JDK Mission Control 8 Released

JDK Mission Control (JMC) is best known as the dashboarding solution used to analyze the data collected by JDK Flight Recorder (JFR), the built-in profiling and event collection framework of the JDK. Binary releases for JMC 8 are now available for download via AdoptOpenJDK and Oracle. JMC 8 offers more insights into applications by introducing new graphs and heap dump analysis by default.

Built on top of the Eclipse IDE, JMC can be installed as standalone or as an Eclipse plugin. JMC is the successor of JRockit Mission Control, created by Appeal Virtual Machines before Oracle acquired the company in 2008. JMC is a (production) profiling and diagnostics tool and may also be used as a library for parsing and processing .jfr files.
