      Description

      Currently G1 assigns a thread per failed evacuated region. This can in effect serialize the whole process as often (particularly with region pinning) there is only one region to fix up.

      Try to improve parallelism when walking over the regions by e.g. recording potential entry points with live object starts when evacuation failure happens for sub-areas of the region during evacuation failure handling.

      Note that the BOT should NOT be used as it is not created for young gen regions; using it would recreate it at that point which is basically a full region walk.


      Latest implementation scans regions in chunks to bring parallelism, it's based on JDK-8278917 which changes to uses prev bitmap to mark evacuation failure objs.



      (I can not upload the attachments.)
      Here's the summary of performance data based on latest implementation, basically, it brings better and stable performance than baseline at "Post Evacuate Cleanup 1/remove self forwardee" phase. (Although some regression is spotted when calculate the results in geomean, becuase one pause time from baseline is far too small than others.)

      The performance benefit trend is:
       - pause time (Post Evacuate Cleanup 1) is decreased from 76.79% to 2.28% for average time, from 71.61% to 3.04% for geomean, when G1EvacuationFailureALotCSetPercent is changed from 2 to 90 (-XX:ParallelGCThreads=8)
       - pause time (Post Evacuate Cleanup 1) is decreased from 63.84% to 15.16% for average time, from 55.41% to 12.45% for geomean, when G1EvacuationFailureALotCSetPercent is changed from 2 to 90 (-XX:ParallelGCThreads=<default=123>)
      ( Other common Evacuation Failure configurations are:
      -XX:+G1EvacuationFailureALot -XX:G1EvacuationFailureALotInterval=0 -XX:G1EvacuationFailureALotCount=0 )


      (unit is ms, please ignore the too precise float number, I guess it should be due to copying from excel)
