System Management Application (SMA)
SMA is built on Java Management Extensions (JMX) interface and is instrumented using JMX objects called Managed Beans (MBeans), which expose their management interfaces to the SMA applications through a JMX agent. JMX provides a standard API to monitor and manage resources either locally or via remote access.
There are two sets of utilities in SMA, a standard set with functionality suitable for all administrative and support users, and an advanced set with functions that are intended for developers as they build and debug new applications. The advanced tools might also be used under the guidance of Pegasystems support.
SMA can be accessed through PegaRULES Process Commander, the application server‘s administration page, or directly through a browser.
