".oracle_jre_usage" Directory is Created even when Java Usage Tracker is Disabled (Doc ID 2392656.1)

Last updated on MARCH 31, 2023

Applies to:

Java SE JDK and JRE - Version 8 to 8
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On Java 8u131 and 8u144 versions, even if tracker is disabled (by default), ".oracle_jre_usage" directory is created in user home directory. This is not the expected behavior. 
If tracker is disabled (by default), ".oracle_jre_usage" directory should not be created in user home directory.

With Java SE 7 versions, ".oracle_jre_usage" is not created.

This issue is not seen using Java 8u51 and 7u79. 
This issue is also observed using Oracle JRE 8u
144-b32 (at time of writing).
