Java applications have become increasingly complex; as a result, diagnosing problems in these applications is a non-trivial task and may require extensive work with an external service organization. A helpful pointer in the right direction could save both time and expense. The IBM Diagnostic and Monitoring Tools for Java - Dump Analyzer is a tool that performs basic analysis against a formatted system dump and produces a concise report indicating what it thinks your next course of action should be.

This article introduces the IBM Diagnostic and Monitoring Tools for Java - Dump Analyzer and provides some background information about the types of problems that the tool can diagnose. It explains the architecture on which the IBM Diagnostic and Monitoring Tools for Java - Dump Analyzer is built and provides some thoughts about the future direction of the tool.
