IBM WebSphere Application Server - Java Core Debugging using IBM Thread and Monitor Dump Analyzer for Java

And yet more on the theme of WAS performance, following this: -




we have this: -


Having downloaded the tool ( which comes down as a Java Archive  ), and run it from my Mac: -

I then triggered a Java core on one of my IBM BPM JVMs.

Firstly I checked the Process ID (PID) of the relevant JVM: -

ps -elf | grep AppClusterMember1

and then killed the JVM: -

kill -3 7975

and then checked the core dump etc.

ls -altrc /opt/ibm/WebSphereProfiles/AppSrv01

and then pulled the javacore onto my Mac: -

scp wasadmin@bpm86:/opt/ibm/WebSphereProfiles/AppSrv01/javacore* .

wasadmin@bpm86's password:

and then started the JCA ( Java Core Analyzer ) tool: -

java -jar jca457.jar 

I then used the tool to open up the javacore: -


and then started analysing: -



Which is nice :-)
