I was recently considering trying out the new G1 garbage collector, see if it was any better than current real time CMS garbage collector. A concurrent soft real-time garbage collector that can compact? Awesome! I switched one of my production applications to use the new G1 garbage collector and noticed a spike in CPU and […]

I hate expired sessions, death to all expired sessions. Traditionally a Java servlet container has a fixed session time, a flood of traffic can potentially cause JVM OOM errors if the session time is set too high. I wanted a smart session container that can hold onto sessions for as long as possible and expire […]

Since wicket sessions can vary greatly in size, using the standard memcached server implementation became impractical due to the slab allocator. The current code on github lacks the ehcache store and an Actor IoHandler adapter. The […]

I am about to run out the house for the Labor Day weekend, quickie post on my new coding url strategy.

OpenSolaris uses a single-threaded malloc by default for all applications. The JDK that is compiled for Solaris fails to be linked against mtmalloc or the newer umem malloc implementation that is multithread optimized. In a multithreaded application using a single threaded malloc can degrade performance. As memory is being allocated concurrently in multiple threads, all the […]
