Get jvm heap params of remote server in weblogic domain (WLST)

By | March 29, 2019
  • Given weblogic domain containing admin and manage servers.
  • We would like to get JVM parameters of remote Admin or manager server.
    • We will get remote attributes of JVM like:
      • Java version of remote server.
      • Max heap storage.
      • Free heap space in percentage.
      • JVM uptime.
  • We would perform following steps to get JVM diagnostic parameters  (WLST).
    • Connect to admin server using t3 protocol.
    • Get list of all servers active servers in current domain.
    • Fetch JVM attributes of remote servers using JVMRuntimeMBean.
    • Disconnect from admin server
