Categories: Miscellaneous, Profiling - Debugging

Latest version: 1.0
Added 2005-05-25

The Java Application Monitor (JAMon) is a free Java API that allows developers to monitor production applications.
JAMon can be used to determine application performance bottlenecks, user/application interactions, and application scalability. JAMon gathers summary statistics such as hits, execution times (total, average, minimum, maximum, standard deviation), and simultaneous application requests. JAMon statistics are displayed in the clickable JAMon Report.

Author: Neotys

Latest version: 1.0
Added 2005-03-23

Load testing tool for web applications (J2EE, ...).
By simulating a large number of users accessing your application, NeoLoad tests the robustness and the performance of the server under different loads. A test report pinpoints errors and bottlenecks, so you can focus on your slow JSP pages and code, or server configuration issues.

Through the test, NeoLoad answers these questions: How many users does my site handle? Will my site crash under load? What are the response times?

Key features:
- GUI for designing your tests (no scripting, wizards).
- Can dynamically extract links and data while the test is running to inject them in the scenario.
- Browser-based recorder: browse your application to record your scenario.
- System monitoring: get statistics from your servers (CPU, Memory, ů).
- Data replacement: log in the virtual users with different accounts, submit forms changing the values.
- Data extraction: extract generated links and forms.
- Content validation: check page content under load.
- Reporting: generate a test report (HTML/PDF/XML).
- SSL: record and replay secured pages.
- IP spoofing: mandatory to test IP based load balancers.
- Written in Java and multi-platform (Windows, Linux, Solaris).
- Can generate a large amount of traffic by using additional load generators.

Latest version: 2.3.4
Added 2005-01-28Updated 2008-01-26

Apache JMeter is a 100% pure Java desktop application designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance. It was originally designed for testing Web Applications but has since expanded to other test functions.

Apache JMeter may be used to test performance both on static and dynamic resources (files, Servlets, Perl scripts, Java Objects, Data Bases and Queries, FTP Servers and more). It can be used to simulate a heavy load on a server, network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types. You can use it to make a graphical analysis of performance or to test your server/script/object behavior under heavy concurrent load.

Features include:
- Can load and performance test HTTP and FTP servers as well as arbitrary database queries (via JDBC)
- Full Swing and lightweight component support (precompiled JAR uses packages javax.swing.* )
- Full multithreading framework allows concurrent sampling by many threads and simultaneous sampling of different functions by seperate thread groups
- Caching and offline analysis/replaying of test results
- Extensible:
- Pluggable samplers allow many testing capabilities
- Several load statistics may be choosen with pluggable timers
- Data analysis and visualization plugins allow extendibility as well as personalization
- Functions can be used to provide dynamic input to a test or provide data manipulation
- Scriptable samplers (BeanShell is fully supported; and there is a sampler which supports BSF-compatible languages)

Author: Desiderata Software

Latest version: 1.0
Added 2007-02-07

Tool for debugging JSP (Java Server Pages) scripts.
Given a JSP, JspDebug will generate a Java file that's close to the JSP, and can be debugged using any IDE that has a debugger. The structure of this Java file is specially designed for ease of debugging. Once the bug has been found, the fix can be put into the original JSP. Before adding the fix to the original JSP, the Java file generated by JspDebug can also be modified to see if a particular fix will solve the problem.

Features include:
- During debugging, a String variable named _content is available. It can be examined or watched in the debugging IDE, and it will contain the JSP output until the current statement.
- Supports Servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2

SAP Memory Analyzer

áHome Page HomeáPage

Categories: Profiling - Debugging

Author: SAP

Latest version: 1.1.1
Added 2007-11-24

Heap analyzer that helps you find big chunks of memory and identify who is keeping these objects alive.

SAP Memory Analyzer was developed to analyze productive heap dumps with hundreds of millions of objects. Once the heap dump is parsed, you can re-open it instantly, get the retained size of single objects and approximate the retained size of a set of objects. The Analyzer is (relatively) low on resource consumption, so you can analyze multi-GB heap dumps on 32 bit boxes.
SAP Memory Analyzer supports HPROF binary heap dumps, a de-facto standard of Sun supported also by other vendors: Sun, SAP and HP JDK/JVM from version 1.4.2_12 and 5.0_7 and 6.0 upwards. IBM doesn't support HPROF binary heap dumps.
SAP Memory Analyzer is based on Eclipse 3.3 and needs a 1.5 JDK.
