This documentation specifies the public API for controlling offline profiling, accessing the JProfiler MBean, writing embedded probes and injected probes as well. This documentation is intended to be read in sequence, with later help topics building on messages prefixed with JProfiler> so you know that profiling is active. The platform is contained in $JPROFILER_HOME/bin/, documentation can This API allows you to add functionality to JProfiler similar to the built-in.

Of course apps launching with large amounts of traffic need to be more proactive but generally my experience is organically growing sites can afford to detect performance problems in production and roll out improvements as part of continuous deployment.
Spring From the Trenches: This action is especially useful if you suspect a classloader-related memory leak. However, this kind of behavior is unprofessional and quite frankly, only idiots act like this because we have an easy way to ensure that our code is problem free: However, CPU data can be overwhelming in its level of detail and the way data is collected can make a huge difference in usability.
With the forward and back buttons in the tool bar you can move around in your selection history. When the “open session” dialog appears, you’re ready to go.
Tool Report: JProfiler
Thread states in the CPU profiling views Although I agree with him, I also think that is extremely easy to use this quote as an excuse for not doing our job. We have selected the Jclasslib class file browser as our application available from http: Contains the annotations for specifying which methods should be intercepted.
Problems related to threading are much more frequent than one might assume. Before we select the method for display, we reset the CPU data in JProfiler to eliminate the profiling information collected during startup of Jclasslib.
Multi-level HTTP request documebtation Besides the views presented above, there are many other views and features in JProfiler. It took me some time, but I was able to select the transaction size that solved the problem at least for the time being. The hot spot type contributed by an interceptor allows you to analyze payload from all call stacks grouped by the payload description:.
Donald Knuth once wrote that premature optimization is the root of all evil. Invariably, there are a lot of things you can adjust in an advanced profiler.
With the Windows version, you get a setup executable that installs JProfiler and launches it right away. A whole range of otherwise opaque problems can be solved when using JProfiler, such as increasing liveness in a multi-threaded application that uses too much locking.
Supported Platforms JProfiler supports profiling on the following platforms: Persist these changes to the database when the transaction was committed. Do you agree with me? While the “Hot spots view” cumulates times for all invocation paths, the “Invocation tree” is perfect for finding single bottlenecks by expanding the tree along the large percentage values.
That is why I prefer to avoid these situations or at least make this choice clear to our customer and hope for the best.
JProfiler API documentation
This is the inefficient action we want to look documentaion for our example. The top level entries are the most time consuming methods. JProfiler has been my trusted friend and ally for many years. Contains JProfiler’s controller MBean for offline profiling.
Collapsing recursions in the call tree I searched the slow method invocations and identified the culprit. After taking a heap snapshot, we go to the classes view and find that more than half a million objects and arrays are still alive on the heap – mostly for displaying the lines in the bytecode document!
The ant tasks bundled with JProfiler allow you to perform all command line operations from your build script. With the resulting class objects, you can directly go to the reference graph and search for a path to a garbage collector root to check why a class has not been garbage collected. As long as we are ready to rewrite problematic parts if there is no other way to fix them, we can documentagion course select this approach.
