Running JDK 7 Tool " jstack -m " Against WebLogic or Glassfish JVM Infinitely Loops

(Doc ID 1591155.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 27, 2017

Applies to:

Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 7 to 7 [Release 7]
Oracle Weblogic Server - Version 10.3.1 to
Oracle GlassFish Server - Version 3.1.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The JDK tool 'jstack' is being run in 'mixed mode' against an application server 'JVM' e.g WebLogic Server or GlassFish

The problem only reproduces if you include the '-m' option. It does not reproduce if you run jstack with the '-l' (long listing) option e.g jstack -l.

Also other JDK tools such as 'jmap', 'jinfo', 'jstat' work as expected.
