JasperReports Server provides comprehensive diagnostics so that administrators can monitor the health and performance of the running server. In version 5.0, the server augments the audit logging with monitoring data that is easier to report against. Version 5.0 also introduces diagnostics that provide real-time information about the running server, such as memory usage. All of these tools can help you troubleshoot issues and analyze performance.

Auditing stores key events that are of interest to system administrators, such as login/logout time, user, report generated, report details, and object sizes. The audited events can be saved and moved to an archive automatically after a specified number of days.
Monitoring is based on audit events and provides a multi-dimensional Domain to create Ad Hoc views. This helps you generate reports that contain key metrics such as which reports use the most resources. This allow you to find places to optimize your data sources and your reports.
Diagnostics provide run-time data that gives the overall health of your server instance. For example, it includes load values such as the number of logged in user, the number of currently running reports, and the number of scheduled reports. The diagnostic data is exposed in a custom data source and can be easily viewed in a report or integrated with industry standard management consoles.
