Welcome to the Java Performance Counter Monitor project. The intent of this project is to expose chip level counters for Nehalem and like chips. The project is based off of C++ code published by Intel as part of an article describing a better way to monitor CPU utilization. The initial scope of this project is to expose those counters in Java via MXBeans and then ultimately have them displayed in VisualVM.
Amr will speak about JPCM @ JAVA Developer Conference 2012 in Cairo.
