Remote access

  • JMX

    • jvisualvm, jconsole

    • Access information from java.lang.managementMBeans

    • SSL and authentication

    • Enable startup: -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote

    • Enable runtime: jcmdManagementServer.start

  • jstatd

    • Daemon that runs on remote machine

    • jstat can connect to daemon

New!


Discovery

What is running on my system?

  • Well-known file for each JVM

    • <temp>/hsperfdata_<user>/<pid>

    • /tmp/hsperfdata_staffan/3636

  • Created on JVM startup

  • Deleted on JVM shutdown

  • Unused files deleted on startup


Java Discovery Protocol

JDP

From freedigitalphotos.net/by digitalart


Attach

Talking to the JVM

  • Allows sending "commands" for execution in the JVM

  • Receive text output

  • Local access by same user only

  • Used by jcmd, jstack, jmap

  • Mechanics differ on platforms


Attach: Linux / BSD / Solaris

  • Create file /tmp/.attach_pid<pid>

  • Send SIGQUIT to JVM

  • JVM looks for /tmp/.attach_pid<pid>

    • If not found a normal thread dump is done

  • JVM will create /tmp/.java_pid<pid> socket

  • Use socket for communication

  • Solaris uses door API instead of socket


Attach: Windows

  • Remote process injects code (!) into the JVM

    • VirtualAllocEx / WriteProcessMemory

  • Remote process creates a thread in the JVM to call the code

    • CreateRemoteThread

  • The code dynamically looks up JVM_EnqueueOperation() and calls it

  • Reads result from a pipe


Diagnostic Commands

  • Helper routines inside the JVM

  • Text output

  • Executed via the jcmd utility (soon JMX)

  • Self-describing help facility

  • Different set of commands for different JVM versions

Coming Soon!


jvmstat / PerfCounter

  • /tmp/hsperfdata_staffan/3636

    • Contains a lot of run-time information about the JVM

  • Memory mapped file

  • Updated continuously by JVM

  • Use jstat to show information in readable form

  • Use "jcmd PerfCounter.print" to see raw contents


Accessing the JVM

Mission Control

Communicating with the JVM


Serviceability Agent

  • For core-files or non-responsive JVMs

  • Uses debugger to read information

  • Last resort - suspends process in unknown state

    jstack <executable> <core>

    jstack –F <pid>

Java Mission Control

  • Java Mission Control


Java Flight Recorder

  • JVM-built-in profiler and tracer

  • Non-intrusive

  • Always-on

  • Circular buffers

  • Captures both JVM and application data

    • GC, Locks, Compiler, Exceptions, CPU Usage, I/O, … …

  • After-the-fact analysis

New!

Future

It’s soon here!

  • More Diagnostic Commands (jcmd)

    • Eventually replacing jstack, jmap, jinfo

  • JMX 2.0

  • Improved Logging for the JVM

    • JEP 158

  • Deprecate JConsole, hprof agent (?)


Take-away

  • Know which tools exists

  • Seen the tools in use

  • Something new and something useful

  • Go and experiment with the tools!
