Easiest way to profile Java applications

Tags: programming May 9, 2009    

The easiest way to profile Java applications, besides printing out the difference between two System.currentTimeMillis() calls, is to use the profiler built in to Sun's JVM.

"java -agentlib:hprof=cpu=samples Abc" runs the Abc program. By default, a java.hprof.txt file is created.

And "java -Xrunhprof:help" shows help.
