The NetBeans team (Tomas, Jirka & all) has just released version 1.2 of the VisualVM, Java profiling and troubleshooting tool. A bunch of good stuff in this release:
- Sampling CRU and memory profiler
- Redesigned charts with dynamic tooltips (my favorite feature by far)
- Enhanced support for jstatd connections
I've already had a version the visualVM that came with JDK 6 update 16 (look in <JAVA_INSTALL_DIR>/bin/ for jvisualvm executable), however these new improvements made it worthwhile to install the stand alone version as well.
