Exploring JRuby performance on HotSpot?

I'm not sure anyone has a lot of extra time to dedicate to this though
I'm happy to help interpret your results if you provide more detail
about what's happening. I think looking at the LogCompilation results
to figure out what's getting inlined and whether predicted call sites
are playing a part would be a good first step. In our current system
the effects of profiling can sometimes be unstable and the performance
difference can be great in those cases. Have you looked at the
results of any profiling tools? If you have any egregious examples
that you can't make sense of I could take a quick look at that to see
what I see.
