      describes jcmd is an unsupported and Experimental tool. See (*1).

      Document Location
      =================
      "Experimental:" for jcmd should be removed and the description about jcmd
      should move to "Java Troubleshooting, Profiling, Monitoring and Management
      Tools" section.

      Monitoring Tools

      You can use the following tools to monitor JVM performance statistics. The
      tools described in this section are unsupported and experimental, and should
      be used with that in mind. They may not be available in future JDK versions.
