I did some testing with id=7068625¡¯s patch. Sun6u25 with hotspot20 VS Sun6u25 with hotspot20+patch, the results show as follow.

1.       Special case

I designed a special example, creating 30 large arrayes of 500 m. Because of the small young gen(384m), these arrays will be allocated in the old gen. Then i create many small objects, leading to frequently young gc. The result shows as follows, young gc performance improves 5 times.

2.       GCbench

I download GCBench.java from http://code.google.com/p/hotpy/source/browse/trunk/benchmarks/java/GCBench.java, and change kStretchTreeDepth    = 25, kLongLivedTreeDepth  = 22, kMaxTreeDepth = 25; the result shows as follows

Summary

1.       if a large heap is allocated in Old Gen and there are no or very few references from Old Gen to Young Gen, the patch improves gc performance a lot.

2.       Generally, Such as GCbench, SPECJVM2008 and specjbb2005, the patch improves a little with proper ParGCCardsPerStrideChunk, but maybe bad a little with improper ParGCCardsPerStrideChunk.

3.     this patch maybe is effective to app which allocates big heap and old gen is big

Chengtao
