The tc Runtime automatically detects whether a thread deadlock occurs in a tc Runtime instance or an application deployed to the instance.

By default, a vCenter Hyperic alert is triggered if the Deadlocks Detected metric exceeds 0. vCenter Hyperic checks the metric every two minutes to determine whether the condition is met. vCenter Hyperic applies this alert to all auto-discovered tc Runtime instances and enables it by default. This alert is associated with the tc Runtime instance itself.
