Console based JVM monitoring
jvm-top lets you monitor your Java/Scala/.. server applications from the terminal.
Requirement: a JDK8 on the server and
JAVA_HOME environment variable pointing to it. It won't work with just a JRE.
- Download the release and extract
./bin/jvm-monfrom extracted directory
- Select a JVM process and press
Enterto monitor it
Backspaceto kill a process
What is available
Currently it shows:
- List of running JVM processes
- Cpu and GC load
- Heap size and usage
- Top threads with cpu usage
Building from source
To build locally run
./gradlew installDist to install to
To develop you will need
npm on your machine and then run
./gradlew npmDeps once to get dependencies.
How does it work?
jvm-mon is a Java application based on these awesome libraries:
- jvmtop Java monitoring for the command-line
The way it works is:
- The java app starts a Node.js engine in-process
- Node.js loads a script with all the widgets
- The script calls back into java land to get metrics
Open to suggestions/contributions on what to add. This project was crafted in a one day so there's definitely room for improvment. Some ideas:
- View process classpath and parameters
- Loaded classes
- Windows build
- View JMX beans
