The following screen shots illustrates some of the changes:. Subscribe to our architect newsletter?

It also promotes the adoption of performance testing best practices resulting in faster mean time to resolution. Furthermore, JProbe’s automation capabilities the ability to control all aspects of JProbe from an Ant build script provide a pjrobe to facilitate “continuous performance testing”, which is an extension to jprobd development and continuous integration that provides support for automatically discovering and profiling unit test cases.

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. This action will also request a garbage collection and capture the snapshot data for this use case.

Even if TPTP works on your platform, it is still behind the commercial tools. Upon initial inspection of the Call Graph window, the assignData method is no longer displayed as a hot spot see Figure JProbe helps developers to understand what?

Tool Report: JProbe

As it turns out, the StockChartDataSource class seems to be a problem area again. 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 log in and request four stock charts from our favorites and log out. Some options include filtering packages, classes, or methods and whether we want session data at the method, or line level. So we can see that the vast majority of time spent in assignData is within the method, and not as a consequence of calls to any other methods. The use case that we are testing against in this example is the rendering of multiple stock charts to an end user, one at a time.

JProfiler is not the prettiest tool you can find.

Most of them were buggy, some eventually worked but did not produce enough information or produced too much information, which is just as bad. JProbe Memory Debugger helps you eliminate memory leaks and improve application efficiency by improving memory usage and reducing overhead related to excessive garbage collection.

A closer inspection reveals that a re-factoring of this method should be more efficient. I searched for some other free tools.

Jprobbe in the LaunchPad, we select the pre-configured Application Server we are using and what classes we would like to analyze. Additionally, while working with JProbe Memory Debugger in real-time, you can be alerted if object counts exceed a user-definable threshold at the end of a use case.

Integrating with popular Application Servers is a simple task with JProbe? To continue our investigation, we select the Start Use Case button and select stock charts that we previously stored as our favorites.

As we specify our classes in the Filter Allocating Methods combo box, we come across the assignData method of the StockChartDataSource class that seems to be working with objects inefficiently see Figure 3.


Join a community of oversenior developers. We want to implement the change and verify that the performance has improved.

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

Auto-Map Objects 80 Percent Faster. I don’t need any special preparation or setup: Get the most out of the InfoQ experience.

Most garbage collection investigation is performed while working with JProbe Memory Debugger in real-time. We will compare the snapshot that was run against our new code with the snapshot we ran against the code with the loitering object.

Method time is the time taken by the method excluding any calls to other methods. Provides all the information you will desire with extensive views and predefined filters to make sure you’ll get just the information you need. The profiling interface provides the hooks that the JProbe Jprobee Engine needs to jprobs data.

See our privacy notice for details. Now that we have 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? Just to be clear: Java Performance Training Courses. Cumulative Time is the total amount of time spent executing the method, including time spent in its sub-tree.

But there’s so much more behind being registered.

You will get the most benefit from analyzing memory usage when you work with your application in terms of typical use cases.
