Jolokia with a more modern system (vs Nagios, even Icinga)
I'm struggling to come up to speed with setting up jolokia on Icinga2. It's user error all the way for me; Java, JMX, and containers are no problem. But I'm finding the set up for Icinga2 and check_jmx4perl slow and a bit painful.
I'm wondering if there are other, newer more modern systems for monitoring other than Nagios and Icinga that still can leverage the great work in Jolokia?

I confess setting up JMX Nagios check with check_jmx4perl is not as easy as it could be. Unfortunately there is some inherent complexity in configuring the various MBeans. You could try OMD (http://omdistro.org/) which is a one-stop distribution for setting up Nagios and it include a pre-installed jmx4perl installation and already some preconfigured checks.
