build and run execute:

$ mvn clean install -Pdev -DskipTests [-Pitest]
$ dist/target/hawkular-apm-${version}/bin/standalone.sh [-Djboss.http.port=9411]

-> go to http://localhost:[8080|9411]/ and log in with admin:password

The parameters to these commands are:

  • -Djboss.http.port=9411 - bind APM port to Zipkin 9411 port. Default APM port is 8080.
  • -Pdev - create user admin:password
  • -Pitest - run integration tests

Add non-intrusive Java instrumentation to instrument your applications (doc):

$ source dist/target/hawkular-apm-${version}/apm/setenv.sh <APM server port>

-> restart your Java applications

REST API documentation can be generated using -Pdocgen profile. The doc is generated under rest/target folder.

$ mvn clean install -Pdocgen
