Doesn't work at all.
Does check what? Right, no correct user, password. I can see the applications running via the webinterface script tells me they are not available.
The AWK for perf info doesn't seem to work just right for Tomcat7.

First line returns:
myapp_JVM_OK:|myapp_JVM_MB;;;0 myapp_JVM_MB;;;0 myapp_JVM_MB;;;0

Thanks for this though! Got me going in the right direction.
