JVM performance tuning
Within a Java-based system, a lot of responsibility is put on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) to make sure the application runs smoothly and reliably. JVM performance tuning issues are therefore of paramount concern to any Java developer. Application Performance Monitoring systems, interception, triage and collection each play an important role. In this section find news, research and tutorials on how to better understand JVM performance tuning, and get tips and advice for diagnosing and fixing JVM performance tuning more effectively. The JVM must be carefully monitored and attended to for optimum performance.
