OptimizeIt...

Does anyone with plugin writing skills use the OptimizeIt profiler? I'm considering buying it and would love some comparitive feedback and would love to know if anyone has considered writing a plugin for it.

I've found OptimizeIt nice to use.
As for a plugin: is it pluggable? There is an API for the app being tested,
but not sure if there is one for an app that wants to test another app.

Having used both, I'd go with JProfiler instead, from ej-Technologies. It's got a more powerful display and easier configuration. Also, it comes with an (admittedly pretty limitted) IDEA plugin, for launching JProfiler with an IDEA run configuration. When I was negotiating my current position, I only demanded two tools: IDEA and JProfiler. It's that good.

It all not so sunny. I've used, and currently using, both tools too. I'm
agree that JProfiler had more user frendly interface and easier
installation/configuration, but... try to locate memory leaks with
JProfiler and with OptimizeIt.

Oops, sorry.

I've forgotten to setup Netscape.

It was my message above.

We've discovered www.yourkit.com memory profiler recently. No other tool
comes close to in memory profiling.

I too would love an OptimizeIt plugin, but I won't be holding out for
Borland to write one for obvious reasons ;) I think with these tools a
lot is down to how you use them and how your code is written. I
personally have no problems tracking down memory leaks with OptimizeIt,
although I'll try JProfiler too now seeing as Mr. Griffith digs it.

Possibly true, I've been focusing on the CPU and thread profiling, with less emphasis on memory. Just how my work's gone.

IMHO, thread profiling in OptimizeIt is better.

How about JProbe? Does anyone have pros/cons comments when compared to OptimizeIt and JProfiler?

Yes, JProfiler is a very good and powerful tool. I could recommend it.

Quest provides an IDEA plugin for JProbe "in the box".

Have you tried it with yourkit.com?

Version 0.1.0 (for OptIt 5.0) now available via the Plugin Manager.
Let me know if you'd like a port for higher versions.

Hello,

I am trying to profile with Optit 5.5, but the start buttons are greyed out?

Hi there,

Well there's a couple of issues at play here. Firstly the buttons are
most likely greyed out because you are running with a newer version of
IDEA than the plugin was compiled for. Unfortunately I am relying on
some internal API's to hook into the run command, but they seem to
change slightly every build. I was hoping that with the release of 4.0
the api would get a little more stable, but there's still been regular
releases recently.

I will try to compile a version for build 1178 (available from
www.intellij.com) as soon as I can, and that should get you up and
running again.

But also you say you are using Optit 5.5 - this plugin has not been
tested with that version yet, so I can't guarantee anything, but I'd be
interested in your experiences. I did download a trial of Optit6 to try
and get that integrated too, looks like 5.5 is also required for some
people then.

Thanks for the feedback, I'll let you know as soon as it's available.

I have uploaded version 0.1.2 for build 1178, try that with OptIt 5.5,
but I can't promise anything :)

Please let me know how you get on.

Hello,

Thanks alot, that did seem to help out, very nice!,

A few issues though:
- Optit was not able to find my projects source code!
- How can I start a webapp with the plugin, this is the kind of applications I am developing almost all the time.


Thanks again.

The source code problem is due to the fact it's written for 5 I think.
I'll try to get an evaluation of 5.5 and compile for that, should help out.

Unfortunately I have no experience of coding webapps so I don't really
understand the requirements - the plugin only understands basic
application run configurations at present. Maybe when the code
stabilises and I get round to putting the source code on the wiki,
someone with some knowledge can add the support... unless you can
explain to me how it needs to work?

Thanks,
N.
