Abstract

Are you building high throughput, low latency application? Are you trying to figure out perfect JVM heap size? Are you struggling to choose right garbage collection algorithm and settings? Are you striving to achieve pause less GC? Do you know the right tools & best practices to tame the GC? Do you know to troubleshoot memory problems using GC logs? You will get complete answers to several such questions in this session.

Summary

Tuning Garbage collection for an application is both an art & science. There are 5 different GC algorithms (serial, Parallel, CMS, G1, shenandoah) and 690+ JVM settings, which makes GC tuning to be a daunting task. There are very limited high quality literature and documentations are available for GC tuning.

I written several blogs related to GC tuning, which has been published in all major developer sites such as: DZone, Infoq, theserverside.com, Developer.com…. Here are some of my articles related to this subject:

1. Reduce long GC pause (https://blog.gceasy.io/2016/11/22/reduce-long- gc-pauses/)

2. Real time greater than user + sys time (https://blog.gceasy.io/2016/12/08/real-time- greater-than-user- and-sys- time/)

3. Sys time greater than user time (https://blog.gceasy.io/2016/12/11/sys-time- greater-than- user-time/)

4. Consecutive Full GC Patterns (https://blog.gceasy.io/2016/11/22/eliminate-consecutive- full-gcs/)

5. System GC (https://blog.gceasy.io/2016/11/22/system-gc/)

6. Diagnose memory leak (https://blog.gceasy.io/2016/11/22/resolve-memory- leak/)

7. Best Practices for rotating GC Log (https://blog.gceasy.io/2016/11/15/rotating-gc- log-files/)

8. How to increase throughput? (https://blog.gceasy.io/2016/11/22/increase-throughput/)

I am a good entertaining & engaging speaker. Attendees smile, laugh & clap hands frequently in my sessions. I regularly speak at Java One and other conferences. Here are some of my talks:

Learning Outcome

In this session developers will taught on how to tune GC settings for optimal performance. They will also be introduced to industry’s best tools and practices to achieve finest performances. They will also be taught of effective patterns to be observed in GC logs to troubleshoot complex memory problems.

    Hi Ramlakshmanan, thanks for your submission. Great topic and very useful to the community.

    Please take care of the following:

    1. The links you have put above have extra spaces between the topic names. Please update them.

    2. Would you be able to combine all the 3 submissions into a 90mts talk under one topic - "Java performance tuning"? You can choose an appropriate title.
