JavaOne 2015 - Christine Flood - Shenandoah: An Ultralow-Pause-Time Garbage Collector for OpenJDK

Modern machines have more memory and more processors than ever. Service-level agreement (SLA) applications guarantee response times of 10 to 500 milliseconds. To meet the lower end of that goal, we need garbage collection algorithms that are efficient enough to enable programs to run in the available memory but also optimized to never interrupt the running program for more than a handful of milliseconds. Shenandoah is an open source low-pause-time collector for OpenJDK designed to meet those goals. Learn more in this session.
