Enable verbose garbage collection on all servers in cluster using jacl

Today I needed to enable verbose garbage collections on all production servers to troubleshoot a potential memory leak.

As we have 30 application servers in our clusters and using the web interface would require multiple clicks and page load times, I created a little script to do this.

This can of course be altered to change other parameters, and ideally being put in a function so it can be called using the clustername and cellname as parameters.

set server [$AdminConfig getid /Server:$serverName/]
#set server [$AdminConfig getid /Cell:$cellName/Node:$nodeName/Server:$serverName/]

puts "$server"
set jvm [$AdminConfig list JavaVirtualMachine $server]
$AdminConfig modify $jvm {{verboseModeGarbageCollection true}}

puts "GarbageCollection Enabled: [$AdminConfig showAttribute $jvm verboseModeGarbageCollection]"

$AdminConfig save
