I added https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=536280 as a proxy for the improvements described here : 


Dynamic metrics would make it possible to do BAM-style tracking in RHQ.

Comment 2 Edson Tirelli 2012-01-05 21:46:52 UTC
In addition to dynamic metrics previously mentioned, specially for JMX-based use cases, RHQ should be able to monitor short-lived resources. 

For instance, in Drools/Hibernate/etc, where you have sessions being created and disposed all the time, the typical interval based (24hs default) discovery cycle is not enough. 

My suggestion would be the ability to define bean name patterns, and discover any beans matching those name patterns every time metrics are collected. This will allow RHQ to aggregate metrics from multiple short-lived resources (like Drools sessions) into their views and graphs.
