BTrace aggregations - contribution from community
By sundararajan on Jun 26, 2008
If you have used DTrace, chances are that you have used aggregations. For performance issues, aggregated data is often more useful than individual data points. With BTrace, aggregating data is bit painful (you have to manage using Maps explicitly). It would be nice to have DTrace-style aggregation functions such as sum, max, min and so on. Glencross, Christian M (cited in my previous entry) has contributed code changes, doc and a sample for easy-to-use aggregation facility for BTrace. Please refer to the sample code (JdbcQueries.java) that demonstrates aggregations.
Now something unrelated to aggregations, but related to BTrace : I came to know about another use-case of BTrace. See also http://blog.igorminar.com/2008/06/btrace-dtrace-for-java.html
