Garbage Collection (GC) is an integral part of application behavior on Java platforms, and developers need to understand how selecting and tuning collector mechanisms can affect runtime performance, scalability, and reliability.


This white paper

  • reviews common garbage collection techniques and algorithms
  • defines terms and metrics common to all collectors including generational, parallel, stop-the-world, incremental, concurrent, and mostly-concurrent
  • provides examples of how certain choices can result in impressive application behavior
