(Part 3 of 3): Synopsis of articles & videos on Performance tuning, JVM, GC in Java, Mechanical Sympathy, et al

This is a continuation of the previous post titled (Part 2 of 3): Synopsis of articles & videos on Performance tuning, JVM, GC in Java, Mechanical Sympathy, et al.

In our first review, The Atlassian guide to GC tuning is an extensive post covering the methodology and things to keep in mind when tuning GC, practical examples are given and references to important resources are also made in the process. The next one How NOT to measure latency by Gil Tene, he discusses some common pitfalls encountered in measuring and characterizing latency, demonstrating and discussing some false assumptions and measurement techniques that lead to dramatically incorrect reporting results, and covers simple ways to sanity check and correct these situations.  Finally Kirk Pepperdine in his post Poorly chosen Java HotSpot Garbage Collection Flags and how to fix them! throws light on some JVM flags – he starts with some 700 flags and boils it down to merely 7 flags. Also cautions you to not just draw conclusions or to take action in a whim but consult and examine – i.e. measure don’t guess!
