Measuring J2EE Application Performance in Production

When J2EE applications are moved from the lab into production, performance becomes critical. However, measuring the performance of J2EE applications is non-trivial. Unlike stand-alone Java technology applications, J2EE technology-based applications are deployed into a production environment that is quite unlike the test or lab environment. This difference, combined with a need to actively monitor and manage performance, forces performance measurement in production systems.

This session describes the common J2EE performance measurement techniques (built-in, build-your-own, free and commercial), with a focus on the impact of the technique on the system under test and in production. Real-world data on common application servers is presented. The merits and faults of each technique are discussed.

Gain a full understanding of J2EE performance measurement, and a new appreciation for the overhead imposed both by common measurement techniques and by the application servers themselves.
