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

❗️

Source Attach required!

To be able to see the source in the ARC screen Source Attach is required!

SBT/Scala commands

You can add TakipiAgents to your Scala application by passing a JVM argument to scala/sbt with a "-D" prefix:
scala -D-agentlib:TakipiAgent
sbt -D-agentlib:TakipiAgent

or respectively

scala -D-agentpath:<TAKIPI_HOME>/lib/libTakipiAgent.dll
sbt -D-agentpath:<TAKIPI_HOME>/lib/libTakipiAgent.dll

Add TakipiAgents to your Scala application by setting JAVA_OPTS environment variable before starting Scala:

export JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -agentlib:TakipiAgent"
set JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% -agentlib:TakipiAgent

🚧

In some sbt versions the environment variable is SBT_OPTS and not JAVA_OPTS.

Maven

In the terminal/command line, add -agentlib:TakipiAgent to the MAVEN_OPTS environment variable:

export MAVEN_OPTS="$MAVEN_OPTS -agentlib:TakipiAgent"
set MAVEN_OPTS=%MAVEN_OPTS% -agentlib:TakipiAgent
