New JVM Diagnostic Collections - WebLogic Server and Glassfish
A significant addition to the WebLogic and Glassfish data collection set is the capture of JVM related information. RDA 8.03 does the following:
- harvests JVM information from the log files
- makes best efforts to find and collect garbage collection and JVM crash logs
- identifies the JVM pid and leverages os (unix only) and JDK tools to capture diagnostic information such as heap summary, process map, address space and native thread stack.
Currently these new java collections are performed by RDA if run against a result set configuration created using the WebLogicServer or GlassFishServer profiles - example:
Create a WebLogicServer profile result set configuration. In this example, we will use the '-s' to explicitly name the result set configuration rather than leave RDA to create the result set configuration using the default name - output.cfg
rda.sh -S -s mywlscollection -p WebLogicServer
Run the collection:
rda.sh -s mywlscollection
Instructions to view the output will be provided in the standard out after the collection is complete.
