You can collect Health Center data for offline
analysis (without the Graphical User Interface) using the Headless mode. The
headless mode is typically useful for monitoring applications behind firewalls.
To enable Headless mode, users should specify the headless option in
healthcenter.properties file. The agent starts collecting data immediately. When the application terminates, the agent creates a file called healthcenter.hcd and will be written to the current working directory if directory is not specified explicitly.
To enable headless mode:
- Open the file healthcenter.properties for editing.
- Set the option com.ibm.java.diagnostics.healthcenter.data.collection.level=headless
