checklist for 64-bit java on Linux

grep -l 'flags.*\<lm\>' /proc/cpuinfo && (getconf LONG_BIT | grep '64') && java -version
Let's you examine, for example, whether infrastructure folks really provisioned the correct setup. Java 64-bit checklist 1. check if hardware is 64-bit capable by looking for lm flag grep -l 'flags.*\<lm\>' /proc/cpuinfo 2. check if kernel is 64-bit getconf LONG_BIT | grep '64' 3. check if java is 64-bit (simply look for 64-bit in output - if present, then it is, if absent, then it is 32-bit) java -version
Sample Output
/proc/cpuinfo
64
java version "1.6.0_18"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_18-b07)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 16.0-b13, mixed mode)

  • Not so much handy by itself, but very nice in shell scripts. This makes you a handy ncurses based checklist. Much like terminal installers, just use the arrow keys and hit 'Space' to adjust the selections. Returns all selected tags as strings, with no newline at the end. So, your output will be something like: "one" "two" "three" "four" "etc" For those who prefer bash expansion over gratuitious typing: whiptail --checklist "Simple checkbox menu" 12 35 3 $(echo {one,two,three,four}" '' 0"} ) Things to note: The height must includes the outer border and padding: add 7 to however many items you want to show up at the same time. If the status is 1, it will be selected by default. anything else, will be deselected. Show Sample Output

  • Tail all logs that are opened by all java processes. This is helpful when you are on a new environment and you do not know where the logs are located. Instead of java you can put any process name. This command does work only for Linux. The list of all log files opened by java process: sudo ls -l $(eval echo "/proc/{$(echo $(pgrep java)|sed 's/ /,/')}/fd/")|grep log|sed 's/[^/]* //g'

    sudo ls -l $(eval echo "/proc/{$(echo $(pgrep java)|sed 's/ /,/')}/fd/")|grep log|sed 's/[^/]* //g'|xargs -r tail -f
