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.
I would like to know name of profilers, free ones preferred, that can monitor and show CPU and memory consumption by different modules (classes) of a complete application. I want to monitor performance of each module separately.
I read about Netbeans profiler embedded with its 6.1 version but not sure if it has got that feature. What I have seen is it displays the memory allocations and CPU usage for the complete application or the modules we have selected as whole, but not on per module basis.
For any clarification please let me know.
Thank you all. Lalit K. Nagalkar [ November 19, 2008: Message edited by: Lalit Nagalkar ]

Thanks William and Steve,
Steve, I googled it but I can't go through their long features descriptions and then test if their claims are satisfactory because of time scarcity. However, I am going through Netbeans Profiler & JProfiler-5 (Eval ver).
I want to be suggested one good profiler, from your experiences, that allows to profile whole application module by module and show each module's CPU and memory usages and also point out its place in the code.
Hi, I am using HP Diagnostic tools. It's too good. Not only module basis you can get for each object and it's method. Also you will get the info about time it is taking to excute even your SQL. But you need to configure it. Right now I can't recall the file that you need to modify but it will available in conf folder of HP Diagnostic Tools.You need to modify two files for your need. It's free also. If you want to use it to have a try and want to know the config details let me know, I will send you my wiki manual.
