Update company size to: Tools, Fixes, and More. A couple of weeks ago I found myself in a position which is well known to any professional Java developer: Tell us what you think. Please take a moment to review and update.

JProbe 8.0: The Java code, memory, and coverage profiler is back

Now that we have found a problem area in a specific method, we will run through the use case again to collect data at the line level so that we can determine exactly which lines of code are responsible for the problem.

I don’t believe profiling is an art which should be left to dedicated performance teams my former employer took that approachmostly because it is the combination of knowing the code and mastering the profiling technique which yields the best results.

With this new capability, developers have the jprkbe to conduct memory analysis and code coverage seamlessly in the Eclipse Java IDE.

TPTP comes with a complex setup process.

See the “Memory Released” column of the highlighted line in Figure 3. We bring up the source code in the Source Viewer window and JProbe Profiler takes us directly to the most time consuming section of the code in assignData see Figure The JProbe Suite contains four tools to help you create efficient and programmatically correct applications:.


For more information, visit www. Java Performance Tuning, 2nd ed. JProbe Profiler helps you diagnose, repair, and validate code changes for Java efficiency tytorial related to inefficient algorithms. Again, we open the snapshot file and see that the application is spending the most time in assignData exclusive of the methods that assignData calls. If you do not see your application server in the drop down list, Quest provides a J2EE Application Server Integration Portal that contains information and modules for integration with additional application servers.

JProbe The Java code, memory, and coverage profiler is back

At this point in our investigation we want to quantify the impact of all of our code changes on the performance of the application. Even if TPTP works on your platform, it is still behind the commercial tools. Update Company name to: We begin performing our use cases with the application in JProbe Memory Debugger viewing the heap usage data in real-time with snapshots taken for analysis outside of the executing application.

We have shown how the JProbe Memory Debugger and JProbe Profiler can quickly and easily help you pinpoint the memory and performance problems in your code and validate your code changes once they have been made. Method time is the time taken by the method excluding any calls to other methods.

I just launch JProfiler using my existing launch configuration and a couple of minutes later I have the results.

The JProbe Profiler (Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 9 Developer’s Guide)

Email me replies to any of my messages in this thread. In Figure 10, we quickly notice a hot spot indicated by the brightly colored red node in the call graph. JProbe Memory Debugger helps you improve jprrobe usage in your Java application by identifying loitering objects and excessively allocated objects.


We see that we are now spending 0. In Eclipse, you use the “Profile” command, which uses the same “Launch Configurations” as the “Run” and “Debug” commands.

Threshold values are configured in the LaunchPad. In jprbe, the automation features in JProbe remove the manual process of capturing performance snapshots which can be error prone and if a project is too large, can be inconvenient to perform on a regular jlrobe. When analyzing my execution time, the most helpful tool was the “Hot Spots” view:.

Should you buy a profiler? This feature allows us to view the object reference graph and play? Once you select an option you’ll see some explanation in the dialog itself, so there’s no need to start looking for documentation.

The Application Server Integration can then be saved to a globally accessible directory for use by other developers. What I like most about this window is the two lower bars that give you an estimate on how intensive this profiling session is going to be in terms of memory and CPU usage. It is my opinion that every professional developer should know how to profile code. JProbe Profiler and JProbe Memory Debugger allow you to analyze application performance in two session types, local session monitoring see Figure 1-A and remote session monitoring see Figure 1-B.
