Chapter 5 gives your everything about benchmarking and tuning.
M. Eisele
It starts with the canonical knowledge to work and understand the JVM, showing details from the most basic until the advanced topics.
German Gonzalez
Those new to the subject will still gain much from the book and can expect to refer to it as they work with Java.
