Subject Re: [Proposal] Kato : draft Incubator project proposal posted
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2008 07:59:05 GMT
Hi Dims -  There is every interest in developing these sorts of tools. We 
plan to create useful example tools that will show how to use the API 
There is some existing tooling in the code that we get from IBM but we 
will be adding more. 

 I loosely classify the diagnostic tools space in two ways;  what type of 
data the tool works with, and the range of its visualisation and analysis 
capabilities. 
If you do a crude mapping you end up with four quardrants   Process data 
and Java runtime data vs  visualisation and  problem analysis. 

We'd like to have tools in all four quadrants. 

We were thinking of creating a tool to do basic  native out of memory 
analysis,  writing an adapter for the Eclipse Memory Analysis Tool , 
 producing a JDI connector to allow exploration of a dump via your 
favourite java debugger client and , finally an explorer for process 
dumps.
