1 About Java Mission Control

This chapter provides an overview of Java Mission Control and its features.

Java Mission Control enables you to monitor and manage Java applications without introducing the performance overhead normally associated with these types of tools. It uses data collected for normal adaptive dynamic optimization of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). Besides minimizing the performance overhead, this approach eliminates the problem of the observer effect, which occurs when monitoring tools alter the execution characteristics of the system.

Java Mission Control consists of the client application (JMC client) and a number of plug-ins that run on it:

Java Mission Control plug-ins connect to a JVM using the Java Management Extensions (JMX) agent. For more information about JMX, see the Java Management Extensions documentation.
