Hi all,

I have just started working on performance monitoring and load testing of a J2EE distributed application running on weblogic application server. The application has web services and local ejbs. The application runs on Linux and HP-UX enviornments.

I am unable to decide as which of the following are useful in above case:

Jps
Jstat
Jmap
Hprof
Hat
Jstack
Jconsole.

Also please let me know if a combination of one or more is to used.

Also any pointers to useful articles/books are highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

JAMon is another one that has some traction in the Java space.

I don't think one should let the JVM generate Hprof information continuously in a production setting (that could be a lot of information, and all lumped together doesn't say very much).

JConsole is an interactive tool, so it's not in the same class.

Not sure if you looked at jamon or not yet, but I just made a new release which makes it more useful. With no code changes you can use JAMon to keep aggregate stats for your log if you use log4j, and also 'tail' your log file via a searchable/sortable page in the jamon web app.

Here is info on this new feature of jamon 2.6: http://jamonapi.sourceforge.net/log4j_jamonappender.html
