Java Developer Tools: jHiccup Java Performance Analysis - http://www.azulsystems.com/jHiccup
Hiccup is an open source tool designed to measure the pauses and stalls (or “hiccups”) associated with an application’s underlying Java runtime platform. The new tool captures the aggregate effects of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), operating system, hypervisor (if used) and hardware on application stalls and response time. - Aaron Terry

Compound Theory - Using a Java URLClassLoader in CFMX Can Cause a Memory Leak - http://compoundtheory.com/...
This is a bug in ColdFusion that can cause memory leaks when using a java.net.URLClassLoader to load external jar files. Thus, this can cause memory leaks in JavaLoader, Transfer and any other system that uses this technology. However there is a workaround for the issue. - Aaron Terry

dans.blog: Quick & Dirty ColdFusion JVM Memory Monitor - http://blog.pengoworks.com/index...
Today I wanted to give you a quirk and dirty script you can run on ColdFusion 8 which will give you a lot of the same memory information—but wrapped up into a CF script. The script is based on some code from Steve Brownlee's useful post on accessing ColdFusion internals using Java. - Aaron Terry

Analyzing large heap dumps with MAT on Windows » ghidinelli.com - http://www.ghidinelli.com/2009...
A quick tip from a battle this morning… I’m still hunting down the memory leak that was the origin of my guide on finding memory leaks in the JVM a couple of weeks ago. I’m trying to analyze a heap dump using the Eclipse Memory Analysis from our ColdFusion 8 server which uses 2GB of RAM on Linux. Most of the tutorials about “large heaps” are talking about 500MB. That’s not the issue here; we run our server to use 2GB of RAM for the heap. - Aaron Terry

Finding memory leaks in your ColdFusion JVM » ghidinelli.com - http://www.ghidinelli.com/2009...
ColdFusion MX. Such an improvement in so many ways, yet when it comes to debugging, the addition of the Java Virtual Machine has created nothing but headaches for your average ColdFusion developer. The reason is: we’re not Java developers and the JVM is some scary black box full of voodoo. That’s what my mama told me. - Aaron Terry

“it could be bunnies” » Blog Archive » Using JDK tools to analyze ColdFusion hangs - http://jochem.vandieten.net/2008...
ColdFusion 8 includes the very nice server monitor that allows you to see what is happening in real time. The problem with the server monitor is that it runs in the same process as ColdFusion so when ColdFusion becomes unresponsive there is a chance that the server monitor is inaccessible as well. And of course the server monitor is Enterprise Edition only. - Aaron Terry

CFDEEP: Using MAT with Coldfusion - http://cfdeep.blogspot.com/2012...
The simplest is probably a simple jstat reporting tool. We take snapshots of our servers with jstat about once a minute, and save the results in the database. With the results I can generate a lot of useful information about our JVM. To do this I use a few basic cfchart commands and get some basic results like the following, detailing heap usage in the server. - Aaron Terry

ColdFusion out of stack space? Unfortunately it’s probably your fault. | Fly Dillon Fly - http://flydillonfly.wordpress.com/2010...
I am referring to my last post last week where I was looking into JVM Garbage collection issues, and a particular issue I was having with spontaneous ColdFusion 9 server restarts. As it turned out the problem was one of swap space, or rather a lack of it. - Aaron Terry

Salt is an open source tool to manage your infrastructure. Easy enough to get running in minutes and fast enough to manage tens of thousands of servers (and still get a response back in seconds). Execute arbitrary shell commands or choose from dozens of pre-built modules of common (or complex) commands. Target individual servers or groups of servers based on name, defined roles, or a variety of system information such as hardware, software, operating system, current version, current environment, and many more. - Aaron Terry

Underscore is a utility-belt library for JavaScript that provides a lot of the functional programming support that you would expect in Prototype.js (or Ruby), but without extending any of the built-in JavaScript objects. It's the tie to go along with jQuery's tux, and Backbone.js's suspenders. - Aaron Terry

Fabric — Fabric 1.4.3 documentation - http://docs.fabfile.org/en...
Fabric is a Python (2.5 or higher) library and command-line tool for streamlining the use of SSH for application deployment or systems administration tasks. It provides a basic suite of operations for executing local or remote shell commands (normally or via sudo) and uploading/downloading files, as well as auxiliary functionality such as prompting the running user for input, or aborting execution. Typical use involves creating a Python module containing one or more functions, then executing them via the fab command-line tool. Below is a small but complete “fabfile” containing a single task: - Aaron Terry
