Garbage Collection Pause Times
October 13th 2015 15:50 - 16:40
A JVM’s Garbage Collector is responsible for finding unreachable objects and releasing their memory so that the application does not run out of memory. Historically, the key concern related to GC was throughput, i.e., the ratio of time spent in GC to time spent in the application’s actual functionality. Basically, we did not want to waste precious time with garbage collection.
