So, you’re having a bad day. Mission Control isn’t behaving the way it is supposed to, and you would really like it to be a bit more verbose about what it is doing. These are things you can try to make Mission Control a bit more talkative:
- Start Mission Control in debug mode, by adding the –debug flag. This will change the default java.util logging settings to also output FINE information. A note of caution – this may make various subsystems, such as chart rendering, to output debugging information in the GUI too.
- If FINE is not enough, you can specify your own logging properties file in the preferences, directly under the Mission Control preference node. You can use the logging_debug.properties file in the com.jrockit.mc.rcp.application plugin as a starting point.
- Enable logging of Eclipse RCP related issues to the console, by specifying the –consoleLog flag.
- On windows, the jrmc launcher is derived from the javaw launcer – you will need to redirect stderr like this: 2>&1.
