Monitoring the JVM with JRuby Jump to Story

In this article by Charles Nutter, he steps through using JRuby to monitor a Java Virtual Machine's memory usage, garbage collection, heap space, and so on. If you are an admin who has to monitor running Java apps, you'll find this useful because of the ease he's able to get, slice, and dice relevant data. If you are a developer looking to get ruby into your corporation's data center, this could be a useful technique. And if you have a rails app you need some monitoring on, this is another compelling reason why JRuby might be a deployment platform worth considering.
