Understanding the Application Memory Wall

In this presentation, Gil Tene, CTO, Azul Systems, discusses the application memory wall and the likely causes of an observed, decade-long stagnation in application instance memory growth and consumption. Gil analyzes the key technical challenges that have led to the emergence of the Application Memory Wall, reviewing the relevant state of the art in garbage collection within managed run times in general, and in commercial Java Virtual Machines in particular.


Topic: Understanding the Application Memory Wall

Presenter: Gil Tene, CTO and Co-founder of Azul Systems

Abstract: The original “memory wall,” first predicted in the mid 1990s, was supposed to have emerged by now, with applications stretching server capabilities to their limits. However, today’s typical application instance only utilizes 5-10% of a modern server’s capacity, and the percentage is dropping.

In this presentation, Gil Tene, CTO, Azul Systems, discusses the application memory wall and the likely causes of an observed, decade-long stagnation in application instance memory growth and consumption.

Gil analyzes the key technical challenges that have led to the emergence of the Application Memory Wall, reviewing the relevant state of the art in garbage collection within managed run times in general, and in commercial Java Virtual Machines in particular. He also outlines the main technical problem areas that need industry attention, and shows how solving these problems can lead to a post-Wall era, an era in which applications will once again be free to productively and naturally consume the abundant compute resources available in modern servers.
