I've been a Java programmer since the early days. As a co-owner of ej-technologies GmbH (founded in 2002), I was able to gain extensive experience in the area of performance and deployment tools. Due to my professional work, I'm a leading expert on answering questions about perfino, JProfiler and install4j :-) Ingo has posted 8 posts at DZone. You can read more from them at their website.

JProfiler 8.0 by ej-technologies

  • submit to reddit
JProfiler 8.0 is now available and introduces a number of significant new features:

  • Remote tracking allows you to follow calls from one profiled JVM to another. RMI, web services and remote EJBs are supported.
  • NoSQL and big data probes have been added: Bottlenecks in MongoDB, Cassandra and HBase can now be analyzed with JProfiler. 
  • A class loader probe has been added that includes a cross-link into the heap walker. Solving class-loader memory leaks is now much easier than before. 
  • Recording profiles allow you to switch on several recording types with a single click. 
  • A number of heap walker improvements have been implemented that focus on retained objects and retained sizes. 
  • JProfiler can now read PHD snapshots that are produced by IBM JVMs. 
  • Profiling Java 8 is now fully supported

See the What's new page  for a detailed presentation of all new features.

A fully functional evaluation of JProfiler is available for download  (no registration required).
