System requirements

YourKit Java Profiler consists of two parts: the profiler UI (a desktop application) and the profiler agent, which loads into the profiled Java Virtual Machine (JVM).

The requirements to the profiler UI are stricter: it must run on a 64-bit OS, while the profiler agent is available for 64-bit and, on some platforms, 32-bit JVMs.

Supported Java versions

YourKit Java Profiler supports profiling of the following Java 8 - Java 19 JVMs:

  • OpenJDK, including builds from:
    • AdoptOpenJDK
    • Amazon Corretto
    • Azul Zulu
    • BellSoft Liberica JDK
    • JetBrains
    • Microsoft
    • Oracle
    • Red Hat
    • SapMachine
  • Oracle JDK
  • IBM JDK and OpenJ9

Supported operating systems

YourKit Java Profiler UI is a 64-bit desktop application, it needs a 64-bit operating system to run. The 64-bit agent is available on all supported operating systems. On some operating systems the 32-bit agent is also available.


x86-64, ARM 64-bit (UI and agent), and x86 (agent only):

  • Windows 11, Windows Server 2022
  • Windows 10, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019
  • Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows 8, Windows Server 2012
  • Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2


  • x86 (agent only)
  • x86-64 aka x64
  • ARM 64-bit (AArch64)
  • ARM 32-bit (ARMv7 and higher, hard-float, agent only)
  • ppc64/ppc64le

glibc version 2.12 and higher


  • x64, macOS Mojave 10.14 and newer
  • arm64 aka Apple silicon or M1, macOS Big Sur 11.2.1 and newer


  • ppc64, AIX 7.1 TL5 and newer


  • x86-64, FreeBSD 12 and newer. Limitation: CPU profiling will always measure wall time and thread telemetry will show the same CPU time - the process CPU time - for all threads, because FreeBSD cannot measure per-thread CPU time.
