JMC 6 vs JMC 5.5 less functionalities?

Working for an editor, we make intensive use of JFR & JMC. We enforce also some of our big customers to have the required licenses for production usage. So far so good.

Used to JMC 5.5, I just tried this morning JMC 6 from JDK 9.0.1 to dig into a client JFR. I just cannot find my way in JMC 6, so my question will be simple: is the feature set in JMC 6 equivalent to the one in 5.5?

I cannot find a way to view some of my favorites panes: the events graph, the threads contentions & lock instances, plus all the others rich features that were in JMC 5.5.

Am I blind or has the tool be cleaned up of all the interesting features before going open source?

    Hello Matthieu,

    As you've found out, JMC 6.0 has been major change on the flight recorder perspective. We're currently working on some bug fixes and enhancements along with the work of open sourcing JMC but you'll still have to learn the new JMC 6.0 way of doing things.

    Have you had a look at the JMC 6.0 labs from JavaOne 2017 (JMC & JFR in JDK 9 Labs – Marcus Hirt)? If not; I highly recommend that for getting a quick intro to JFR/JMC 6.0.
