SAP MemoryAnalyzer

SAP's Markus Kohler wrote a blog entry about their Memory Analyzer tool I blogged about some days ago. It includes a flash based walk-through video about its core features. It also includes a download link. I did not try to download, because I have the DVD from jax.07. The blog says "for free", so I am not sure if the tool is really limited to a 30 day trial (as is the Netweaver Composition Environment which includes it).

Hi Daniel,
I'm really not sure whether the Memory Analyzer itself is time limited. I really wasn't aware that the preview is time limited.

Fortunately I didn't say that it's forever free ;)

Regards,
Markus

Hi Daniel,

as far as we (the developers) know, the version on the DVD is not time limited. However, it's a bit older than the version we demoed at JAX and JavaOne.

Btw. the reason why we started to develop it was that there were no tools available with which we could open GB-large heap dumps and analyze them with acceptable performance.

However, the true benefit of the tool are its analysis capabilities. It really helps in real life, even with such general classes like Strings and the like. That's more helpful than the plain speed/performance of the tool. :-)

Regards,

Vedran

Hi!

In the meanwhile SAP Memory Analyzer was shown at JavaOne 2007 in a technical session and is available for free download from SAP SDN here: https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/wiki?path=/display/Java/Java+Memory+Analysis

Cheers,
