The Performance Paradox of the JVM: Why More Hardware Means More

The Performance Paradox of the JVM: Why More Hardware Means More


As computer hardware gets cheaper and faster, administrators managing Java based servers are frequently encountering serious problems when managing their runtime environments. JVM handles the task of garbage collection for the developer - cleaning up the space a developer has allocated for objects once an instance no longer has any references pointing to it. Some garbage collection is done quickly and invisibly. But certain sanitation tasks, which fortunately occur with minimal frequency, take significantly longer, causing the JVM to pause, and raising the ire of end users and administrators alike.

Read this Expert Tip to better understand the JVM performance problem, how the JVM manages memory and how best to approach JVM Performance.
