TS-6000 : Improving Application Performance with Monitoring and Profiling Tools

Posted by gsporar on May 28, 2008 at 2:30 PM PDT

Last year I made a change that I really enjoyed: I did not
blog during JavaOne. The event alone is enough of an exercise
in endurance, so I decided to drop the blogging in favor
of additional sleep. :-)

I did a
technical session
this year with Jaroslav Bachorík (who sometimes blogs
here). Our goal was
to do an overview of some of the tools available for tracking down
performance and memory problems in Java applications. So the talk was
broad, not deep - we covered 12 different tools and did demos of 3
of those.

It seemed to be well received, based on initial reviews. The room holds
about 800 and was packed,
so we did the session a second time late on Friday afternoon (not as large
a crowd the second time, of course).

The slides are available
here.
There are several links to online resources, which I have reproduced
below.
