memory profiler recommendation

Discussion in 'Java' started by Matthew Fleming, May 4, 2004.

  1. Javameisters,

    I have written an application for J2SE using the Netbeans IDE. I would
    like to test it for memory leaks before releasing it, and would like a
    recommendation as to what to use. I tried OptimizeIt some time ago,
    and it seemed to do what I want, but I was just wondering if there are
    better (or less expensive) alternatives.

    Thanks much,

    Matthew Fleming

  2. I'd recommend you YourKit Java Profiler (http://www.yourkit.com). One
    of its great features is that profiler doesn't slow down your
    application. You just need to run your application with small profiler
    agent, then connect to the agent from profiler UI and capture memory
    snapshot.

    YourKit Profiler can also calculate "retained" size of the object or
    set of objects. It allows to understand the amount of leaked memory.

    Kind regards,
    Vladimir Kondratyev
