Instruments Implementation with GraalVM Enterprise

Within GraalVM Enterprise platform “Tools” are also called “Instruments”. The Instrument API is used to implement such instruments. Instruments can track very fine-grained VM-level runtime events to profile, inspect, and analyze the runtime behavior of applications running on GraalVM.

GraalVM Tools suite contains a set of tools implemented with this Instrument API by default. To get acquainted with the instruments shipped with Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition, proceed to the Tools reference. To get started with a custom instrument implementation on top of GraalVM Enterprise, proceed to the Instrumentation reference.
