G1: Allow heap shrinking / memory unmapping after reclaiming regions during Remark

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
      gc
    • Resolved In Build:
      b18
    • CPU:
      generic
    • OS:
      generic

      Description

      Right now G1 can only expand the heap outside of full GC, never shrink it.

      Given that G1 does incrementally compact the heap, it might be a good opportunity to do that whenever regions are actually made available again (GC cleanup, possibly at the end of the mixed gc cycle).
