Title:
IBM Monitoring and Diagnostic Tools for Java: Introducing Health Center 2.0
Stream:
Java SIG (3)
Speakers:
Jonathan Lawrence
Abstract:
This session provides an overview and demo of a suite of tools available to diagnose Java application performance and run-time problems, including the new Health Center 2.0 release. The tools cover, amongst others, such areas as live application monitoring, detecting memory leaks, method profiling, garbage collection tuning and heap analysis. We will show you how the tools can highlight performance problems during the development cycle and then also be used once an application goes live to ensure its continued efficiency.

What will your audience walk away with?
1. Understand how to use Health Center for live, low overhead, application monitoring
2. How to identify heap usage by interrogating Java objects using Memory Analyzer
3. Visualise, understand and tune your Garbage Collection behaviour with GCMV
