Hi Heiko,

what graphing lib do you use ? AFAIK only Highcharts (not LGPL compliant) is more or less free of memory leaks at the moment. This is especially important for periodically updated Javascript charts (and not so much for statich charts).

Why replicate what's already available through jconsole? Seems like a bit of wasted effort to me.

@pirx We are currently using the google visualization libs. I did some long running tests (>1hour) and couldn't see any problems. Do you have any concrete numbers/test results?

@stian console works for most cases. however it's not easily accessible remotely (not web based) and doesn't really work for large set of server (managed domain). That's the reason we've added it. Does that make sense to you?
