Profiling Jboss: What I Ended Up Doing

Someone suggested I try using Netbeans' performance profiler. I gave it a shot and it got the job done. 

Netbeans' profiler was able to hook into my JBoss server, that was running through Eclipse. I thought the profiler wizard setup was helpful. It asks a few questions and produces a line to paste into the to-be-profiled-application's configuration. 

That's all there really is to it. There are a few options about filtering methods and what types of profiling, e.g., memory, threads, CPU timing, etc. 

The results we found were about what we expected. It was a good exercise to refamiliarize myself with a profiler though.
