Mission Control 4.0.0 - New and Noteworthy

JRockit Flight Recorder

Always on recording

It's now possible to profile JRockit and any application running on top of the JVM continuously in a production environment by starting up the JVM with the flag -XX:FlightRecorderOptions=defaultrecording=true. The recorded data can be flushed to disk at regular intervals which allows Mission Control to "go back in time" and see what really happened inside the runtime when the application misbehaved. The overhead of using the flight recorder is very low, typically less than 1%, and it's recommended to have it always turned on. By default the flight recorder collects information about CPU-usage, garbage collections, memory usage, latencies, hot methods, memory allocations and other interesting data for troubleshooting a Java application.

Always on recording

JRockit Flight Recorder replaces the JRockit Runtime Analyzer recordings (JRA).

Event based profiling

All profiling data produced by the JRockit JVM now come as self-described events that Mission Control can visualize.

Range selection on all tabs

For all the the tabs in the flight recorder user interface it is possible to select the time range that you wish to see profiling data for. For instance, by selecting a time range, you can easily see which methods were executed the most during that time.
