JConsole (which is provided with the installed JDK) can be a great resource for monitoring Artifactory's resource utilization. JConsole’s overview tab shows CPU/memory utilization, and how many threads are active.
To connect JConsole to the Artifactory JVM, follow these instructions:
1] In the $ARTIFACTORY_HOME/bin folder, open the artifactory.default file
In JAVA_OPTIONS, add the following property:
export JAVA_OPTIONS="$JAVA_OPTIONS -Djruby.compile.invokedynamic=false -Dfile.encoding=UTF8 -Dartdist=zip -Dorg.apache.tomcat.util.buf.UDecoder.ALLOW_ENCODED_SLASH=true"
2] Restart Artifactory for the changes to take effect.
3] The JConsole utility is located in the $JAVA_HOME/bin folder. In Artifactory 7.X this is the /opt/jfrog/artifactory/app/third-party/java/bin folder.
In the $JAVA_HOME location, you’ll need to run the following command:
One way to find the Artifactory PID is by running a "ps -ef" command and searching for "artifactory":
ps -ef | grep artifactory
Another way is to run JConsole without a PID (./jconsole). On the JConsole UI, choose the Artifactory process from the Local Process list:
