[Super Awesome Speaker] Nitsan Wakart presents JVM Profiler Mechanics

  • Oct 26, 2015 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

About Nitsan:
A blogger and a coder with a pedantic passion for performance. My work has spanned army intelligence systems, era startups, financial institutions and innovative product companies. Currently the Lead Performance Eng. for Azul Systems  by day, and main contributor to kickass lock free data structures library JCTools by night.

We will take a deep dive into the guts of Honest-Profiler, an unbiased sampling CPU profiler for the JVM, and the JVM internals which enable it to work.

• Introduction: CPU profiling, sampling and biases explained.

• How does it hang together? interrupts, non-blocking code and an unofficial API

• Sampling the instruction pointer: how it works and limits of accuracy

• Walking the stack: demangling a mixed Java/native stack, challenges and limitations

• Reading a profile: flat profile vs. tree profile vs. flamegraphs

The talk will include some counter examples from other profilers(JVisualVM/JMC/YourKit/ZVision).

    I'd like to bring a friend along, but I see no option to do that (ie, +1). Are we not allowed to do that for this particular meetup?

    • Richard K.

      Sorry for that @jax_0n.
      RSVP +1 is now enabled. Please check.
