How is monitoring HiveMQ handled?

Asked by Richard during the HiveMQ & Kafka webinar

Question: Is Monitoring HiveMQ done by HiveMQ itself or by using 3rd party tooling? Can the process be dynamically retuned in case resources are being exhausted.

HiveMQ exposes Metrics. These can be collected and processed by monitoring solutions. One setup which is popular with many of our customers and how to configure it is described this blog post.

HiveMQ has mechanisms to deal with spikes in load (such as Overload Protection). How these behave must be configured at startup since HiveMQ currently does not support configuration hot reloading.

Kind regards,
