The performance and stability of Java applications in production is getting more and more critical. Most (if not all) of todays businesses rely on software. More and more of these applications use web or mobile technologies to directly offer service to customers or integrate with partners. These applications often leverage other applications or services to deliver the expected result. The infrastructure on which these services and application run is virtualized and will move to public or private clouds in the near future.
It can be very difficult to analyze performance and stability problems in these highly distributed and loaded environments. There are only a few tools available but most of them need intesive knowledge about instrumenting and configuring the tool to see the right information. In addition to that most of these tools are extremely expensive.
