Hi,
I am evaluating these two performance tunning products. I am new to all the 2.
I did find Optimizeit easy to use , what is not the case of JProbe that takes a lot of memory to run. But I am more interrested in the feature side of things.
Thanks for your comments !

Both provide more or less the same features.
But JProbe allows you to look at the profiling data in many different ways.
For example, there is only one way (if I'm right) to look at the CPU Profiling (as a method call tree with nodes displaying the percentage of time).
But JProbe displays the same CPU Profiling data in several forms.
If you want to get started quickly, OptimizeIt is the choice.
But JProbe is better in presentation (and has few additional features too). But the learning curve for JProbe is slightly more than OptimizeIt.
Hope this helps.

What I tend to look for is loci of object creation and loci of cpu consumption. IMHO, the views that JProbe supplies are much better at letting me look at an execution profile and determine where the loci exist. But, this is a personal preference so....
You may want to check out the tools section of thissite for more information.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
