4 Troubleshoot Performance Issues Using JFR

This chapter identifies performance issues with a Java application and debugs these issues using the Java Flight Recorder.

The Java Flight Recorder (JFR) is a commercial feature. You can use it for free on developer desktops or laptops, and for evaluation purposes in test, development, and production environments. However, to enable JFR on a production server, you must have a commercial license. Using JMC UI for other purposes on the JDK does not require a commercial license.

For more details about the JFR commercial license, see the license agreement. For details about creating a flight recording, see How to Produce a Flight Recording.

This chapter gives examples of performance issues that you can identify and debug issues using the Java Flight Recorder.
