I have no opposition to oVirt developers using JProfiler themselves, but
I would not like to see it become a key piece of the project's
infrastructure, because it is not open source.
I also do not like the idea of promoting JProfiler, a proprietary tool,
on the oVirt website.
However, if the board members decide that this is appropriate, then we
can do this.
Perhaps the oVirt team at Red Hat can purchase the can opener^H profiler
tool, use it, and report the results on the wiki (where the results are
open and free under the Apache license.)
As an open community infrastructure geek, I'm extremely wary of any
non-open tools in the chain. It's like conducting science that others
can't verify themselves. It also makes it harder to run for a volunteer
infrastructure team, where skills are usually learned on freely
available open source instances.
