Java virtual machine monitoring tools

Hello Experts,

I am looking for a JVM tool that identifies hung SQL queries. I am using BOE4.1 SP6p2 with SQL2012 DB and need to monitor Jobserverchild processes when a thread is hung. This tool will help identify the exact SQL statement that is causing the process to hang.

Thanks!

When you say "hang" do you mean "take a long time?"  Or do you mean the query fails and that causes an error in the Java webapp so it hangs?

If we're just talking slow queries, generally that's much easier to resolve from the database side - because you can just look at the currently executing queries and you'll see the long running ones - esp if they are still running.

Is there a particular reason why you're trying to solve this from the JVM side?

Slow queries. The reports can run at any time(2am etc) so I may not catch the report in action.  

I'm a BOE Admin and trying to find the best tool to find the long executing queries and report it back to the report writer to fix.

OK then I'd suggest looking into those queries from the database side.  I don't specifically know how SQL server logs those, but seems like the profiler would be a place to start:
https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms187929(v=sql.105).aspx

Trying to find the problem query within the Java codebase will just be much harder, because the slowness will be within the database.  All you could see in the JVM is something like "thread-123" is waiting a long time to complete - which isn't terribly helpful.

Start from the database itself and work backwards.
