jstat(1)                    General Commands Manual                   jstat(1)



NAME
       jstat - Java Virtual Machine Statistics Monitoring Tool

SYNOPSIS
       jstat [ generalOption | outputOptionsvmid [interval[s|ms] [count]] ]

PARAMETERS
       generalOption
          A single general command-line option (-help, -options, or -version)

       outputOptions
          One or more output options, consisting of a single statOption, plus
          any of the -t, -h, and -J options.

       vmid
          Virtual machine identifier, a string indicating the target Java
          virtual machine (JVM). The general syntax is
          [protocol:][//]lvmid[@hostname[:port]/servername]
          The syntax of the vmid string largely corresponds to the syntax of a
          URI. The vmid can vary from a simple integer representing a local
          JVM to a more complex construction specifying a communications
          protocol, port number, and other implementation-specific values. See
          Virtual Machine Identifier for details.

       interval[s|ms]
          Sampling interval in the specified units, seconds (s) or
          milliseconds (ms). Default units are milliseconds.  Must be a
          positive integer.  If specified, jstat will produce its output at
          each interval.

       count
          Number of samples to display. Default value is infinity; that is,
          jstat displays statistics until the target JVM terminates or the
          jstat command is terminated.  Must be a positive integer.

DESCRIPTION
       The jstat tool displays performance statistics for an instrumented
       HotSpot Java virtual machine (JVM). The target JVM is identified by its
       virtual machine identifier, or vmid option described below.

       NOTE: This utility is unsupported and may not be available in future
       versions of the JDK. It is not currently available on Windows 98 and
       Windows ME. platforms.

   VIRTUAL MACHINE IDENTIFIER
       The syntax of the vmid string largely corresponds to the syntax of a
       URI:
       [protocol:][//]lvmid[@hostname][:port][/servername]

       protocol
          The communications protocol. If the protocol is omitted and a
          hostname is not specified, the default protocol is a platform
          specific optimized local protocol. If the protocol is omitted and a
          hostname is specified, then the default protocol is rmi.

       lvmid
          The local virtual machine identifier for the target JVM. The lvmid
          is a platform-specific value that uniquely identifies a JVM on a
          system. The lvmid is the only required component of a virtual
          machine identifier. The lvmid is typically, but not necessarily, the
          operating system's process identifier for the target JVM process.
          You can use the jps command to determine the lvmid. Also, you can
          determine lvmid on Unix platforms with the ps command, and on
          Windows with the Windows Task Manager.

       hostname
          A hostname or IP address indicating the target host. If hostname is
          omitted, then the target host is the local host.

       port
          The default port for communicating with the remote server. If the
          hostname is omitted or the protocol specifies an optimized, local
          protocol, then port is ignored. Otherwise, treatment of the port
          parameter is implementation specific. For the default rmi protocol,
          the port indicates the port number for the rmiregistry on the remote
          host. If port is omitted, and protocol indicates rmi, then the
          default rmiregistry port (1099) is used.

       servername
          The treatment of this parameter depends on implementation. For the
          optimized local protocol, this field is ignored. For the rmi
          protocol, it represents the name of the RMI remote object on the
          remote host.

OPTIONS
       The jstat command supports two types of options, general options and
       output options. General options cause jstat to display simple usage and
       version information. Output options determine the content and format of
       the statistical output.

       NOTE: All options, and their functionality are subject to change or
       removal in future releases.

   GENERAL
       OPTIONS

       If you specify one of the general options, you cannot specify any other
       option or parameter.

       -help
          Display help message.

       -version
          Display version information.

       -options
          Display list of statistics options. See the Output Options section
          below.

   OUTPUT
       OPTIONS

       If you do not specify a general option, then you can specify output
       options. Output options determine the content and format of jstat's
       output, and consist of a single statOption, plus any of the other
       output options (-h, -t, and -J).  The statOption must come first.

       Output is formatted as a table, with columns are separated by spaces. A
       header row with titles describes the columns.  Use the -h option to set
       the frequency at which the header is displayed.  Column header names
       are generally consistent between the different options. In general, if
       two options provide a column with the same name, then the data source
       for the two columns are the same.

