Where to Install ISA and MDD for Java - J2EE Agent
The following section describes two common configurations:
- Install ISA & MDD for Java on a standalone server that is not running an application server. After the heap dump has been collected on the application server, it must be transferred to the MDD for Java server for post-processing.
This configuration is recommended for production environments where you do not want the post-processing of the dump to impact the performance of the application server.
- Install ISA and MDD for Java on each application server host computer, so that you can analyze the heap dump locally without having to transfer it.
This configuration may be suitable for a development or test environment where the overhead of analyzing the heap dump is not a concern.
The decision on where to install may also be influenced by the platforms supported by ISA.
