This option, used at the JITServer client JVMs, specifies the name of the AOT cache to be used at the JITServer server.


where <cache_name> specifies the name of the server-side AOT cache to be used.


A single JITServer instance can use multiple AOT caches, which are distinguished by their name. Clients that are running applications with significantly different execution profiles can, therefore, connect to the same JITServer instance. Specify this option at the client JVM. If you do not specify this option, the client uses a cache named default.

Note: You must specify -XX:+JITServerUseAOTCache, otherwise the -XX:JITServerAOTCacheName option is ignored.
