Thread Profiling | Datadog

Thread Profiling

Profile threads with Datadog to optimize CPU consumption, memory-allocation, and more.

Thread profiling allows you to analyze the performance of your code by measuring the time it takes your methods to run and the amount of CPU and memory they consume. You can rapidly optimize code performance by profiling threads with the Datadog Continuous Profiler.


Gain code-level visibility with thread profiling

Optimize application performance by thread profiling with the Continuous Profiler.
  • Track and compare code efficiency and save on cloud costs by identifying the highest CPU-consuming and memory-allocating threads in your application
  • Reduce application latency by correlating slow requests or services with a breakdown of deadlocked threads by method
  • Track thread performance after code deployments or over time with out-of-the-box thread profiling dashboards

Profile threads to spend less time troubleshooting

Utilize the Continuous Profiler for always on thread profiling in context.
  • Use thread profiling to optimize the performance of your application code in production, with minimal overhead, all the time
  • Quickly find the most time-consuming parts of your code with a breakdown of code profiling data for every distributed request
  • Optimize your application's code and user experience by analyzing wall time, lock, socket I/O, and file I/O code profiles

Automated profiling for CPU utilization and memory

Continuously profile threads to achieve optimal performance and costs for your applications.
  • Reduce cloud costs by detecting and optimizing the methods in your production code that consume the most CPU and memory
  • Leverage CPU and memory profile aggregation across hosts, services, and code versions to optimize resource consumption
  • Track CPU and memory consumption by method over time and compare thread profiles to quickly explain performance regressions after code deployments

The Essential Monitoring and Security Platform for the Cloud Age

Datadog brings together end-to-end traces, metrics, and logs to make your applications, infrastructure, and third-party services entirely observable.
