TIBCO Operational Intelligence Hawk® (Formerly TIBCO Hawk®) and TIBCO Operational Intelligence Hawk® RedTail provide the industry's best, sophisticated tool for monitoring and managing distributed applications and systems throughout the enterprise. With Hawk, system administrators can monitor application parameters, behavior, and loading activities for all nodes in a local or wide-area network and take action when pre-defined conditions occur. In many cases, runtime failures or slowdowns can be repaired automatically within seconds of their discovery, reducing unscheduled outages and slowdowns of critical business systems.

  • Collect metrics and store in time-series database
  • Customize your dashboards and configure multiple queries

  • Create high-level rulebases with tags and deploy rulebases on all agents in the domain
  • Content packs that provide a product-specific or environment-specific view

TIBCO Hawk Plug-in for JMX - Community Edition extends the managing and monitoring capabilities of TIBCO Hawk Container Edition into applications instrumented using Java™ Management Extensions (JMX) standard interfaces. Via the TIBCO Hawk Plug-in for JMX - Community Edition, the TIBCO Hawk Container Edition agent can connect to JMX Agents, introspect them, and expose the JMX MBeans to the TIBCO Hawk infrastructure as microagents. From there, they can be utilized with TIBCO Hawk rule-bases or accessed by any number of TIBCO Hawk console applications.

It works with the TIBCO Hawk Container Edition 1.0.0 and can be used to monitor containerized custom JAVA applications for eg. Kafka.
