JConsole monitoring tool is shipped as part of Java Development Kit. It is located at <JDK_Home>\bin.
To configure JConsole with ColdFusion, we need to append below mentioned JVM flags to the “java.args” section in the “jvm.config” file:
In ColdFusion 10, “jvm.config” file is located at <cf_install_root>\<instance_name>\bin.
In ColdFusion 9, “jvm.config” file is located at <cf_install_root>\runtime\bin [Standalone installation] or <jrun_root>\bin [Multi-Server installation].
After appending these JVM flags, save changes and restart ColdFusion server.
Now, your ColdFusion server is configured to be accessed by JConsole utility to monitor the performance and resource consumption.
Launch the JConsole tool and mention : under Remote Process to start monitoring ColdFusion server. JConsole need not to run on the box where ColdFusion server is installed.
