The Art of Garbage Collector Tuning - Workshop

The Art of Garbage Collector Tuning - Workshop  
ABSTRACT
 
 
Over the past couple of years, substantial effort has been invested to continually improve the garbage collection algorithms of the Sun/Oracle JVM.  Almost every JVM release came with extensions and enhancements of existing GC techniques or added novel algorithms.  Meanwhile a Java developer has to cope with a confounding variety of garbage collectors and their countless configuration parameters. 

This workshop aims to shed some light onto the garbage collection issues in the Sun/Oracle JVM (including JVM release 7.0).  We will  explore the various garbage collectors that are available today and will discuss strategies for effective garbage collection tuning.  An example will be used to explore the tuning techniques in practice.
