This is a bug. I can confirm that the same happens with Tomcat 6.0.26.

This problem is specific to Tomcat and jdk 1.6.0_23. All other applications I
have tried are reported to jps and jvisualvm without problems. It also works
for Tomcat and jdk 1.6.0_22. Please note that a new JVM version 19.0 was
introduced in 1.6.0_23.

I have tracked down the problem to the fact that both jps and jvisualvm detect
running JVMs by looking into /tmp/hsperfdata_$USER directory, which is created
automatically by all SUN JVMs since JDK 1.4.0_02.  

For some unknown reason the JVM running Tomcat does not create the files in the
/tmp/hsperfdata_$USER directory. Even using -XX:+UsePerfData doesn not help.

This bug prevents monitoring production servers running Tomcat with jvisualvm.
