It would be good if the JMX API included standard types for metrics and statistics.  Compare the statistics defined by J2EE 1.4:

The J2EE statistics types suffer from the problem that they are interfaces with no standard implementation classes.  This means that they cannot reliably be serialized between a server and a client unless the client deploys implementation-specific classes appropriate for the particular server it is talking to.  This can probably be avoided in the context of JMX by using a java.lang.reflect.InvocationHandler that is backed by a javax.management.openmbean.CompositeData.

J2EE is superceded by lot of newer technologies and hence this enhancement may not be relevant anymore. Closing this as wont fix.

EVALUATION There is a lot of prior art in this domain. In addition to the J2EE work, there is the CIM model, and the OSS Quality of Service API defined by JSR 90.
