"As you know from Part 1 of this three-article series, it's important to monitor the availability and performance of Java applications and their dependencies in production to ensure problem detection and accelerate diagnosis and triage. Source-code-level instrumentation of classes you want to monitor can have the advantages I discuss in Part 1, but it's frequently not permissible or practical. For example, many of your interesting monitoring points might be in third-party components for which you don't have the source code. Here in Part 2, I focus on methods of instrumenting Java classes and resources without modifying the original source code."
