Setting up Oracle JRockit Mission Control (JRMC)

JRockit Mission Control allows the ability to monitor more specific metrics in your JVM. Though the versions here are now deprecated, this blog post nonetheless is intended to describe how to set it up easily.

1. Add the highlighted arguments to your EXTRA_JAVA_PROPERTIES in the $DOMAIN_HOME/bin/ script by adding the highlighted text:
EXTRA_JAVA_PROPERTIES="${EXTRA_JAVA_PROPERTIES} -Xmanagement:port=7091,ssl=false,authenticate=false,autodiscovery=true"
2. Restart the managed server(s).

3. Download JRockit from here (second link is specific to 64-bit Windows):
4. On your local laptop, double-click on jrmc.exe located in the C:\Program Files\Java\jrockit-jdk1.6.0_45-R28.2.7-4.1.0\bin folder.

5. Right-click on "Connectors" and click on "New Connection":

6. Simply enter the HOST and click on "Finish" (note that the port 7091 is the default and is what was configured in the EXTRA_JAVA_PROPERTIES earlier):

7. Right-click on soahost1 (or whatever host you created) and select "Start Console" to start viewing some impressive real-time metrics:

Good luck!

Applicable Versions:
  • Oracle WebLogic Server 11g
  • Oracle JRockit JDK 1.6.0
