I have a set up which has 2 tomcats. 1 of them are connected to IIS server. The second one does the house keeping job. Is there any way of monitoring the main tomcat server from an application deployed on house keeper tomcat? Both run on same windows machine.
I read about JMX etc. but is there a simple or open source way of monitoring tomcat from other tomcat?
Basically what I want is to get an email notification from House Keeper when the mainj tomcat goes down or is out of memory.
