Using JConsole to connect to JMX on NetWeaver AS


I would like to use JConsole or VisualVM to connect to NetWeaver 7.3 and 7.0.

I have read a few things, among others:

Monitoring and Management Using JMX Technology - Java SEMonitoring and Management Guide

Configuring JVM Parameters - Administration - SAP Library

Hence I did the following:

Set these Java VM system properties:


This can be done in the Config Tool at the instance level (as opposed to template level) or in SAP NetWeaver Aministrator -> Configuration -> Infrastructure -> System Properties

  • I opened port 54444 via an inbound rule. We are on Windows Server 2008 R2. I wonder if this is enough for JMX to start using this port.

Finally, in JConsole or VisualVM I try to connect using this expression:

  • service:jmx:rmi:///jndi/rmi://jqp:54444/jmxrmi

Unfortunately, it fails to log in. The message in the message box is not helpful.

What am I doing wrong? What am I overlooking?


Made some progress.

The solution for NetWeaver 7.3 is here:

SAP AS Java Monitoring with JConsole

Still working on MBeans on NetWeaver 7.0.
