This script is a simplified version of check_jmx4perl which does not check for thresshold and prints out the measured data in a simplified format, which can be used by Cacti (www.cacti.net). For single checks, it simply returns the number measured, for multi checks, the numbers are returned with labels and space separated. See "Multichecks" in check_jmx4perl for more about multichecks.


  $ cacti_jmx4perl --url http://localhost:8080/jolokia --alias MEMORY_HEAP_USED

  $ cacti_jmx4perl -u http://localhost:8080/jolokia --config config/memory.cfg --check memory
  Heap:15341168 Non-Heap:19450312

For the possible options and the configuration syntax, please refer to the documentation of check_jmx4perl. Certain options are not available for this Cacti Script, since they make no sense here:
