Profiling with JMX

Enabling the profiler

JMX is Sun's native java platform monitor . JConsole can be used to visualise the profiling data.

To enable JMX add -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote (or -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.port=<portNum> for remote monitoring) as a command line argument when starting bamboo.

For Unix : add the parameter to the RUN_CMD line in bamboo.sh
For Windows : add the parameter to the .\conf\wrapper.conf file as wrapper.java.additional.4=-D....

Restart Bamboo.

Does not work when bamboo is run as a windows service

At the moment profiling via JMX only works when bamboo is run as a console application on windows.
Running bamboo as a windows service with profiling is currently not supported.

Monitoring and Controlling the Profiler with JConsole

Please refer to Sun's documentation

Profiling with Yourkit

Installing Yourkit

Yourkit is an alternative (commercial) java profiler.
Follow the installation instructions for your platform.
You do not need a license if you just run the profiling agent with bamboo.

Enabling the profiler

Add -agentlib:yjpagent=onexit=snapshot to the command line in bamboo.sh or as an additional parameter to wrapper.conf

Then follow the instructions on enabling the profiler manually for your platform.

Restart Bamboo.
