Busting 4 Java tuning myths with Stefano Doni

Ascolta “Busting 4 Java Tuning Myths with Stefano Doni” su Spreaker. In this PurePerformance episode, Stefano Doni (Akamas CTO) illustrates how some established industry approaches and beliefs about Java Tuning are actually myths: 1) Garbage Collector tuning: do the industry guidelines

Akamas JVM tuning optimization choose the right GC
Make sure to choose the right GC for your application to achieve maximum performance

The Java platform continues to be developed and improved over time. The OpenJDK community has been quite active in improving the performance of the JVM and the garbage collector (GC): new GCs are being developed and existing ones are constantly

AKamas Java tuning short blanket blog
Java application throughput, response time, and cost. Is there a short blanket?

Developers and system owners usually take for granted that there are some intrinsic tradeoffs in the Java design. For example, it is commonly accepted that if you aim at reducing resource usage (e.g. CPU), you must accept some performance degradation.

Beware: improving GC performance may lead to slower applications

One of the most established approaches to improve Java application performance is to tune JVM options, in particular Garbage Collector (GC) parameters.  Indeed, the main task of garbage collection is to free memory up which requires stopping the application threads
