if the young generation is too small that it can't afford space for
survivors and it have to throw them to old generation. and jvm found this,
it will turn down TenuringThreshold ?
I set TenuringThreshold to 10. and found that the full gc is less
frequent and every full gc collect less garbage. it seems the parameter
have the effect. But I found the load average is up and young gc time is
much more than before. And the response time is also increased.
I guess that there are more objects in young generation. so it have to
do more young gc. although they are garbage, it's not a good idea to
collect them too early. because ParNewGC will stop the world, the response
time is increasing.
So I adjust TenuringThreshold to 3 and there are no remarkable
maybe I should use object pool for my application because it use many
large temporary objects.
Another question, when my application runs for about 1-2 days. I found
the response time increases. I guess it's the problem of large young
in the beginning, the total memory usage is about 4-5GB and young
generation is 100-200MB, the rest is old generation.
After running for days, the total memory usage is 8GB and young
generation is about 2GB(I set new Ration 1:3)
I am curious about the heap size adjusting. I found –XX:MinHeapFreeRation
the default value is 40 and 70. the memory manage white paper says if
the total heap free space is less than 40%, it will increase heap. if the
free space is larger than 70%, it will decrease heap size.
But why I see the young generation is 200mb while old is 4gb. does the
adjustment of young related to old generation?
I read in
generation should be less than 512MB, is it correct?
