Set your code on fire with FlameGraphs


Java Language Java Language

Currently there are several tools to analyze the behavior and performance of an application, but traditionally the way of displaying results is that of tabular, either flat or tree. In this talk we will take a peek at some alternative tool that "enlightens" the darkest corners of the behavior of our applications and the JVM, showing them in a completely new and more visual way: the FlameGraphs. During the intervention a "peek under the hood" will be given to some JVM mechanisms to understand the reasons behind the failures of most well known profilers.

I have been working for 18 years in the computer field. In the last 15 years I have cultivated a strong passion in Java development, recently joined by C and ASM development on x86 / PowerPC platforms. A big fan of the DDD (Domain Driven Design) world, I have developed several Event-Sourced (and CQRS) high performance solutions in the medical and IoT field. I am an active member of various online communities on performance (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/mechanical-sympathy) and Senior Software Engineer for Red Hat in the messaging field, specialized in performance-oriented development and testing.
