DripStat Agent 3.6.2 - Faster Instrumentation

Speed seems to be the theme of this week.

No impact on server startup speed anymore

Previously if you had an application that loaded a ton of classes during startup, including the DripStat agent could impact the startup speed of the application server. With today’s update the instrumentation is now fast enough to become almost negligible. You will find that there is barely any difference in the startup time of your server with or without the DripStat agent!

See GC algorithms in use

If you have the new agent installed, you will be able to see the names of the GC algorithms being used by the JVM in the Environment tab.
