What are the Garbage Collection (GC) log, Thread Dump, and Heap Dump in the Java Virtual Machine (JVM)? In this article let us try to understand these 3 critical artifacts, where to use them, how does it look, how to capture them, how to analyze them and their differences.
In this article, Ram Lakshmanan shares a few tips to tune G1 Garbage collector to obtain optimal performance that are simple, yet effective. Tune your application to get optimal performance with these tips, methods, and explanations. G1 has been the default GC algorithm since Java 9.
If you’re running into issues with Garbage Collection tuning, this session is the right one for you. Ram Lakshmanan, founder of popular DevOps tools such as GCeasy.io, fastThread,io, and HeapHero.io leads a crash course in GC tuning and troubleshooting that boils it down to simple, common sense.
There are already a bunch of tools on the market to help manage your apps. So, why do you need a garbage collection specific one? In this article, Ram Lakshmanan explains how garbage collection log analysis is important for the health and efficiency of your apps.
Oracle’s plans to modernise garbage collection in Java 9 have raised many questions. Uwe Schindler describes what exactly the G1 collector means for Java developers.
Alex Zhitnitsky is back to chat about java performance and debunking the stuff that you think you know about garbage collection. Read on for some serious trash-talking.
The performance tuning world is a dangerous place says Alex Zhitnitsky, who takes a look at how garbage collection affects java performance. Read on to understand what you’re up against, possible solutions and other alternatives available to you.
Why do traditional cache semantics sometimes struggles to scale, and what can we do about it?
Shenandoah, proposed to OpenJDK, can handle heaps larger than 100GB with sub-10ms pause times.
Ruben Badaro provides a crash course in monitoring garbage collection in production systems
If you wanna know what your garbage collector is up to, the best place to look is in the GC logs. That said, the GC logs are like any other ascii log file in that they can be full of 1000s of cryptic entries which make trying to figure out what the logs are saying without any tooling, a daunting task. In this session Kirk Pepperdine (Kodewerk Ltd) introduces Censum, a free tool designed to help you make sense out of your log files. Some of what Censum can tell you is if your JVM’s heap is misconfigured. For example, a large number of applications currently running in products systems are starved for memory, in at least one of their internal memory pools. But it’s not only starvation that can a cause of poor performance or long GC pauses. Too much memory can be equally

Continuing our new series, we chat to jClarity’s CEO Ben Evans about their nine month-old startup devoted to helping Java technologists get the performance tools they deserve.
A new tool promises to track your leaks down to exact line in the source code, with minimum overhead.
