Getting the JVM heap consumption using JMX code in JBoss EAP 7

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Not able to read heap consumption on application server using a custom JMX code. I am trying to make JMX code read and print current heap memory usage on our application servers. But I can not see which property in the MBeans has this. I am able to read the heap memory stats from Domain controller though. The following code works for Domain controller but not for querying application servers.

     JMXConnector jmxConnector = JMXConnectorFactory.connect(serviceURL, map);
     MBeanServerConnection connection = jmxConnector.getMBeanServerConnection();
     ObjectName objectName = ObjectName.getInstance(",core-service=platform-mbean,type=memory");
     String attributeName = "heapMemoryUsage";
     Object result = connection.getAttribute(objectName, attributeName);
     System.out.println(attributeName +"="+ result);
  • Similarly what option should I use to query "heap consumption of each JVM", based on my example to check the server state:

     ObjectName objectName = ObjectName.getInstance("");
     String attributeName = "serverState";
     Object result = connection.getAttribute(objectName, attributeName);
