jvmtop is a lightweight, open-source console monitoring tool

jvmtop is a lightweight console-only application to monitor all accessible, running JVMs on a machine. It's like top but is able to provide jvm internals (e.g. memory information) of running JVMs / java processes at the command-line.

It seems to be a relativly new open-source project - however, it looks promising. It can also drill down cpu-usage to the thread-level, showing you the most cpu-intensive threads in a live view:
