JVM Garbage Collection in 2018
The first in a series of interactive events to discuss the state of garbage collection in 2018. This will be run in a fishbowl style with a number of people experienced in the subject including Martijn Verburg, Richard Warburton and John Oliver. *** This is a placeholder for the event which is being run on Eventbrite. See the full details and register here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/jvm-garbage-collection-in-2018-tickets-45209863920 *** Some of the questions we will look to discuss will include: 1. Have there been any major Garbage Collection changes in Java 9? 2. When should you think about Garbage Collection tuning your application rather than undertaking other performance improvements? 3. What are the different collectors available in OpenJDK/Oracle JDK and when should you think about selecting a different collector? 4. What options are Garbage Collection performance improvement options beyond OpenJDK/Oracle JDK? 5. How do I get Garbage Collection information out of the JVM and in what format? Does this process impact / harm my application? 6. What tooling can help me interpret the data? 7. What are some go-to resources for understanding how Garbage Collection works in Java? *** This is a placeholder for the event which is being run on Eventbrite.
