When you enable this option, the JITServer client crashes with an assert if it detects that a JITServer server is unavailable.


Setting Effect Default
-XX:+RequireJITServer Enable
-XX:-RequireJITServer Disable yes


This option is for debugging purposes only.

When this option is disabled, a server crash forces the client to perform compilations locally. You might want to enable this option if you are running a test suite with JITServer enabled, so that a test fails if the server crashes, instead of switching to local compilations and hiding the failure.
