Definitions: <option> An option reported by the -options option <vmid> Virtual Machine Identifier. A vmid takes the following form: <lvmid>[@<hostname>[:<port>]] Where <lvmid> is the local vm identifier for the target Java virtual machine, typically a process id; <hostname> is the name of the host running the target Java virtual machine; and <port> is the port number for the rmiregistry on the target host. See the jvmstat documentation for a more complete description of the Virtual Machine Identifier. <lines> Number of samples between header lines. <interval> Sampling interval. The following forms are allowed: <n>["ms"|"s"] Where <n> is an integer and the suffix specifies the units as milliseconds("ms") or seconds("s"). The default units are "ms". <count> Number of samples to take before terminating. -J<flag> Pass <flag> directly to the runtime system.
root@wujianjun-linux ~]# jmap --help Usage: jmap [option] <pid> (to connect to running process) jmap [option] <executable <core> (to connect to a core file) jmap [option] [server_id@]<remote server IP or hostname> (to connect to remote debug server)
where <option> is one of: <none> to print same info as Solaris pmap -heap to print java heap summary -histo[:live] to print histogram of java object heap; if the "live" suboption is specified, only count live objects -permstat to print permanent generation statistics -finalizerinfo to print information on objects awaiting finalization -dump:<dump-options> to dump java heap in hprof binary format dump-options: live dump only live objects; if not specified, all objects in the heap are dumped. format=b binary format file=<file> dump heap to <file> Example: jmap -dump:live,format=b,file=heap.bin <pid> -F force. Use with -dump:<dump-options> <pid> or -histo to force a heap dump or histogram when <pid> does not respond. The "live" suboption is not supported in this mode. -h | -help to print this help message -J<flag> to pass <flag> directly to the runtime system
