|About Pivotal GemFire User's Guide / Tools and Modules|
GemFire Pulse is a Web Application that provides a graphical dashboard for monitoring vital, real-time health and performance of GemFire clusters, members, and regions.
Use Pulse to examine total memory, CPU, and disk space used by members, uptime statistics, client connections, WAN connections, and critical notifications. Pulse communicates with a GemFire JMX manager to provide a complete view of your GemFire deployment. You can drill down from a high-level cluster view to examine individual members and even regions within a member, to filter the type of information and level of detail.
By default, GemFire Pulse runs in a Tomcat server container that is embedded in a GemFire JMX manager node. You can optionally deploy Pulse to a Web application server of your choice, so that the tool runs independently of your GemFire clusters. Hosting Pulse on an application server also enables you to use SSL for accessing the application.
