VisualVM - not supported JVM

985823 Member Posts: 6

Hi there

I am trying to use VisualVM 1.3.8 to monitor a Java application which is running on JRockit

and the CPU show "not supported for this JVM" and sample are all disabled.

I have read through other discussion page, and I am not quite sure if this because VisualVM is on the JDK1.8 and

my application is on Jrockit VM. If that is the case, I think I have give up VisualVM since most of our oracle products are

based on Jrockit, like hyperion.

Anyone could confirm this?


PS: overview copied from VisualVM.

Visual VM


JVM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (25.66-b17, mixed mode)

Java: version 1.8.0_66, vendor Oracle Corporation

JVM Flags: <none>

My Java application:


JVM: Oracle JRockit(R) (R28.2.0-79-146777-1.6.0_29-20111005-1808-windows-x86_64, compiled mode)

    There could be several reason, like jrockit not being a HotSpot VM, it being old and not supported anymore, ...

    Why don't you use Mission Control instead which was designed for jrockit?
