The JProbe Suite of tools with its developer-oriented tutoriap like filtering, visual indicators to various problems, detailed performance and memory metrics, source code browsing, and snapshot differencing helps even seasoned Java developers to quickly resolve performance and memory issues in their applications.
As we monitor the heap usage graph, we switch to the Garbage Monitor tab to determine if there are any methods that excessively allocate temporary objects. We continue our performance investigation of the stock price charting servlet by working with the tuttorial in JProbe Profiler.
Now that we tutotial made a performance gain in a specific method, what does that mean to the end user in terms of the performance of the application when performing this use case? This article provides an overview of the JProbe Suite and will show how JProbe Memory Debugger and JProbe Profiler can be used to solve two real-world Java application efficiency problems, highlighting some of the new features in version 5.
JProbe The Java code, memory, and coverage profiler is back
This also highlights an opportunity for us to investigate how our code interacts with the third-party component. Some examples of inefficient algorithms include methods that exhibit one or more of the following behaviors: JProfiler is not the prettiest tool you can find.
Upon initial inspection of the Call Graph window, the assignData method is no longer displayed as a hot spot see Figure The other primary enhancement is improved usability through a refreshed UI for an enhanced look and feel and a more intuitive workflow.
Now that we have a snapshot file, we review the application? The Method Detail Window shows assignData taking a cumulative time of 4, ms, and a method time of 4, ms.
For each method you can expand the callers and methods being invoked. As we load the two snapshots and take the difference, we see that we made a The tool collects a small amount of information including the IDE to integrate with and specific configuration information for the IDE selected. TPTP comes with a complex setup process. We select the Finish Use Case button to capture a snapshot of the data jorobe this use case. The JProbe Analysis engine collects data, within the context of a session, on your stand-alone Java application or Application Server-based application.
And to fully make use of JProbe inside Eclipse, Quest will be shortly releasing a white paper describing how to exploit JProbe’s automation features to integrate with Eclipse’s Ant support. We want to implement the change and verify that the performance has improved. Update Company name to: Subscribe to our architect newsletter?

We profile the application again while performing the use case to request a stock chart for several different stocks and we capture another snapshot of our application?
Upon further inspection of the call graph, we realize that the most expensive method call, in terms of how much time is spent executing the method excluding time spent in methods that it calls Method Timeis in JCServerChart. The problem seems to be repetitive calls in a tight kprobe that assigns data to the charting control. We perform the same use case and capture a snapshot of the session data.
A simple example would be a method that allocates a new temporary object during each iteration of a loop, even though the object is never reused and is no longer required when the loop terminates.
It is my opinion that every professional developer should know how to profile code. If your program creates an excessive number of objects, the Java heap will become larger, and garbage collection will take longer because there are more objects to evaluate.
Auto-Map Objects 80 Percent Faster. I even tried it on Windows, as well and it works exactly the same. We log in and request four stock charts from our favorites and log out.
JProfiler: Your Java Code Could be Running Faster in Under Two Hours
Subscribe to our newsletter? The Instance Detail View allows you to view object allocation information such as the size of the object, creation time, the number of referrers, and the number of references.
Java Performance Tuning, 2nd ed. Not having to jump out of your IDE and open up a separate console to perform mprobe unit tests can provide a boost in productivity and efficiency. At this point, you’ll be transferred to JProfiler to start the profiling session.
JProbe 8.0: The Java code, memory, and coverage profiler is back
Java Performance Training Courses. So if your program will never use an object again, but you fail to remove the reference to the object, the object will remain, or loiter, in memory indefinitely. Additionally, JProbe Profiler and JProbe Memory Debugger have a unique snapshot-differencing feature that allows you to compare the performance impacts of code changes on your applications and the use of system resources such as processor and memory. If you do not see your application server in the drop down list, Quest provides a J2EE Application Server Integration Portal that contains jprobw and modules for integration with additional application servers.
JProbe Memory Debugger is a highly use case-oriented tool.

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. We can also use the Snapshot Difference Window to show us that the total performance gain that is visible to the end user is 4, ms The Application Server Integration can tutorrial be saved to a globally accessible directory for use by other developers.
While in the LaunchPad, we select the pre-configured Application Server we are using and what classes we would like to analyze.
