setting telemetryperiod from the YourKit GUI

Postby HenrikJson » Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:12 am


I cannot set telemetryperiod as jvm arguments because our Jboss parameters file parser uses comma as delimiter.

I am following guide at https://www.yourkit.com/docs/java/help/agent.jsp
in particular the section Step 2: (Optional) Specify startup options
The options are comma separated: -agentpath:<full agent library path>[=<option>, ...].

E.g. if i try to set like


the portion behind the last comma is respectfully ignored.

i have tried to surround the whole argument with quotes and escape the comma within quotes but doesn't work either.

1. how do i set the telemetryperiod from the GUI?

2. I could change the delimiter in the parameters parser but there are many other users of that code so many dependencies.

appreciate your advice on (1) above

Many thanks and regards

There is no way to set this parameter from GUI, only via the startup option.

The syntax you use is correct, so it is very strange that the option is ignored.

Please note that "telemetryperiod" is specified in milliseconds, not seconds.

Please also use the latest version because version 2015 is no longer supported. If you experience the problem with version 2017.02 could you please provide a snapshot to [email protected]

Best regards,
