    VisualVm profiler and JBoss 7 problems

    soltzu Newbie

      I've been struggling with this for a week so any help would be appreciated. I'm a complete n00b so keep that in mind.

       

      I'm trying to profile my web application running on top of JBoss AS 7. Contents of the "version.txt" file in the $JBOSS_HOME directory:

       

          JBoss Enterprise Application Platform - Version 6.1.1.GA

       

      I start JBboss with the following standalone.conf:

       

          ## -*- shell-script -*- ######################################################

          ##                                                                          ##

          ##  JBoss Bootstrap Script Configuration                                    ##

          ##                                                                          ##

          ##############################################################################

         

          #

          # This file is optional; it may be removed if not needed.

          #

         

          #

          # Specify the maximum file descriptor limit, use "max" or "maximum" to use

          # the default, as queried by the system.

          #

          # Defaults to "maximum"

          #

          #MAX_FD="maximum"

         

          #

          # Specify the profiler configuration file to load.

          #

          # Default is to not load profiler configuration file.

          #

          #PROFILER=""

         

          #

          # Specify the location of the Java home directory.  If set then $JAVA will

          # be defined to $JAVA_HOME/bin/java, else $JAVA will be "java".

          #

          #JAVA_HOME="/opt/java/jdk"

         

          #

          # Specify the exact Java VM executable to use.

          #

          #JAVA=""

         

          if [ "x$JBOSS_MODULES_SYSTEM_PKGS" = "x" ]; then

             JBOSS_MODULES_SYSTEM_PKGS="org.jboss.byteman"

          fi

         

          # Uncomment the following line to prevent manipulation of JVM options

          # by shell scripts.

          #

          #PRESERVE_JAVA_OPTS=true

         

          #

          # Specify options to pass to the Java VM.

          #

          if [ "x$JAVA_OPTS" = "x" ]; then

             JAVA_OPTS="-Xms1303m -Xmx1303m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true"

             JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Djboss.modules.system.pkgs=$JBOSS_MODULES_SYSTEM_PKGS -Djava.awt.headless=true"

          else

             echo "JAVA_OPTS already set in environment; overriding default settings with values: $JAVA_OPTS"

          fi

         

          # Sample JPDA settings for remote socket debugging

          #JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -agentlib:jdwp=transport=dt_socket,address=8787,server=y,suspend=n"

         

          # Sample JPDA settings for shared memory debugging

          #JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -agentlib:jdwp=transport=dt_shmem,server=y,suspend=n,address=jboss"

         

          # Uncomment to not use JBoss Modules lockless mode

          #JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Djboss.modules.lockless=false"

         

          # Uncomment to gather JBoss Modules metrics

          #JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Djboss.modules.metrics=true"

         

          #For JaCoco code coverage the JaCoCoAgent is needed

          JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -javaagent:$JBOSS_HOME/jacoco-agent.jar=destfile=$JBOSS_HOME/jacoco.exec"

         

      When I start VisualVm and try to do a memory profiling with instrumentation, VisualVm shows a status bar indication saying "Profiler busy" and I can see a series of lines in the Jboss log saying:

       

          Profiler Agent: 250 classes cached.

       

      Then when the bar gets to 50%, something goes wrong and this is the output in the JBoss log:

       

               Profiler Agent: JNI OnLoad Initializing...

          Profiler Agent: JNI OnLoad Initialized successfully

      I get a lot of classes written into the directory from where JBoss is started, I haven't got enough reputation to post the image.

       

      I also get the following error in VisualVm:

       

      >     Redefinition failed with error 64

      >     Check JVMTI documentation for this error code

       

      Finally, I just want to mentioned that I tried adding these lines to my standalone.conf with no effect:

       

      1. JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Xshare:off -Djboss.modules.system.pkgs=org.netbeans.lib.profiler.server -Dorg.osgi.framework.bootdelegation=org.netbeans.lib.profiler.server,org.netbeans.lib.profiler.server.*"

      2. JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Xbootclasspath/a:/Applications/NetBeans/NetBeans\ 8.0.app/Contents/Resources/NetBeans/profiler/lib/jfluid-server.jar"

      3. JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Xbootclasspath/a:$JAVA_HOME/lib/visualvm/profiler/lib/jfluid-server.jar"

       

      Any clues of what I'm doing wrong? I can provide more info upon request since this is 100% reproducible.
