Java Performance LiveLessons (Video Training)

Video Description

Based on the best-selling book, Java Performance LiveLessons covers the latest Oracle and third-party tools for monitoring and measuring performance on a wide variety of hardware architectures and operating systems. In these video lessons, Charlie Hunt provides viewers with an overview of a modern Java Virtual Machine, the critical performance statistics to monitor within an operating system, JVM, and Java application, an overview of how the HotSpot garbage collectors work, explanation of the garbage collection output produced by the garbage collectors, and a step by step approach to tuning a Java application.

About the Author:

Charlie Hunt is the Performance Engineering Architect at Salesforce.com. He was previously at Oracle, where he was responsible for improving the performance of the HotSpot JVM and Java SE class libraries. He has also been involved in improving the performance of the Oracle GlassFish and Oracle WebLogic servers. A regular JavaOne speaker on Java performance, he is coauthor of Java Performance (Addison-Wesley, 2011) and NetBeans™ IDE Field Guide (Prentice Hall, 2005).
