JRockit Mission Control Configuration Steps


Mission Control is a monitoring and troubleshooting application provided with Oracle JRockit. From a monitoring point of view, Mission Control provides a Management Console to monitor the garbage-collection behavior, processor utilization by the JVM, memory allocation, thread utilization, and some other useful monitoring metrics.

Mission Control is a standalone application, so it must be started either locally from the same machine that WebLogic is running on or from a remote workstation.

Oracle JRockit must be downloaded and installed in the Windows desktop. Download Oracle JRockit 6 for Microsoft Windows at Jrockit Downloads.
