In the systems being developed here, everything is coded in Java. There
are about 100 Java applications each running its own virtual machine.
I'm supposed to work with test and performance analysis of these systems
and I'm using tools that log system behaviour on process level.
The problem is that all I see is 100 processes named Java with some
small variations in command line parameters.
Is there a safe way to alter the process names either at startup or at
What could be the consequences of doing such a thing ?
