I use CLHSDB for knowing the internal structure of HotSpot since I work on
it and I need to understand how it works. I also use jstack(-F,-m),
jmap(dump heap) and CLHSDB(attach core file) to solve  problems. I hope SA
could be more stable and there could be more documents. Most material
about SA I can get is from the blog of
Kris(, which is written is Chinese.

Mainly Linux/x64.
