Please follow instructions for your operating system on how to launch the profiler UI:
Launch YourKit Java Profiler from in the Start menu
Download the application, unzip; optionally, move to
Try to avoid using the native application launcher by running the following command the Terminal:
<profiler installation directory>/Contents/Resources/bin/yjp.sh
Although the profiler started this way will have minor UI defects such as non-native main menu style and an incorrect application icon in the dock, in general it will work just fine.
Note: since build 14112 the profiler falls back to this approach automatically,
i.e. tries to restart itself via
yjp.sh after a crash.
Unpack the installation bundle and run
<Profiler Installation Directory>/bin/yjp.sh
The profiler UI requires Java 8 to run. The download bundle contains JRE for Linux x64 and should run out of the box on that platform. On other platforms, please ensure that the appropriate Java version is installed.
