- Understanding Application Hiccups: An Introduction to the Open Source jHiccup Tool - In this Webcast, Gil Tene (CTO, Azul Systems) will introduce simple, non-obtrusive methods for measuring and characterizing platform "hiccups" during application execution. Using the new jHiccup open source tool, Gil will demonstrate and chart commonly observed behaviors of idle, mostly idle, and busy systems, as well as common workload types that experience outliers due to garbage collection pauses and other runtime-induced delays.
- The Java Evolution Mismatch: Why you need a better JVM - Functionality is great, but what about performance? Java started life as a toy platform and quickly became an enterprise tool. Early on, evolution in performance and scalability went hand in hand with functionality improvements. However, virtually all subsequent improvements to the Java platform were in features and scope, with basic performance remaining largely unchanged. The result is that modern Java apps are powerful and flexible, but their performance can be iffy. Application instances now have a hard time consuming even a small fraction of entry level modern servers without incurring unacceptable and detrimental effects. In this 25-minute Webinar, Azul CTO Gil Tene explains how the Zing Java runtime platform eliminates the evolution mismatch and allows enterprises to consistently and reliably power their applications, making full use of modern server capabilities.

Azul CTO Webinar Series
- Elasticity and Smooth Scalability for Java Deployments - Resource elasticity is important for both the efficiency and resilience of modern applications. However, today's dominant application runtimes (such as the Java Virtual Machine) are currently built to be inherently rigid in memory resources. In this webinar, Gil Tene, CTO, Azul Systems, Inc. discusses the need for elastic resource consumption and management. Gil also details how Memory Elasticity can now be seamlessly brought to Java applications, making them naturally elastic, resilient, and good citizens for elastic and cloud environments.
- Java GC and the Application Memory Wall » The "memory wall", first predicted in the mid 1990's in a paper titled "Hitting the Memory Wall: Implications of the Obvious", was supposed to have emerged by now. However, the typical application instance still only utilizes 5-10% of a modern server's capacity, and the percentage is dropping. In this Webinar, Gil Tene (CTO, Azul Systems) will introduce the notion of the Application Memory Wall, and discuss the dominant factors limiting the scale and performance of modern server application instances. Gil will show how GC behavior has come to dominate application scale and architecture decisions, highlight the resulting constraints and challenges in effectively utilizing current- generation servers, and discuss innovations that may make the 'Application Memory Wall' disappear in the near future.
- Java GC and the Application Memory Wall, Part 2: In this second of a three-part webinar series, Gil Tene (CTO, Azul Systems) analyzes the key technical challenges that have led to the emergence of the Application Memory Wall. Gil reviews the state of the art in garbage collection within managed runtimes in general, and in commercial Java Virtual Machines in particular. The focus is on the limitations and likely causes of the observed decade-long stagnation in application instance memory growth and consumption. Gil outlines the main technical problem areas that need industry attention and focus, 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.
- Java GC and the Application Memory Wall Part 3 - In this third of a three-part webinar series, Gil Tene (CTO, Azul Systems) examines practical solutions to the Application Memory Wall problem. Gil shows how solving the key technical limitations that lead to the decade-long stagnation in application memory instance growth can lead to the 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.
- Java without GC pauses: Moore's Law and living in a virtualized world » Commodity memory and compute capacities have far outpaced the ability of Java platforms to consume them effectively. Application instances are able to utilize only a small and shrinking fraction of a common server's abilities before responsiveness, consistency and service level issues become hard to bear. The behavior of Garbage Collection is at the heart of this accelerating trend, and new trends towards virtualized systems and Cloud deployments can be viewed either as further threats, or as opportunities for innovative solutions to a lingering problem. In this webinar, Gil Tene (CTO, Azul Systems) will detail the practical considerations & limitations of current garbage collected systems, discuss the importance of solving the GC problem once and for all at enterprise scale, explain how virtualization technologies can actually be used to deliver a robust solution, and lead us to a Java world with no more GC pauses.
- Overcoming Common Pitfalls in Java Application Characterization » If you've ever tried to model the impact of variable transaction response times on your business-critical application (or your bottom line) -- you know that few tools are available that provide a complete view of a running system. In addition, terms like average response time and three, four, or even five nines can mask problems that can't be addressed at the application level -- because their cause may be the JVM. In this Webinar, Gil Tene, Azul Systems CTO, will take you through a series of key concepts that will help you better describe -- and better understand what is happening at runtime.
- Pauseless Garbage Collection and Its Impact » In this Webinar, Gil Tene, Azul Systems CTO, outlines exactly how Azul is able to deliver a truly pauseless garbage collection (GC) that is otherwise transparent to the production software stack, and deployed on commodity Intel hardware.
