Oracle Java Mission Control Review

We used it to spot and solve performance problems that had an impact on hardware costs and response times.

Valuable Features:

  • Hot Methods show activity of specific methods and the origins from where the methods were called.
  • Threads contention shows which threads were blocked by which threads and for how long.

Improvements to My Organization:

Using it, we spotted and solved performance problems that had an impact on hardware costs and response times. So it's saved us both money and time.

Room for Improvement:

It would be nice to have a centralized console that receives information from agents installed in every JVM in order to get a big picture of our entire system. 

Use of Solution:

I've used it for two years.

Deployment Issues:

We had no issues with the deployment.

Stability Issues:

There were no issues with the stability.

Scalability Issues:

We had no issues scaling it for our needs.

Previous Solutions:

We previously used VisualVM and ad hoc programs that I developed myself.

Initial Setup:

The initial setup was very simple and straightforward.

Implementation Team:

We implemented it with our in-house team.

Other Advice:

The impact on live servers is minimal; however, it is important to perform performance profiling in the pre-live stages of high-transaction systems.
