Interface RuntimeMXBean

All Superinterfaces:
PlatformManagedObject

public interface RuntimeMXBean extends PlatformManagedObject
The management interface for the runtime system of the Java virtual machine.

A Java virtual machine has a single instance of the implementation class of this interface. This instance implementing this interface is an MXBean that can be obtained by calling the ManagementFactory.getRuntimeMXBean() method or from the platform MBeanServer method.

The ObjectName for uniquely identifying the MXBean for the runtime system within an MBeanServer is:

java.lang:type=Runtime
It can be obtained by calling the PlatformManagedObject.getObjectName() method.

This interface defines several convenient methods for accessing system properties about the Java virtual machine.

    • getInputArguments

      List<String> getInputArguments()
      Returns the input arguments passed to the Java virtual machine which does not include the arguments to the main method. This method returns an empty list if there is no input argument to the Java virtual machine.

      Some Java virtual machine implementations may take input arguments from multiple different sources: for examples, arguments passed from the application that launches the Java virtual machine such as the 'java' command, environment variables, configuration files, etc.

      Typically, not all command-line options to the 'java' command are passed to the Java virtual machine. Thus, the returned input arguments may not include all command-line options.

      Returns:
      a list of String objects; each element is an argument passed to the Java virtual machine.

      Returns:
      start time of the Java virtual machine in milliseconds.
    • getSystemProperties

      Map<String,​String> getSystemProperties()
      Returns a map of names and values of all system properties. This method calls System.getProperties() to get all system properties. Properties whose name or value is not a String are omitted.

      MBeanServer access:
      The mapped type of Map<String,String> is TabularData with two items in each row as follows:

      Name and Type for each item

      a map of names and values of all system properties.
      Throws:
