    • Priority: P4
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 8-shenandoah, 11.0.9, 16, 17
    • Fix Version/s: 17
    • Component/s: hotspot
    • Subcomponent:
      gc
    • Resolved In Build:
      b10

      Description

      Shenandoah verifier uses lots of atomic operations. Unfortunately, Hotspot's default for atomic operations is memory_order_conservative, which emits two-way memory fences around the CASes at least on AArch64 and PPC64.

      In most cases, that is excessive for verifier, and "relaxed" would do.
