This demonstration will illustrate how the visualization tool, Performance Explorer (PE), can be used to understand the behavior of Java applications.
PE allows the visualization of data over time in various graphical and tabular ways. In addition, PE allows the interactive creation and modification of visualizations. Most properties of the visualization are defined using expressions in a language similar to Java expressions.
PE is particularly well suited for traces generated by Jikes RVM, an open source research virtual machine for Java.
