Selecting JFR Events
JFR (presently) supports approximately 77 events. Many of these events are periodic events:
they occur every few milliseconds (e.g., the profiling events work on a sampling basis). Oth-

event for reading a file is triggered only if the read() method has taken more than some spe-
cified amount of time).
