Get Lower Latency and Higher Throughput for Java Applications

Getting the best performance out of your Java applications can often be a challenge due to the managed environment nature of the Java Virtual Machine and the non-deterministic behaviour that this introduces. Automatic garbage collection (GC) can seriously affect the ability to hit SLAs for the 99th percentile and above. This session will start by looking at what we mean by speed and how the JVM, whilst extremely powerful, means we don’t always get the performance characteristics we want. We’ll then move on to discuss some critical features and tools that address these issues, i.e. garbage collection, JIT compilers, etc. At the end of the session, attendees will have a clear understanding of the challenges and solutions for low-latency Java.
