I am looking for an Opensource or freeware Performance monitoring and profiling tool. Right now we are using Java melody but it is just a monitoring
tool where it doesnot give much information on the memory leaks, etc. I need to a tool which captures the memory leaks and GC operations in detail.
Please suggest one.
jvisualvm in the jdk comes with some basic profiling tools. i believe netbeans and eclipse both have decent profiling tools available. quite honestly, though, if you are serious about it, we use yourkit java profiler (not free) and it is by far the best java profiler i have used. well worth the money.
