Console attach wizard
This article describes how to use console wizard to attach profiler agent to a running JVM. Console wizard might be useful if you want to profile remote Java EE server or the machine has no graphics environment.
Note that attaching profiler agent to a running JVM has limitations, which can be avoided starting application with the profiler agent.
See also Attaching profiler agent to a running JVM.
Running the wizard
Install profiler on the machine where your Java application is running. License key is not required to use the wizard.
Run the command below:
<Profiler Installation Directory>\bin\attach.bat
<Profiler Installation Directory>\bin\attach.bat <PID>
<Profiler Installation Directory>\bin\attach.bat <PID> <startup_options>
<Profiler Installation Directory>/Contents/Resources/bin/attach.sh
<Profiler Installation Directory>/Contents/Resources/bin/attach.sh <PID>
<Profiler Installation Directory>/Contents/Resources/bin/attach.sh <PID> <startup_options>
On other platforms
<directory with unpacked content>/bin/attach.sh
<directory with unpacked content>/bin/attach.sh <PID>
<directory with unpacked content>/bin/attach.sh <PID> <startup_options>
<PID>is an optional parameter.
Specify it to immediately attach the agent to particular application.
<PID> is not specified,
the wizard will show the list of running JVMs
and offer to choose to which JVM to connect.
is an optional parameter to specify additional startup options.
<PID> parameter is not specified,
the wizard will offer to specify startup options.
Follow the instructions that will appear:
After the profiler agent is attached, its port will be printed out. Use this port number to connect to the application and start profiling.
