Honest Profiler

Honest Profiler has two main benefits over other sampling profilers on the JVM:

  1. It accurately profiles applications, avoiding an inherent bias towards places that have safepoints.
  2. It profiles applications with significantly lower overhead than traditional profiling techniques, making it suitable for use in production.

NB: Honest Profiler relies on an internal API within the SUN/Oracle/OpenJDK JVM. We make no guarantees about it working on other JVMs.
