Debugging your Production JVM
So your server is having issues? memory? Connections? Limited response? Is the first solution to bounce the server? Perhaps change some VM flags or add some logging? In todays Java 6 world, with its superior runtime monitoring and management capabilities the reasons to the bounce the server have been greatly reduced.
Combined with proper JMX instrumentation, the need to bounce the server may be eliminated for all but the rarest of cases.
This session will look at the Java 6 monitoring and management capabilities, which includes the ability to make VM argument changes on the fly. In addition to what is provide in the JDK, a number of freely available management tools will be demonstrated.
