Have you read our article about what Flare is? If you haven’t, take a look quick before getting started!
At this time Flare is unsupported on Windows.
Flare requires just two flags be added to your startup script:
This will allow the async-profiler to properly profile your server.
To use the profiler, you’ll first need to install the JDK debug symbols. This is different depending on the distro and version of Java you’re using.
If you’re using Oracle’s JDK, the debug symbols are included in the package and you can skip this section.
If you’re using Ubuntu or Debian, each
openjdk-<version> package has a matching
The command will look something like this:
sudo apt install openjdk-<version>-dbg
yum install java-<version>-openjdk-devel-debug
Using Flare currently requires an access token tied to a subscribed Patreon account. To get your access token, first subscribe to Patreon then go to https://auth.airplane.gg to get your access token.
(The authentication service can take up to 5 minutes to recognize your token, if it takes longer then please open a ticket in #support on the Discrd.)
airplane.air you’ll find the following option:
# Options for connecting to Airplane's online utilities [web-services] token = "<your access token>"
Once you put in your access token, you’ll have full access to Flare!
The amount of unique IPs you can use Flare on is determined by your tier on Patreon. The basic math is 1 + 1 per $5.
To use Flare in its simplest mode, all you have to do is run the Flare command:
/flare -> Flare has been started: https://flare.airplane.gg/mylink
Flare will then run for 15 minutes, however if you’d like to end it early you can just run
/flare once again.
