storage area on servers (remnote profiling)

Postby nicolasw » Tue Nov 08, 2016 1:59 pm

While remote-profiling I see on servers some logs in the user data folder (as documented in the docs section) however the amount of information I see there is quite limited, hence the question : where is the profiling data stored on servers and what kind of volume should I expect with the default setup?
I need this information to clarify whether or not I am able to run permanently yourkit on my systems.
Any guidance appreciated

The log files in ~/.yjp/log are for troubleshooting purposes only. They do not contain any user useful information.

Instead, you should explicitly start/stop profiling modes and capture snapshots or remotely connect to the profiled application to see live profiling results.

I suppose historical information has to be stored somewhere.. what kind of volume of data / logs at any location on the server should I expect?

Yes you can, but ensure you use appropriate agent startup options. The best way to do this is to use the EE server integration wizard: https://www.yourkit.com/docs/java/help/ ... remote.jsp

As I wrote, profiling information is NOT written to disk by itself. Instead you may connect to a running profiling application to see profiling data live (including up to 1 hour of recent telemetry) and/or capture snapshot files for further analysis.
