Subject Re: [HELP] - Profile camel-core for optimization and faster startup
Date Fri, 26 May 2017 14:42:46 GMT
awesome work Claus :)

Just to add that you can do a lot with just VisualVM (bundled with
JDK), or if you run Oracle JDK Mission Control/Java Flight Recorder
which does not require a license when used in development[1].

And let me throw a few things into the mix: there is a great tool for
finding leaked file handles[2]; and one potential performance gain we
can work on is using
java.nio.file.Files.newInputStream/newOutputStream instead of
FileInputStream/FileOutputStream as demonstrated by Hadoop[3].