       Use the -t option to display a time stamp column, labeled Timestamp as
       the first column of output. The Timestamp column contains the elapsed
       time, in seconds, since startup of the target JVM. The resolution of
       the time stamp is dependent on various factors and is subject to
       variation due to delayed thread scheduling on heavily loaded systems.

       Use the interval and count parameters to determine how frequently and
       how many times, respectively, jstat displays its output.

       NOTE: You are advised not to write scripts to parse jstat's output
       since the format may change in future releases. If you choose to write
       scripts that parse jstat output, expect to modify them for future
       releases of this tool.

       -statOption
          Determines the statistics information that jstat displays. The
          following table lists the available options.  Use the -options
          general option to display the list of options for a particular
          platform installation.


       -hn
          Display a column header every n samples (output rows), where n is a
          positive integer. Default value is 0, which displays the column
          header above the first row of data.

       -tn
          Display a timestamp column as the first column of output. The
          timestamp is the the time since the start time of the target JVM.

       -JjavaOption
          Pass javaOption to the java application launcher. For example,
          -J-Xms48m sets the startup memory to 48 megabytes. For a complete
          list of options, see the following documents:

   STATOPTIONS AND
       OUTPUT

       The following tables summarize the columns that jstat outputs for each
       statOption.

   -class Option
   -compiler
       Option


   -gc Option
   -gccapacity Option
   -gccause
       Option

       This option displays the same summary of garbage collection statistics
       as the -gcutil option, but includes the causes of the last garbage
       collection event and (if applicable) the current garbage collection
       event. In addition to the columns listed for -gcutil, this option adds
       the following columns:


   -gcnew Option
   -gcnewcapacity Option
   -gcold Option
   -gcoldcapacity Option
   -gcpermcapacity Option
   -gcutil
       Option


   -printcompilation Option

       This section presents some examples of monitoring a local JVM with a
       lvmid of 21891.

   Using the gcutil option
       This example attaches to lvmid 21891 and takes 7 samples at 250
       millisecond intervals and displays the output as specified by the
       -gcutil option.

       The output of this example shows that a young generation collection
       occurred between the 3rd and 4th sample. The collection took 0.001
       seconds and promoted objects from the eden space (E) to the old space
       (O), resulting in an increase of old space utilization from 9.49% to
       9.51%. Before the collection, the survivor space was 12.44% utilized,
       but after this collection it is only 7.74% utilized.

   Repeating the column header
       string

       This example attaches to lvmid 21891 and takes samples at 250
       millisecond intervals and displays the output as specified by -gcutil
       option. In addition, it uses the -h3 option to output the column header
       after every 3 lines of data.

       In addition to showing the repeating header string, this example shows
       that between the 2nd and 3rd samples, a young GC occurred. Its duration
       was 0.001 seconds. The collection found enough live data that the
       survivor space 0 utilization (S0U) would would have exceeded the
       desired survivor Size (DSS). As a result, objects were promoted to the
       old generation (not visible in this output), and the tenuring threshold
       (TT) was lowered from 31 to 2.

       Another collection occurs between the 5th and 6th samples. This
       collection found very few survivors and returned the tenuring threshold
       to 31.

   Including a
       time stamp for each sample

       This example attaches to lvmid 21891 and takes 3 samples at 250
       millisecond intervals. The -t option is used to generate a time stamp
       for each sample in the first column.

       The Timestamp column reports the elapsed time in seconds since the
       start of the target JVM. In addition, the -gcoldcapacity output shows
       the old generation capacity (OGC) and the old space capacity (OC)
       increasing as the heap expands to meet allocation and/or promotion
       demands. The old generation capacity (OGC) has grown to from 11696 KB
       to 13820 KB after the 81st Full GC (FGC). The maximum capacity of the
       generation (and space) is 60544 KB (OGCMX), so it still has room to
       expand.

   Monitor
       instrumentation for a remote JVM

       This example attaches to lvmid 40496 on the system named remote.domain
       using the -gcutil option, with samples taken every second indefinitely.
       jstat -gcutil 40496@remote.domain 1000


       The lvmid is combined with the name of the remote host to construct a
       vmid of 40496@remote.domain. This vmid results in the use of the rmi
       protocol to communicate to the default jstatd server on the remote
       host. The jstatd server is located using the rmiregistry on
       remote.domain that is bound to the default rmiregistry port (port
       1099).
