JRockit Mission Control and HotSpot JConsole Do Not Discover a Local GlassFish Server

(Doc ID 1601401.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle GlassFish Server - Version 3.1.2 to 3.1.2 [Release 3.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A GlassFish Server installation is configured to use either JRockit or Hotspot Java (Oracle Java) as its Java development kit.  Both JRockit and Hotspot Java development kits provide a utility that allows the administrator to attach to instances of their Java runtime, either locally or remotely, to monitor the performance and examine the runtime state.  In the case of JRockit that utility is JRockit Mission Control, or jrmc, and with Hotspot Java is the the Java Console, or jconsole utility.

When run on the same machine as the GlassFish Server, or any other Java application, the utilities initially show the local process but when run at some later date do not list the local process that is known to still be running.
