Connecting jconsole to JBoss AS

Version 4

    Enabling management agent in JVM

    To attach jconsole to a JVM, it has to be launched with a management agent:

    java -jar ... -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote
    

     

    To run JBoss AS with the agent enabled, simply run:

    <jboss-home>/bin/run.sh -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote

     

    See JBossRunParameters.

    Connecting jconsole to a JVM

    To list java processes, run jps (found in <java_home/bin>).

    $ jps -l
    28922 org.jboss.Main
    28946 sun.tools.jps.Jps
    28871 org.codehaus.classworlds.Launcher
    18290 org.netbeans.Main

    Then connect the jconsole:

    $ jconsole 28922
    

    Happy monitoring
