What free tools are available for inspecting and tweaking the performance of an application? Any favorites?

Hi Dirk,
Have a look at http://www.javaperformancetuning.com/tools/index.shtml and http://www.javaperformancetuning.com/resources.shtml#ProfilingToolsFree where some (free & commercial) tools are listed and evaluated.

Some great resources. I have downloaded some of them and will try to use tonight to give a feedback. Anyone already using them with satisfaction?

I am using the shareware version of J-Sprint. It's pretty good!
Thinking to buy it ($50).

I've been using J-Sprint for the past few days as well. It's decent, but I've noticed quite a few bugs running it on Windows XP. I don't know that these bugs are specific to running it on Windows XP.
I'll be trying more packages. If I don't find a reliable one, I'm considering writing a new application since the JVMPI is available to all of us.

JAMon can determine performance bottlenecks, scalability problems, among other things. Other features include the ability to monitor production code, and to disable monitoring at runtime. Using JAMon requires no setup or
training. Simply download JAMon.jar (90K) from the following links and you could be monitoring in a few minutes!
This brief intro does not do service to all the benifits of JAMon. Review the following links for more info:
To see the type of information that JAMon generates look at the following sample JAMon report:
