JDK 1.1.x: GC pauses application in an increasing manner during runtime

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • CPU:
      sparc
    • OS:
      solaris_2.6

      Description


      Customer runs the option trading application DBStar on top of Sybase Jaguar
      application server on E10K. Jaguar 3.01 embeds the JVM from JDK 1.1.8_002
      Reference Release. The clients connect mainly via IIOP.

      During a trading day, the response times of the clients happen to vary
      more and more. While initially and also at most times the response time
      is significantly below one second, it happens, that an increasing rate of
      requests show degrading performance. According to the customer the response
      time could be as bad as 15 seconds.

      Here is the customers current production setup and original complaint:

       Sun E10000
       Sybase Jaguar 3.01 EBF
       JDK1.1.8_02 Reference Release
       All required patches for Solaris 2.6

      Following is a longer list of the server access time from the client.
      The client tries every 500 ms to get new data from the server. The statistics
      show the date, the time needed for the request, a counter and the average.
      One can easily see that every 3-4 seconds it takes over 5 seconds until the
      response is received.
      This means that at this moment most time is used for garbage collection.
