Find CPU, memory, and IO bottlenecks, broken down by method name, class name, and line number, to significantly reduce end-user latency and infrastructure costs.
Continuous profiler is designed to run in production across all services by leveraging technologies such as JDK Flight Recorder to have minimal impact on your host’s CPU and memory usage.
Profiling your service to visualize all your stack traces in one place takes just minutes.

The Getting Started with Profiler guide takes a sample service with a performance problem and shows you how to use Continuous Profiler to understand and fix the problem.
After you’ve configured your application to send profiles to Datadog, start getting insights into your code performance:
Use tags to search profiles across any dimension—whether it’s a specific host, service, version, or any combination.
Obtain key profiling metrics from services such as top CPU usage by method, top memory allocations by thread, and CPU usage by version to visualize in your dashboards.
Application processes that have both APM distributed tracing and continuous profiler enabled are automatically linked, so you can move directly from span information to profiling data on the Code Hotspots tab to find specific lines of code related to performance issues.
Comparing similar profiles from different times, environments, or deployments can help you understand the possible causes of and solutions to performance problems. The Datadog profiler offers comparison visualizations to make sense of why profiles are different based on time frames or tags that you scope by.
