The OpenTelemetry Collector provides an integration with JMX and ActiveMQ to ingest metrics. The Collector fetches ActiveMQ metrics from JMX. From there the metrics are processed and exported to Cloud Observability.
To complete the integration, you will:
The ActiveMQ JMX receiver periodically fetches metrics using a built-in OpenTelemetry helper utilizing a Groovy script. The script is configured to poll both the JMX Agent and the OpenTelemetry JMX Metric Gatherer operation.
For more details regarding configuring the ActiveMQ remote connection, see the official ActiveMQ documentation.
In the Collector configuration file, add JVM and ActiveMQ as a receiver and set the following:
jar_path: The path to the
endpoint: The hostname/IP address and port or unix socket file path of the ActiveMQ instance
target_system: The metrics to collect. Valid values for this integration are
1 2 3 4 5 receivers: jmx: jar_path: /opt/opentelemetry-jmx-metrics.jar endpoint: "localhost:9999" target_system: jvm,activemq
The OpenTelemetry repo provides additional details about JMX configuration.
Once the ActiveMQ receiver is configured, enable it by adding it to one or more pipelines as described in the Collector configuration documentation.
You can validate that metrics are reporting to Cloud Observability on the Metrics details page in Project settings.
In Cloud Observability, click Project settings > Metric details.
Search for ActiveMQ metric names.
If needed, click on the metric to edit the description and how the units are displayed in Cloud Observability.
