Jeyzer 3.0 coming soon
Jeyzer 3.0 is about to be released.
- Jeyzer will now become entirely open source
The Jeyzer Monitor license will not be required anymore starting from version 3.0.
Jeyzer release cycle will be biannual.
- Jeyzer in numbers :
Jeyzer now includes 85 technical shared profiles : from Apache Commons, MySQL, Log4j… to Hadoop, JBoss, Tomcat…
Online Analysis now performs 145 checks on your submitted runtime recordings.
And Jeyzer 3.0 will come up with 90 detection rules to use directly or customize.
Jeyzer 2.7 release
Jeyzer 2.7 is now available in the download section.
- NEW : Java 17 LTS support
Jeyzer is certified on Java 17. It includes The Jeyzer Analyzer, Jeyzer Recorder and Jeyzer Monitor.
Jeyzer therefore covers the incident analysis and monitoring of Java server applications running from Java 7 to Java 17 !!
- Maintenance release
The JZR report has been enhanced with minor improvements on the JVM flags, Session Details, Top Stacks and Process Card sheets.
It contains also bug fixes, including ones related to the JFR analysis.
Jeyzer 2.6 release
Jeyzer 2.6 is now available in the download section.
- NEW : Group sequence sheet
Your application is using a large set of active threads ? And this is painful to browse in a JZR report (even if Jeyzer already filters the inactive threads) ?
The JZR report provides you with a new view which groups the identical thread stacks to facilitate strongly the analysis.
1000 identical active threads will be typically displayed as 1 line in the JZR report !!
- NEW : Profile redirection
The Jeyzer Web Analyzer is detecting the right analysis profile to use, thanks to the new profile redirection feature.
For example, analyze any JFR or JZR recording of Active MQ : Jeyzer will scan it and select automatically the AMQ analysis profile.
That way, you get now transparently the best JZR report that suits to your application.
Note : the Jeyzer Online Analyzer is also supporting this great feature for a few standard master profiles (which include AMQ).
- Java Flight Recorder support : the Jeyzer Analyzer accepts now any zipped JFR recording file.
Jeyzer 2.5 release
Jeyzer 2.5 is now available in the download section.
- The Java Flight Recorder support is extended with the JVM flags analysis
and the date display in any time zone (opposed to JMC which does only UTC display)
- Time zone selection : JZR reports and outputs can now be aligned on any time zone
- JVM flags are now recorded , analyzed and subject to monitoring rules
Jeyzer 2.4 release
Jeyzer 2.4 is now available in the download section.
- A major step is reached with the Java Flight Recorder support : Jeyzer can now analyze JFR recordings and issue JZR reports out of it.
- The Jeyzer Recorder Agent integration has been extremely simplified : add the -javaagent[…] to your Java command line and it is ready !
Jeyzer and Java Flight Recorder
This led us to put the light on the 2 solutions and compare it in this article.
The study covers the black box recording and its analysis where the JDK Mission Control is also involved.
Jeyzer 2.3 release
It is a minor version, strongly recommended for any application running under Java 11.
Java Modules support
Java modules were introduced in Java 9.
The JZR report of your Java application exposes now its loaded modules and their module graph dependency.
Jeyzer Monitor introduces a new set of monitoring rules to check the Java module names and versions : still time to detect any snapshot or beta version of a Java module in your production application.
Those module checks are also available in the JZR report, along with the other detected events.
The Jeyzer Recorder agent is required to capture the Java module information from the target application.
Jeyzer 2.2 release
- Java modules full support
Jeyzer Recorder, Analyzer and Monitor are now covering as well the Java modules.
- The Jeyzer Publisher and Jeyzer Annotations libraries are now available as Java modules.
Those remain JDK 7 and 8 compatible.
Jeyzer 2.1 integrates with Jira Cloud.
Whenever a critical incident happens in your production or QA environment on a Java server, Jeyzer Monitor will automatically create a Jira ticket in the right project and attach all the details of the incident, including the JZR report.
If the Jira ticket exists for such incident, Jeyzer Monitor will update it with a comment and attach the JZR report if required.
The Jeyzer integration with Jira brings a better and strong reactivity.
Your teams will start processing the incident directly from Jira.
Also administrative work time is saved, removing those questions : which project? who is responsible?…
At last, benefit right away from the Jira notification mechanism : ticket could go directly to the right R&D team for example.
Jeyzer 2.1 release
- Jeyzer Monitor : JIRA Cloud integration through the JIRA REST v3 API
Jeyzer Monitor will create or update JIRA items for the important encountered monitoring events.
- Jeyzer profiles : monitoring rules do now provide an optional ticket field to store any ticket system reference (like a JIRA ticket id)
- Features demo theme is now aircraft related
