RFR(S): 8213086: Compiler thread creation should be bounded by available space in memory and Code Cache

Hi Vladimir,

thank you for reviewing so quickly.

unallocated_capacity() doesn't return 0. If SegmentedCodeCache is off, the code cache gets initialized for CodeBlobType::All (codeCache.cpp:1088). Given that, CodeHeap::accepts always returns true (heap.hpp:203) and CodeCache::get_code_heap returns the single heap correctly.

But I'm not sure about AOT. Do you know if using CodeCache::unallocated_capacity(CodeBlobType::MethodNonProfiled) is ok if Graal is used?

Best regards,

So the issue was / 200*M vs correct / (200*M). Thank you for finding and fixing this.

About taking into account sizes of segmented CodeCache. If segmentation is off (-XX:-SegmentedCodeCache) 
unallocated_capacity() will return 0:


You need to take that into account.
