How to enable the Java Monitoring and Management Console (JConsole) to monitor performance and resource consumption on Windows.
The JDK 5.0 provides extensive monitoring and management support through the Java Monitoring and Management Console (JConsole) tool. JConsole uses the built-in instrumentation of the Java virtual machine to provide information on performance and resource consumption of applications running on the Java platform using Java Management Extension (JMX) technology.
To enable JConsole for the Tomcat process on Windows:
1. Click on the "java" tab in the Tomcat monitor
