Welcome to the JavaRanch, Pravin!

I don't think your question relates to Tomcat, but most Java products are shipped as ZIP files. Though some, like the JVMs and JDKs may also be available with OS-specific installers.

For VisualVM, the instructions can be found at https://visualvm.java.net/download.html

The important ones are:

Hi Tom,

Thank you so much for the fast reply.

I am really for missing it, it is for an tomcat server.

I believe it has some different procedures to install visualvm in linux server.

Thanks & Regards,
Pravin Kumar.

No, the installation process is the same, regardless of what OS you are running under.

The only difference is the command that you use to start it and the difference is only in the syntax of the start command's path, since Windows uses backslashes instead of "real" slashes.

Do you really need to have it run on the server? For remote machines that may be the only viable option, but if the server runs on a local network it may be feasible to open up its JMX ports so that you can run VisualVM on your desktop/laptop. You can also secure the JMX ports with a password (which would be a good idea in any case).

Thank you so much TIM MOORES & TIM HOLLOWAY.

I working on installing a monitoring tool for JVM , when i googled it i came across so many tools.

I felt Visualvm and Jprofiller will be useful for me, Please suggest which one is the best.

I couldnt find out any good documentation for Jprofiler installation on linux server, kindly guide me on the installation guide.

Thanks & Regards,
Pravin Kumar
