QRadar: How to determine the Java installed type and version on a QRadar installed server

How To


This article explains how to determine the Java installed type and version on a QRadar installed server. QRadar installs IBM Java as part of the server installation. The version of IBM Java changes depends on the QRadar version.


Determine the Java installed type and version on a QRadar installed server.


To determine or confirm the version installed on a QRadar server, perform the following steps:

  1. Log in to the QRadar console.
  2. Run the following command.
    java -version
    For example, on a 7.5.0 UP4 QRadar console, the command displays the following response:
    java -version
    java version "1.8.0_341"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build - pxa6480sr7fp15-20220818_01(SR7 FP15))
    IBM J9 VM (build 2.9, JRE 1.8.0 Linux amd64-64-Bit Compressed References 20220817_34472 (JIT enabled, AOT enabled)
    OpenJ9 - f385858
    OMR - a79eb1a
    IBM - 7175f82)
    JCL - 20220727_01 based on Oracle jdk8u341-b10

    After you run the command on the command line, the output displays the java installed type and version.
