When Killed, the Jrockit Virtual Machine Leaves Large Default Tracing Jfr Files in a Temporary Directory

(Doc ID 1541567.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle JRockit - Version R28 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


After killing the JRockit VM running as a service on WIndows using "net stop ", some large binaryfiles (some dozens on Megabytes) are found in the Windows default temporary directory.
These files seem to come from a JRockit Flight Recorder (as they end in .jfr)

This could be reproduced also on UniX systems if killing a JVM with the SIGKILL signal
