Description Tomas Hurka 2009-12-17 03:59:12 UTC
See VisualVM issue #345 ( for more details.
Comment 1 Tomas Hurka 2009-12-21 07:48:52 UTC
The problem is caused by classes, which are (at the time of attaching) loaded but not linked. Such classes already posted ClassFileLoadHook and RetransformClasses cannot be used to obtain their bytecode and therefor they are not present in classbyte cache. The fix is to change the code to allow to cache such classes in ProfilerInterface.classLoadHook() method.

Fixed in profiler-main together with 178792
