SunStudio Portal Article: Performance Analyzer
By vtatkar on Aug 30, 2006
Two new articles describe how to use the Sun Studio Performance Tools to profile Java applications, and WebLogic servers.
Profiling Java Applications with Sun Studio Performance Tools describes the challenge of profile Java applications either pure Java or mixed Java/C/C++, which need to run as a process instantiating the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), which is itself a C++ program.
Profiling WebLogic Servers with Sun Studio Performance Tools describes how to profile servers being run under BEA's WebLogic® system. A server run under BEA's WebLogic is a Java application that you launch by running a script to invoke the JVM.
This is the only profiling tool I know of that does C, C++, Fortran, Java, Weblogic servers, OpenMP, MPI, Pthreads, Auto-parallelized code well both on Solaris as well as Linux(es). Both in GUI and command-line. A true SunStudio Gem!
