      Description

      It seems not possible to create multiple instances of VisualVM: if you start the application a second time, the first instance is shown instead of opening a second instance. This is sometimes really annoying. For example, if you perform a time consuming analysis on a large heap dump, you can't do another analysis at the same time. In a multicore machine visual vm uses only one core for this, so it would easily be possible to work with multiple instances.

        It is possible to run multiple instances of VisualVM. Just use --userdir commandline argument. Run
        visualvm --help
        for more details about VisualVM options.
