Java Performance Monitoring Tools Made Easy

You can’t tune what you don’t monitor. Java application monitoring is automatically included with all JVM-based integrations. Out of the box you can:

  • See garbage collection counts, duration, and sizes
  • Get detailed visibility of heap sizes and utilization for individual memory pools; great for JVM performance tuning or setting separate alert thresholds for different pools
  • Monitor JVM thread counts, number of files open by the JVM
  • Filter any JVM metric by host, tag, or garbage collector type

Real-Time JVM Profiling

Improve Java performance by finding bottlenecks in your and 3rd party applications and services.

  • Profile any Java app on demand
  • Find methods using most CPU or wall-clock time
  • Spot calls to external services that are slowing down your Java application

Open-source & Pluggable Java Monitoring Agent

The Sematext agent collects metrics from a variety of sources in an easy, fully pluggable and extensible way


  • Open-sourced and on forkable on Github
  • Built-in JVM profiler finds performance bottlenecks in your own Java applications and servers or even any 3rd party JVM-based applications
  • Built-in distributed transaction tracing (for JVM) finds slow services in your (micro)service-based architecture

Distributed Transaction Tracing

Use Transaction Tracing to go beyond metrics and uncover slow services, slow database transactions, etc. If your apps use JDBC to talk to your DB, you can also:

  • Find slow database operations
  • View full SQL statements
  • See end-to-end HTTP transaction context, through multiple tiers, including full call traces
  • Get top 10 operations by throughput, latency, or time consumed
  • Filter database operations by type

Bring it all together: Metrics, Logs, Experience and Tracing

Sematext all-in-one solution provides you with all monitoring tools to observe your whole application’s health while automatically finding bottlenecks in your infrastructure to optimize application performance and reduce costs.
