JVM GC Graph

This gem creates a static HTML page that uses Google's Interactive Charts to display JVM heap usage. In order of this to work, you need to pass the following options to the JVM at startup:

-XX:-PrintGCTimeStamps -XX:-PrintGCDetails -Xloggc:<location of log file>

Here is an example:

java -XX:-PrintGCTimeStamps -XX:-PrintGCDetails -Xloggc:/path/to/memory_gc.log MyApp

Installation

gem install jvm_gc_graph

Does require the json_pure gem if on 1.8.7.

Usage

jvm_gc_graph -f /path/to/memory_gc.log -o /www/gc_log.html
  1. Looks at /path/to/memory_gc.log which contains the gc log
  2. Writes the result to the gc_log.html file.

See jvm_gc_graph -h for more options.
