Since JDK 9, G1 GC is the default garbage collector (JEP 248). Back in 2017, with G1 GC: The Dark Horse, I shared some G1 GC details, performance tips, optimizations that help G1’s adaptiveness and provided advice on manual tuning.
Since then, G1 has come a long way in improving its adaptiveness. In this session I will cover most of the important optimizations that are delivered from JDK9+ and how they can help your application’s responsiveness, its throughput and help with footprint reduction. This is a saga that involves various regions and generations (all pun intended).
