Documentation on probes and otehr features? [message #56982] Thu, 09 March 2006 15:11 Go to next message

Since the online help of TPTP does not work (see my other thread) I have
a few questions:

Is there some downloadable documentation re. specific features? E.g. I
would like to profile not my entire application but rather start & stop
at specific points during execution (i.e. I want to analyze just a
particular workhorse method after reading some configuration file and
before writing the result). Can that be done?

In the profile wizard there is a feature "probes" mentioned. What is
this and what can it be used for?

Yes, you can definitely control the profiler from your application. Please
see the following documentation:
http://www.eclipse.org/tptp/home/downloads/installguide/Agen tController41.html
click on the platform that you're profiling on and scroll down to the "
Invocation of the Java Profiler from the Command Line" section. You
should look into starting the profiler Agent in "applicationControlled"
mode. Once the profiler agent is started in this mode, you can control it
via the Profiler class.

Probekit is a tool in TPTP that allows you to instrument your application
for the purpose of collecting detailed runtime information about a
program's object, methods, instance variables, arguments, and exceptions.
Please see the following document in the help content for more details:
"Monitoring and analyzing performance" -> "Collecting run-time data with
user-defined probes". You can use probekit to write probes that will
activate/deactivate profiling when desired then run your application in
"applicationControlled" mode and have your probes control the profiler.

Note that TPTP 4.1 currently gets shipped with static probekit, which
requires you to instrument your applications "manually". TPTP 4.2 will
include dynamic probekit which allows you to apply your probes on-the-fly.
The instrumentation will be done in memory and there will be no clean-up
work required, since the .class files are not modified and the
insturmentation is done in memory.

Thanks Navid,
that sounds very promising. I'll have a closer look.

In which of TPTP's 129 .jar files do I find this Profiler class?

The Profile class is in the hcframe.jar file of the
"org.eclipse.tptp.platform.collection.framework" plugin. Here's the
javadoc for it:

Sorry that I keep coming back to this but, alas, the documentation is =
rather terse on this - at least I don't consider this self-explanatory =
at all!

As you may recall, I want to do application controlled profiling, i.e. I =
want to measure just a specific part of my application.

So I create a Profiler=20

profiler =3D Profiler.getProfiler();
System.out.println("TPTP Profiler: " + profiler);

and issue:

profiler.startProfiling(true); =20
profiler.markHeap(); =20

before the code that I want to analyze and

profiler.analyzeHeap("profile-run" + i);
profiler.stopProfiling();

after that code. Is this correct?

I also managed to start my application in "applicationControlled" mode =
by adding

-XrunpiAgent:server=3Dapplication=20

to the VM arguments. That seems to run as well, at least the =
System.out.println(profiler) shows that I got a "profiler".

But in contrast to the automatic profiling (where after each profiling =
automatically a new entry appears under the performance profiling =
project name listed on the Profiling... =3D> Destination tab) nothing =
else seems to happens. Wht do I need to do for the actual profiling? Am =
I correct, that I have to run this now with the "normal" Run... instead =
of Profiling...? Because if I run this with Profiling... the VM crashes =
in the moment when the application wants to obtain the Profiler.

And where do the profiling data go??? I searched my entire disk for a =
file called "profile-run*" but found nothing...

*Changed the subject to match our discussion*

>Sorry that I keep coming back to this but, alas, the documentation is
rather terse on this - at least I don't consider this self-explanatory at
all!

I agree that the documentation on this is minimal. If you think we need
better documentation on this subject, I urge you to open an enhancement
request here https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=TPTP for
creating a document that explains (with examples) on how you can control
the profiler programmatically. Please add me to the CC list of your
enhancement (nmehrega@ca.ibm.com)

I'm attaching a simple example that controls the profiler
programmatically. Please take a look at it to see how the APIs should be
used.

>I also managed to start my application in "applicationControlled" mode by

Is this a typo? It should really be
-XrunpiAgent:server=applicationControlled not
-XrunpiAgent:server=application.

>But in contrast to the automatic profiling (where after each profiling
automatically a new entry appears under the performance profiling project
name listed on the Profiling... => Destination tab) nothing else seems to
happens.

file called "profile-run*" but found nothing...

Yes, you're just suppose to "Run" this and not profile it. In terms of
where the data goes.. I think you missed this part of the instructions:

The pluginconfig.xml file must be modified to use this mode. The
pluginconfig.xml is located in the following directory:
<agent_controller_home>\plugins\org.eclipse.tptp.platform.collection.framework_ <version>\config\pluginconfig.xml

The following modification is required:
<Agent client="DYNAMIC" configuration="default" dataChannelSize="64M"
name="Java Profiling Agent" type="Profiler"/>

should be modified to

<Agent client="HEADLESS" configuration="default" dataChannelSize="64M"
name="Java Profiling Agent" type="Profiler" logFile="C:\profile.trcxml"/>

Note that the Agent client attribute has been changed to "HEADLESS" and
that the "logFile" attribute has been added.

The profiling data will be sent to the file specified in the value of
'logFile'. In the above example, it's C:\profile.trcxml. You then have
to import this file into the workbench by right clicking in the profiling
monitor view and selecting import -> expand profile and logging folder ->
select profiling file -> next -> specify your profiling file -> select the
amount of data you want to display in the range tab (i.e. show heap
statistics, show execution statistics, or show full data) -> finish.

I completely agree that the documentation on this should be improved,
which is why I've asked you to open an enhancement request.

Where/how do I specify such a profiling set when running this using the =

I scanned the online help re. agent controller but didn't find anything =

Preferably one should be able to generate the profiling set using the =
GUI for the integrated agent and then to export or share those settings.

This is a good question. I always thought that you can specify the
'filters' parameter when you run something in applicationControlled mode,
but I tried this right now and it doesn't seem to be working. Here's how
you specify the filters parm:

-XrunpiAgent:server=applicationControlled,filters=d:\folder\ myfilters.txt

I'm attaching a sample file you would use for your filters. Give this a
try, if it doesn't work for you either, open another defect
[https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/enter_bug.cgi?product=TPTP] and set its
severity to normal.

Your only other option would be to specify your filters when importing
your trace file. In the profiling file import wizard, click on the
'filter' tab and specify your filters there. I realize that this doesn't
solve the issue of the profiler taking too long to generate the trace
file. Hopefully we can address this issue soon after you file the defect.
