The Health Check Service In-Depth - Payara Server 5

This is an updated blog of the original which was published in May 2016

Payara Server provides the Health Check Service for automatic self-monitoring in order to detect future problems as soon as possible. When enabled, the Health Check Service periodically checks some low level metrics. Whenever it detects that a threshold is not met, it triggers alert notifications that allow to detect undesired behavior and predict possible failures. All of these automatic checks are very lightweight and run with a negligible impact on performance.

Prevent Command Execution Failures using Dynamic Instance Naming

When creating instances, it can sometimes be a chore remembering what names are already in use or even coming up with a name to use in the first place!  The Dynamic Instance Naming feature, sometimes called auto-naming, introduces a new option to the create-instance & create-local-instance commands that, when enabled, will resolve any name conflicts or generate a name for you.
