      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      The jmx remote connection to the monitoring system of the JVM only allows to specify the port and not the interface on which it's listening.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      When running cluster software binding instances to a specific (virtual) interface is necessary.

      If the ports cannot be bound to a specific interface this will prevent smooth failover in the cluster.

      Also the SNMP-functionality of monitoring supports bidning to an interface.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Setting a property, for example called "com.sun.management.jmxremote. interface=localhost" would bind the JMX remote to only bind to the loopback interface.

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      Twiddling around with the DNS so that the default algorithm selects the desired interface, this is however very cumbersome and quite often not practially possible.
