    JBoss Profiler Installation in Windows - questions


      Hi all,

      I'm absolutely new in JBoss technology.

      I have two PCs in my workplace (both in our local network):
      1. Windows XP Professional Version 2002 SP3 with JBoss 4.0.5.GA installed
      2. Windows 2000 Advanced Server SP4 with JBoss 3.2.1 installed

      We have web-application working under JBoss.
      Initially, I have to test this application located in the 1-st PC (Win XP) with JBoss Profiler.

      I'm already loaded jboss-profiler-1.0.CR4.zip from jbossprofiler download page. It is most popular version there.

      The questions are:
      1. How install this profiler to JBoss (Windows XP)? - This is the main question!
      2. How to make it for Windows 2000 Advance Server?
      3. That difference between 1.0 CR4.zip (that I have) and 1.0 RC3.zip in my case?

      I loaded and quickly read jboss-profiler.pdf but don't understand how to install profiler to my PC(s).
      So, I need to know steps sequence (in common) to do that and some details too.

      Thank you for any your advises,

          Hi qa,

          until now you got no answer. I'm starting to with the profiler version jboss-profiler-2.0.Beta3.SP1, so we are brothers in pain ;-)

          Initially, take a look to the read me. In my case there is a section "Deployment in JBoss Application Server" telling to copy what files to what place. The thing with the JAVA_OPTS is described close to the end of the readme. After I did all that things I get the following output when starting the server. I hpe one of the experts can explain a little bit more.

          JAVA_OPTS: -Dprogram.name=run.bat -server -Xms128m -Xmx512m -XX:+CMSPermGenSweepingEnabled -XX:PermSize=256m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m -Dsun.rmi.dgc.client.gcInte
          rval=3600000 -Dsun.rmi.dgc.server.gcInterval=3600000 -javaagent:jboss-profiler.jar -Djboss-profiler.properties=jboss-profiler.properties
           CLASSPATH: C:\Programme\Java\jdk1.6.0_13\lib\tools.jar;C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\user\Eigene Dateien\workspace\orgavision\jboss\bin\run.jar
          Please use CMSClassUnloadingEnabled in place of CMSPermGenSweepingEnabled in the future

            the javassist.jar should be mentioned in the README.txt, too. I put it to the bin-directory as well.

            • 3. Re: JBoss Profiler Installation in Windows - questions

              JBoss Profiler 1.0 and JBoss Profiler 2.0 are two very different things.

              JBoss Profiler 1.0 is a log based JVMTI profiler.

              JBoss Profiler 2.0 is currently a Java5+ profiler. Work is being done on a RichFaces UI and a JVMTI/HPROF backend.

              I have converted the documentation for JBoss Profiler 2 to Docbook that generates HTML and PDF as the result. Please, checkout the branch in SVN.

              As for javasisst.jar in bin/ -- seems like you are running JBoss AS 4.2 and the requirement is listed in the new documentation.

              It will be released in JBoss 2.0.0.Beta4 - hopefully together with the initial version of the web ui.

                I am using jboss-profiler-2.0beta3.sp1 on jboss AS 4.2.2. After doing all the necessary setup I ran the snapshot command
                java -jar jboss-profiler-client.jar snapshot
                and got socket connection error as below. I have even change the port on jboss-profiler.properties to my web server port and still the port 5400 error came up. Where can I change this port configuration or is there anything else I am missing.

                Thank you.

                  After some try and error I have managed to run the command as below
                  java -jar jboss-profiler-client.jar -h -p 5400 listSnapshots

                    That did the trick for me too. Thanks!
