QCON NYC and SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Azul Systems (Azul), the award-winning leader in Java runtime solutions, today announced the general availability of Zulu Mission Control v7.0. Based on the OpenJDK Mission Control project, Zulu Mission Control is a powerful Java performance management and application profiling tool that works with Azul’s Zing and Zulu JDKs/JVMs and supports both Java SE 8 and 11. Zulu Mission Control is free to use, and may be downloaded from www.azul.com/products/zulu-mission-control.
Zulu Mission Control Overview
Zulu Mission Control is a tested, certified build of the OpenJDK Mission Control project. Originally developed by Oracle, the software was open sourced by Oracle as part of OpenJDK 11. Azul has subsequently backported Zulu Mission Control to be compatible with both its Zing and Zulu Java runtimes that conform to both the Java SE 8 & 11 standards.
Zulu Mission Control features and benefits are highlighted below:

|Low performance impact during monitoring and data collection||Identification of problems that might be masked by other profiling tools that have high performance overhead|
|Support for both Java SE 8 and 11||Supports the broadest range of Java deployments|
|Supports Azul’s Zing and Zulu JDKs/JVMs||Centralized monitoring and profiling, even in mixed JVM environments|
|Modern, intuitive user interface||Easy to get started and easy for development and QA teams to become productive quickly|
|Commercial Support included with Zulu Enterprise and Zing subscriptions||No additional costs for access to bug fixes and security updates for Zulu Mission Control|
|Runs on Windows, Linux, and macOS-based desktops||Supports all desktops and laptops commonly used by developers/DevOps|
Flight Recorder and Zulu Mission Control
Flight Recorder is a very low-overhead way of collecting and storing performance and profiling data from Java runtimes during the execution of a Java application. Zulu Mission Control uses the information from JDKs/JVMs which incorporate the Flight Recorder technology to monitor live JVMs, as well as perform detailed analysis and historical playback of applications using previously generated data logs. Flight Recorder was open sourced by Oracle as part of the OpenJDK 11 project. Azul has backported Flight Recorder to support Java 8 and incorporated into its Zing, Zulu Enterprise, and Zulu Embedded offerings.
“Zulu Mission Control is a 100% open source, best-in-breed profiling and monitoring tool which helps Java developers and DevOps teams to track, monitor, and debug Java-based applications,” said Scott Sellers, Azul Systems president and CEO. “We’re excited to be bringing this powerful and flexible tool to the Java Community, and we look forward to extending its capabilities in cooperation with the OpenJDK project.”
Commercial support for Zulu Mission Control is included at no additional charge with all Zing and Zulu Enterprise subscriptions.
