performance degradation benchmarks
What monitoring tools would you use when writing tests for a very large java solution which needs to be checked nightly or weekly in order to avoid performance degradation due to bugfixing and new functionality ? Preferably tools that show minimal impact of other processes running on the system.
I don't think that currentTimeMillis() and a profiler will do this time, but I'm open to all input. Anybody know of any good reliable monitors .. suggestions do not have to be cross platform ;)
I was wondering if anybody has an idea how Sun deals with performance tests for the JDK. They must have some kind of framework as well.
