Generating Java Dumps

Starting from version 9.31.0001, you can use the Administration Console to generate Java dumps (heap dumps and thread dumps).

Note: Java dumps can be generated for started PPM server only.

To generate Java dumps in the Administration Console:

  1. In the Administration Console Actions panel, select Support Task > Generate Java Dumps.
  2. In the Java Dumps Generator page, click Generate.

Note: You can also generate Java dumps by running the command sh .\kGenJavaDump.sh. For more information, see kGenJavaDump.sh .

The generated Java dumps are collected in the <PPM_HOME>\bin\support\javadumps folder:

  • The heap dump files are in the following format:

    <NODE_NAME>_<PID>_<TIMESTAMP>_heap.hprof

  • The thread dump files are in the following format:

    <NODE_NAME>_<PID>_<TIMESTAMP>_thread.hprof
