TechCast #86 – Monica Beckwith and Jamie Allen on Java Performance Tuning

Tags: , , , , ,

On the show today, Java Performance tuning expert Monica Beckwith. Monica worked at Sun and Oracle as a performance engineer, and contributed a lot of optimizations and tuning advice to the JDK Hotspot team. She is an Performance Tuning consultant today, working on advising clients on how to best balance aspects such as throughput, latency, memory and disk management and a number of other concerns. Typesafe’s Jamie Allen and I talked to Monica before Philly Emerging Tech about what goes into identifying and correcting performance problems, and about some of the deeper details around the various garbage collector algorithms.

You can see Monica at Philly ETE, and we will provide a screencast of her presentation after the show is over.
