Before installing BMC Remedy Mid Tier, complete the following steps:

jvisualvm), run tomcat8w.exe from <<Installation directory>>\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat8.0\bin and add the following Java Management Extension (JMX) options to the
javacommand. Enabling JVM helps in monitoring the JVM of mid tier through JVisualVM tool. You can monitor or dump threads if mid tier does not respond, monitor the heap size and usage, garbage collection activity, and so on.
-Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.port=<portNumber> -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.ssl=false -Dcom.sun.management.jmxremote.authenticate=false
(Optional) To enable Java to automatically generate Java heap dumps for troubleshooting purposes, add the following parameter to the Java options file. Inspecting the heap dumps helps in monitoring the out of the memory (OOM) errors.
