In complex uima-as deployments it is hard to find bottlenecks which need scaleup. A JMX-based monitor is needed to collect runtime metrics from every uima-as service. The metrics must include idle time, queue depth, amount of time each service waits for a free CAS. The monitor should be an embeddable component that can be deployed in a java application. The monitor should allow custom formatting of metrics via pluggable extension.
