Attach with PID using Profile API

Postby iamjat » Mon Jul 10, 2017 10:31 am


I have a need to attach profile using API and passing PID. In Controller API, i dont see a method to pass PID. Its only possible to pass the agent port number which means i need to run my process with agent. Is it possible to attach to a process using PID while using Controller API?

Hi Jatin

The profiler API implies that the agent has loaded, either on start or via attaching it to a running JVM.

You should first run the attach wizard command with the PID specified as described here:
