just another tool question: we are having problems with a java process which is taking high cpu load after running for a while. heap-memory consumption is not the problem (could already see this by using jconsole). to analyze the bottleneck we want to use a profiler.
our tool requirements: -plugin from outside to a running application/process (like jconsole) -getting information about cpu-load and which methods/threads are the problem. good analyzation for that
i had a look at JProbe and JProfiler which are promising, but are there other free tools?
