jvmtop is a lightweight console application to monitor all accessible, running jvms on a machine.
In a top-like manner, it displays JVM internal metrics (e.g. memory information) of running java processes.
Jvmtop does also include a CPU console profiler.
It's tested with different releases of Oracle JDK, IBM JDK and OpenJDK on Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD and Windows hosts.
Jvmtop requires a JDK - a JRE will not suffice.
Please note that it's currently in an alpha state -
if you experience an issue or need further help, please let us know.
Jvmtop is open-source. Checkout the source code. Patches are very welcome!
Also have a look at the documentation or at a captured live-example.

08/14/2013 jvmtop 0.8.0 released
- improved attach compatibility for all IBM jvms
- fixed wrong CPU/GC values for IBM J9 jvms
- in case of unsupported heap size metric retrieval, n/a will be displayed instead of 0m
- improved argument parsing, support for short-options, added help (pass
--help), see issue #28 (now using the great jopt-simple library)
- when passing the
--onceoption, terminal will not be cleared anymore (see issue #27)
- improved shell script for guessing the path if a
JAVA_HOMEenvironment variable is not present (thanks to Markus Kolb)
In VM detail mode it shows you the top CPU-consuming threads, beside detailed metrics:
