Analyzing WLS

A very (old) common question is how to analyze (stuck) WLS.

The first we need to do here is to take Heap and Thread Dumps.

Take several Thread dump and one heap dump (although the last one has an embedded thread dump), this will help to find out issues, OOM, connection leaks, recurrent garbage collector, etc.

jmap -dump:format=b,file=~/tmp/heap.hprof <pid>

kill -3 <pid>
   jstack -l <PID>

Other important information would be to retrieve PermGen stats:

$ jmap 28705 -permstat
