> The failure caused by slippage in IO operation due to file system performance. To avoid this situation we will use an unique file name for profiling dump. In this case we will have zero probability that tests would overlapped by output file. By default the file name for dump output builds from library name plus .java. prefix and .txt suffix. Hprof tool supports "file" option that used for providing the output file name. Therefore we can just add unique file name to options string for each individual tests that used hprof.
