JAVAMELODY plugin 1.55.0 and 1.56.0 not working with JIRA 6.4.5


       I installed the plugin as per and also added a different directory parameter    but the http://jira/monitoring page shows non-human readable data. The application was restarted after the install. I did not try other versions with JIRA 6.4.5 but i assume the same problem would arise. My production server JIRA 6.2.4 uses melody 1.55.0 and do not see any problem in there. Kindly let me know suggestions to fix this problem.

Many Thanks,

Another user has said that this non-human readable data is in fact gzip data.

This user then said that setting the option to not use GZIP compression in the JIRA UI is a workaround and has resolved the issue.


This shows that when javamelody uses gzip compression and if JIRA also uses gzip compression, then there is a bug.

If gzip compression is definitely enabled by default in JIRA 6.4.5 and later, javamelody can disable its own gzip compression in the plugin for all JIRA, Confluence and Bamboo (there is a system property javamelody.gzip-compression-disabled=true for that).

Hello Emeric,

           Thanks a zillion for your comment and suggestion! Adding -Djavamelody.gzip-compression-disabled=true absolutely solved the problem! You're my savior!


Many Thanks,

Kishore Srinivasan
