At EclipseCon today, AMD announced a new plug-in that provides the Eclipse community with increased performance management and monitoring of Java software code.
Called "CodeSleuth," this new plug-in delivers the functionality of AMD?s CodeAnalyst Performance Analyzer, a suite of tools that analyze software performance on AMD processors, including Quad-Core AMD Opteron processors. AMD is making CodeSleuth open source and available as a no-charge download within the Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
CodeSleuth allows developers to improve upon traditional performance analysis by revealing data about how the Java software code is performing on the processor. CodeSleuth can also observe performance information from 'compiled code', which can provide further insight for the developer.
CodeSleuth is available for download by visiting http://developer.amd.com/codesleuth. It is also available as an open source project at http://codesleuth.sourceforge.net.
