Cluster statistics utility - queue and thread monitoring

A utility is required that logs queue usage on each node in a Sterling Integrator cluster

The utility should track queue usage over time by node and for each node be able to provide statistics (eg. average, min, max, count) for a time period on: Queue depths over time; Time on queue (by business process, or by queue) [wait time]; Time on thread (by business process, or by queue) [execution time]; Number of times business processes have been returned to queue (by business process, or by queue); Number of cycles executed (by business process, or by queue); Occurrence of thread stealing (by business process, or by queue); Occurrence of thread being stolen (by queue); Occurrence of handover of business processes to other nodes (by business process, or by queue).

All other information displayed in real time by Queue Watcher would also be useful to keep a record of over time and analyse - some examples of other useful info: DB Pool Usage, JVM Memory Heap space usage, Cluster Multicast Information.

    This idea should be prioritized in the product to compete with other monitoring tools out there in the market.
