Hi Testers!!

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use Java Kit profiler as a way of measuring CPU Usage, memory usage on your host and client machines.

As of now, we were using JMeter listeners to record the response time, latency and other factors to measure the performance of the application.

Besides those, there are many factors like CPU and memory usage which plays an important role in determining your application performance. Any application be it desktop, web or mobile, if takes more memory and CPU it not used frequently by the users.

Java Kit profiler gets attached to your JMeter and gives you an inside picture of the resources utilized when a certain amount of load is put. Also, gives you the number of threads running and the Daemon Threads. Heap Memory and Non-Heap memory both can be calculated using the same tool.
