Attaching the OverOps Agent to a JVM Running Java 10 or 11

When attaching an OverOps Agent to a JVM that is running Java 10 or 11 or any IBM java versions, follow these guidelines:

  1. Turn off Class Sharing: This can be done using the following flags:
    for IBM Java
    ‑Xshareclasses:none
    for HotSpot
    -Xshare:off -XX:-UseTypeSpeculation

  2. Increase ReservedCodeCache to at least 512mb by adding the following flag
    -XX:ReservedCodeCacheSize=512m

  3. The Agent should appear last in the VM arguments list before specifying the main class or jar.

  4. When adding/removing 3rd party packages, the Agent should be restarted.

Additionally, if you wish to upgrade your own compiler to target Java 10/11, then you'll have to upgrade your Collector (SaaS) or Collector + backend (On-Premises) to support it.

Rootless Agent Installation Method (Linux only)

When Using the Rootless Agent Installation Method replace the
-agentlib:TakipiAgent JVM startup Argument
with
-agentpath:<TAKIPI_HOME>/lib/libTakipiAgent.so JVM startup Argument

The OverOps agent is already included within the java build pack. To get the latest agent, you should update the java build pack (requires Admin rights):

1.Update the java-buildpack
cf update-buildpack java-buildpack-offline

2.Create a User-provided service
Connecting to a remote collector we are providing the remote collector host and remote collector port (6060 is default).
cf cups takipi -p '{"collector_host":"<collector-host-domain-name-here>","collector_port":"6060"}'

3.Attach the Micro Agent to your JVM (The application you want to monitor)
Bind the application service to the OverOps agent:

cf bind-service APP_NAME takipi
cf restage APP_NAME

4.Update system parameters with application and deployment names

cf set-env my-application JAVA_OPTS '-Dtakipi.deployment.name=<version-name-here>'
cf set-env my-application JAVA_OPTS '-Dtakipi.name=<app-name-here>'

or combined

cf set-env my-application JAVA_OPTS '-Dtakipi.name=<app-name-here> -Dtakipi.deployment.name=<version-name-here>'

5.Test your Installation
