Chapter 11. Monitoring the Performance and Health of GeoServer

With our GeoServer instances up, running, and secured, it is now time to consider whether they are performing well, and think about how we can keep an eye on them as they start to get utilized.

In this chapter, we will look at what tools exist within GeoServer to enable us to keep an eye on how things are going. We will understand how to configure them, and then look at how we can interpret the information generated to help us make decisions. We will also look at an approach to stress test our GeoServer instances to understand whether they are performing well.

By the end of this chapter, we will have covered the following topics:

  • Understanding the importance of monitoring the health and performance of GeoServer

  • Installing and configuring the Monitor extension

  • Using JMeter to stress test GeoServer

  • Understanding information to help make decisions
