After a brief introduction to a methodology to performance tune Java applications, the audience will guide me through the steps needed to tune an application. The application models a number of performance problems that are common in real world applications. During the session, I will introduce a number of “poor” (open source) tools that will be instrumental in helping you, the audience, diagnose and repair these problems.
Kirk Pepperdine works as an independent consultant offering Java performance-related services. Prior to focusing on Java, Kirk developed and tuned systems written in C/C++, Smalltalk, and a variety of other languages. Kirk has written many articles and spoken at several conferences on the subject of performance tuning. He helped evolve http://www.javaperformancetuning.com as a resource for performance tuning tips and information.
