If there are concerns mava whether that performance can be met early in the software development process, then you have the luxury to mitigate that risk by conducting some experiments to identify whether those risks are “real” along with whether you may need to make some alternative decisions, which may require a major shift in the choice of software architecture, design or implementation.

Anyone reading this book should have good understanding of Java programming and also have at his disposal jaba Java application which they can tune as they read through the chapters. After all, they’re usually trying to solve similar problems. Even if you don’t do a lot of work with Java, the first section introduces you to performance monitoring and techniques in various operating systems.

If you master that section alone it is worth the price. Whether you are a beginner, or a seasoned developer, it will take time to digest the gory details presented.

I really wish that the authors would have passed the manuscript around and received feedback on their writing. Showing of 36 reviews.

Java Performance by Charlie Hunt

But beyond that, this book is packed with tons of useful information that has helped me greatly understand the performance tuning, profiling, and benchmarking processes. Please take a moment to review and update. So the reason we advocate the “hottest call path” approach is we are assuming you’re looking for peak performance.

Please try again later. Sometimes it may be application profiling, sometimes it may be JVM tuning and sometimes it may be tuning an operating system, our experience is that it’s rarely operating system tuning.

Also Glassfish is used as the app server for examples in Java EE related monitoring chapters. From start to finish, it is not difficult to see that if you want to consider yourself a serious Java performance engineer, you need to master the majority of the book.

Book Review: Java Performance by Charlie Hunt and Binu John

This charlez is also touched upon in the book sections from Chapter 8, “Design of Experiments and Use of Statistical Methods”. Ziyi Luo rated it it was amazing Dec 17, The remaining chapters continue with the theme of benchmarking, each chapter dedicate to even more specialized domains of benchmarking. For example, the book talks about how to reduce TLB misses perhaps the most common form of CPU cache miss and how to reduce involuntary context switches.

Get to Know Us. Chapter 9 shows how Little’s law could be used for benchmark validation.

Started to read this book as soon as it arrived. Our hope is that readers will find at least one thing in the book that helps them.

Could not able to resist reading couple of chapters immediately after receiving the book. Join a community of oversenior developers. Without a solid understanding of them, it is not easy to understand the discussions in the following chapters.

So, if what you are wanting to learn from performance testing is related to how well a Java application scales, having a testing environment that replicates as close as possible the production environment is important.

In our opinion, we think the methodology can be adapted to agile approaches and in general most software development approaches. Alessandro Gallotta rated it really liked it Feb 11, Maybe if you break the text down into sections like Josh Block did with his Effective Java book – that is a good example of a readable book.

But I would suggest reading this book in a different order: Ikaro Silva rated it it was ok Nov 11, Java Performance and Scalability: Given that the book advocates a slightly different approach to many others on the topic – recommending a use case, rather than code-centric approach to tuning, and also suggesting that software professionals think about performance tuning much earlier in the development cycle than is commonly done – InfoQ spoke to Charlie Hunt and Binu John to find about more about their thinking here.


Dec 10, Keith Cochran rated it it was amazing. If, however, you only need a small improvement to meet your performance goals, then looking at the hottest method and improving it will likely offer a quicker means to your end goal than the “hottest call path” approach.

Most modern profilers offer a “hottest call path” view. It’s worth mentioning that one thing we have noticed with folks who are investigating a performance issue, is they tend to gravitate towards what they know best. Set up a giveaway. The two chapters covering profiling one focused on using Oracle’s Solaris Studio Performance Analyzer and the NetBeans Profiler, and the other on resolving common issuesare also first-rate, and I perforkance particularly peerformance to find an appendix with source code examples for common, but hard to resolve, problems such as lock contention, resizing Java collections, and increasing parallelism.

There is not much to critcize in this superb technical book dedicated to the performance enginnering on the Java platform. Update Company name to: Getting the Most Out of Your Code. On the other hand, make no mistake, this is not a lightweight book, or a cookbook which you can consult for a few performance tuning recipes. The chapters covering Web Services performance rely on SOAP jonh services and might not be really relevant to few readers. That can be a difficult task. Solid overview of JVM tuning, performance monitoring, profiling and all of pperformance low-level technical details of chales JVM that are worth knowing when needing to debug performance issues.

I have been looking all around for Java Performance tuning and no book or article gave excellent information as this book did. Discover Prime Book Box for Kids. I’m in the “I don’t care that I don’t know what I don’t know stage”.
