Launching and Accessing Server Monitor
This topic introduces how you can launch Server Monitor and access it from a web browser.
This topic contains the following sections:
After you have installed Server Monitor, it generates a batch file MonitorServer.bat automatically in
<install_root>\bin. You can start Server Monitor by running this batch file.
To successfully start Server Monitor, you should meet these requirements:
- Copy rmi.auth from
<adminserver_install_root>\binof the admin Server (the Server you want to monitor) to
<monitor_install_root>\bin, or remove rmi.auth from
<adminserver_install_root>\bin, or add
-Djrs.rmi.auth_file=%authFileName%to MonitorServer.bat to specify the authentication file.
- Make sure that the server.rmimonitor.enable property in the server.properties file in the
<adminserver_install_root>\bindirectory is set to true. The default value is true.
- If you installed the admin Server and Server Monitor on different computers, you need to specify the right host and port of the admin Server in Server Monitor side via the two properties in the server.properties file in the
<monitor_install_root>\bindirectory before starting Server Monitor:
admin.server.host=The RMI host name or IP address of the admin Server.
admin.server.port=The RMI port number of the admin Server.
The default values of these two properties are for the admin Server that you installed in the same computer.
Server Monitor generates the server.properties file when you run MonitorServer.bat for the first time after installation.
- Start the admin Server.
After you start the Server Monitor, you can access Server Monitor via browsers in one of these ways:

From Server UI
You can also access Server Monitor by selecting Monitor from the Server Console > Administration > Other drop-down menu. To do this, you need to make sure that:
