Manually Installing the FusionReactor Java Agent

It's important to note the folder structure of: <DIRECTORY-PATH>/fusionreactor/instance/<INSTANCE-NAME>/fusionreactor.jar is adhered to. It's therefore recommended you use the following directory paths:

  • Linux<DIRECTORY-PATH>/fusionreactor/instance/<INSTANCE-NAME> 

    • Example: /opt/fusionreactor/instance/Tomcat8/fusionreactor.jar

  • Windows<DIRECTORY-PATH>\fusionreactor\instance\<INSTANCE-NAME> 

    • Example: C:\FusionReactor\instance\Tomcat8\fusionreactor.jar

  1. Create a directory called with the name of the instance under the /fusionreactor/instance/ directory

  2. Copy the fusionreactor.jar from fusionreactor/etc (or download it from the FusionReactor Website) into the directory

  3. Add the FusionReactor path to your JVM Startup Arguments for your server and then start/restart your application server

    1. Standard JVM argument paths:

      Linux Example:   "-javaagent:/<DIRECTORY-PATH>/fusionreactor/instance/<INSTANCE-NAME>/fusionreactor.jar=address=<PORT>"
      Windows Example:  -javaagent:<DIRECTORY-PATH>\FusionReactor\instance\<INSTANCE-NAME>\fusionreactor.jar=address=<PORT>
    2. Example paths can be seen below:

      Linux Example:   "-javaagent:/opt/fusionreactor/instance/Tomcat8/fusionreactor.jar=address=8088"
      Windows Example: -javaagent:C:\FusionReactor\instance\Tomcat8\fusionreactor.jar=address=8088
  4. Enter http://localhost:8088 in your web browser and log into FusionReactor

When you start your application server we recommend that you watch its standard-out and standard-error logs. If anything is misconfigured, you should be able to start debugging the problem from the output presented there.
