We are about to upgrade our ColdFusion 7 servers to 8 Enterprise, and that’s hugely exciting, but another story. Coldfusion 8 enterprise comes with the Performance monitor, a Flex based app that is rolled into the CF administrator with access to the CFC’s too if you don’t like the app Adobe built. However if you aren’t on Enterprise, or on an earlier version of ColdFusion then you don’t get this kind of cool monitoring built in. I just had a really interesting read of Using JConsole to monitor ColdFusion’s JVM by Dan G. Switzer, and how he hooked up JConsole to CF. I will be giving this a go because we still run a couple of ColdFusion 7 standard servers. Other choices you have are some commercial products like Fusion ReactorSeeFusion
