Real world Java tuning Example

Submitted by Stefan Schneider on Mon, 05/10/2010 - 22:36

 Jeff Taylor provided a nice writeup of tuning a real application using visualgc. It goes much deeper compared to the Java primer I wrote a while ago.

Jeff nicely documented the before and after tuning behavior with easy to understand screen shots. He showed as well how the application was able to use 6GB internal memory compared to 3GB before. The section about the "resident set size" of the memory is very helpful to understand the requirements for the memory needed.
