VisualVM redefinition failed with error 62


Redefinition failed with error 62 
Check JVMTI documentation for this error code.

This occurs when you try to profile a Java application through JVisualVM. This is a bug. A workaround can be found here.

The application you want to profile must be launched with the flag:


Example for regular jar:

java -Xverify:none -jar your_app.jar

An example for Spring Boot Yarn is below. The application.yml file for AppMaster:

          - -Xverify:none

After that, profiling the application through VisualVM will work properly.
