A Command Reference

This appendix serves as a basic reference to the commands you can use with Java Flight Recorder. It contains the following sections:

A.1 Command-Line Options

When you launch your Java application with the java command, you can specify options to enable Java Flight Recorder, configure its settings, and start a recording. The following command-line options are specific to Java Flight Recorder:

  • -XX:+|-FlightRecorder

  • -XX:FlightRecorderOptions

  • -XX:StartFlightRecording

These command-line options are available only in the commercial license of the JDK. To use them, you have to also specify the -XX:+UnlockCommercialFeatures option.

For more information about these options, see Java Command Line Reference at (Solaris, Linux) (Windows)


You should use -XX options only if you have a thorough understanding of your system. If you use these commands improperly, you might affect the stability or performance of your system. -XX options are experimantal, and they are subject to change at any time.

A.2 Diagnostic Command Reference

This is a description of the diagnostic commands available to control Java Flight Recorder and the parameters available for each command. This information is also available by running the jcmd command with the process identifier specified, followed by the help parameter and the commad name. For example, to get help information for the JFR.start command on a running JVM process with the identifier 5361, run the following:
