OUD - How to Enable Java Flight Recorder (JFR) with Oracle Unified Directory (Doc ID 2097394.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 12, 2021

Oracle Unified Directory - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Oracle recommends setting up Java Mission Control with Java Flight Recorder - JFR to monitor the systems on an ongoing basis while having the lowest possible impact on the running system. This is a best practice to supplement the OUD standard data collection of RDA data collection and logs. It is a constant monitoring of the java layer over a rolling period of time, at a lower level than that captured in logs or from jstack snapshots collected by RDA. Since it will cover a period of time (an hour or more) and at greater depth, it is much more likely to capture the java activity leading up to an issue which, in turn, will increase the possibility of identifying root cause and solution.

NOTE: Customers need to be licensed for JAVA SE Advanced to use JFR and/or the Java Mission Control. Contact Oracle java Sale representative to acquire a license if necessary. The exception to this licensing requirement is when Oracle Support asks for JFR to investigate an issue which requires JFR data to troubleshoot.
