[daemon] using procrun on windows to run jstatd

Elliot Metsger
Hi all,

Has anyone been able to use procrun to successfully install jstatd (a
JVM monitoring tool distributed with Java 1.5:
http://java.sun.com/performance/jvmstat/) as a Windows service?

We want to use jstatd to monitor our Tomcat 5.5.9 server running on Sun
Java 5.

I'm using the tomcat5.exe binary that shipped with Tomcat, which seems
to be a pre-build procrun.exe, in order to avoid building from source on
a Windows box.

My //IS// command looks like:
D:\tomcat\bin\tomcat5.exe //IS//JstatdService2
--Jvm="%JAVA_HOME%jre\bin\server\jvm.dll" --Description="Java Monitoring
Process.  See http://java.sun.com/performance/jvmstat/"
--DisplayName="JVM Monitoring Service" --User=administrator
--Password=foo --JvmOptions="-Djava.security.policy=C:\Documents and
--Install="D:\tomcat\bin\tomcat5.exe" --StartMode="jvm"
--LogPath="C:\Documents and Settings\emetsge1"
--LogPrefix="jstatd_service" --LogLevel=DEBUG --StdOutput="C:\Documents
and Settings\emetsge1\jstatd_service_stdout" --StdError="C:\Documents
and Settings\emetsge1\jstatd_service_stderr"

I can get the service to start by running tomcat5 //TS//JstatdService2
but then it quits with no error message.  sc query jstatdservice2
doesn't give me any clues.  The exit code is 0.

I can run jstatd manually on the command line using java, so I am pretty
sure my command line args etc are correct.  I've attempted to switch the
StartMode to java, and to try different JvmOptions (e.g. -Xrs) but no
luck.  I've added the '-verbose' flag as a jvm opton but the output
doesn't provide any clues, other than the service successfully starts up.

It appears the service successfully starts, then just quits.

Any ideas?  Should I compile procrun from source?  Or would I be better
off asking the jstatd/jvmstat folks at Sun?

Thanks for any help,
