Fully featured low overhead profiler for Java EE and Java SE platforms.
Monitoring and profiling solution for Gradle, Maven, Ant, JUnit and TestNG.
Easy to use performance and memory profiler for .NET framework.

Running applications with the profiler

Local and remote profiling

The profiled application and the profiler can run on the same machine or on different machines.

These modes are called local profiling and remote profiling respectively.

The profiler agent

To profile a Java application, be it local or remote, the profiler agent should be loaded into the JVM.

Approach 1: Start JVM with the profiler agent

This approach is recommended as it provides the full set of profiling capabilities. To learn how to apply it, see appropriate subtopic:

Approach 2: Attach the profiler to a running JVM instance started without the agent

Attaching the profiler agent to a running JVM instance simplifies profiling, as it avoids a special step to enable profiling: any running Java application can be profiled on demand.

However, attaching to a running JVM is not always possible, and some profiling features are not available.
