Hello All,
I would like to know which is the profiler mostly used in software industry. I would like it to get used in my company. Though I have gone through some dump details of other profilers like jprofiler but would like to take an opinion before using it in my project.

The few times I needed a profiler at work, I used the Netbeans Profiler (http://profiler.netbeans.org/) which was sufficient for my needs.

If you are developing using the Eclipse IDE, you might want to look at TPTP (http://www.eclipse.org/tptp/). Similarly to Joachim, it is the only profiler I've used, so I don't know if it is the most popular one in the industry.

Sounds more difficult than the usual beginner's question. Moving. Since NetBeans and Eclipse have both been mentioned, let's try the IDEs forum.

In terms of "corporate standards", I noticed (from my small sampling of projects in large companies) that Wily (now owned by CA) seems to be the most prevalent. I have also seen a few IT shops that have standardize on Yourkit. Mercury also seems very much in use -- but in that case, it is mostly for their load generator, and not for their profiler.

Have a look at this URL for the open source profilers in java.

However, personally I love netbeans profiler.
