This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
DevStream, provider of innovative and intuitive Enterprise Java Application Performance Management software, announced a new release of it's J2EE Performance Monitor, JView 2004 version 1.4.
JView 2004 offers sophisticated analytical tools to visualize a landscape view of your J2EE components, and to capture and view End-To-End user transactions, CPU and Method statistics, SQL Calls, thread utilization, as well as Heap size monitoring.
Used by J2EE Developers, QA Testers, and Adminstrators, JView 2004 displays data in an easy-to-read format, making it simple for non-J2EE performance experts to rapidly identify and resolve performance issues.
What's New in JView 2004 1.4
Reduced CPU and memory overhead
Certified WebSphere, SunOne, and Caucho Resin Application Servers
Certified on HP-UX and AIX Operating System
Enhanced user control over instrumentation parameters
Ability to instrument core Java classes
Support for all major databases including Oracle, DB2, MS SQL Server, and MySQL.
Reduced CPU load when storing data to database
Reduced Database sizing requirements
Increased maximum number of Agents per Nucleus Server
Automatic purging of old metric data from database (configurable)
Performance Console Enhancements:
Ability to export to HTML from the Transaction Explorer and HotSpot views
PerformancePoint overhead reductions
MReports functionality added to Trial Version
JView 2004 is the industry's only native code Java Performance Monitor, allowing for in-depth Production Java performance monitoring due to it's low overhead. JView 2004 delivers full spectrum analysis of method metric transaction time and method CPU time, along with thread stack views and SQL runtime statistics. In production mode, JView's low overhead monitoring provides detail on end-to-end transactions, helping J2EE developers, QA tests, and Administrators quickly pinpoint and resolve performance issues.
