When I started JavaPerformanceTuning.com more than 12 years ago, I recognised that the java performance tips were a valuable resource that needed extracting from articles and organising, but I didn't really give thought to organising the tools that I referenced. Last month's categoric publication of GC log analysis tools made me realise I need to organise the tools - especially given that I've referenced around 600 tools over the last 12 years!

So over this year I'll be categorising all the tools we've ever published including noting how long since they were last updated, which is useful to know in some cases (an old collection class is probably fine, whereas a tool that analysed JVM output in 2006 is probably not so useful now).

So on that vein, this month's categorised tool page is the GC log analysis tools from last month - easy given that they're already all categorised. Over the year, I'll aim to add categories for every type of tool I've referenced over the last 12 years.

Now on to all our usual links, including new tools, news, articles and, as ever, all the extracted tips from all of this month's referenced articles. Of note is the article by Patrick Peschlow which compares when you would want to use a ForkJoinPool rather than a ThreadPoolExecutor. Useful info in it's own right and I particularly liked the little gems of info like the way that unlike most other pools, the ForkJoinPool doesn't have a hard upper limit to it's pool size as it targets an active parallelism limit rather than a thread count limit.
