The technology for reducing garbage collection pause times is aimed at in-memory databases and other apps requiring large heaps

The technology for reducing garbage collection pause times is aimed at in-memory databases and other apps requiring large heaps

Red Hat engineers are moving forward with their Shenandoah garbage collection technology, which would give Java a boost in large-heap applications.

Proposed as an OpenJDK open source Java project last week, Shenandoah is intended to reduce garbage collection pause times. “Existing GCs show pause times of several 100ms up to several seconds on heaps [greater than] 100GB,” said Red Hat software engineer Roman Kennke, in his proposal. “That’s because they need to stop all Java threads for compacting the heap.”

Shenandoah, billed as being “an almost pause-less garbage collection algorithm,” has been in development as part of the IcedTea Java project. Shenandoah implements a new algorithm that allows for heap compaction while only stopping the Java threads briefly for root scanning; it then evacuates the heap concurrently. This makes pause times unrelated to the heap size and only proportional to the root set size, Kennke explained.

In emailed responses to questions, Kennke, who has been working on Shenandoah for two years, said the reduction in pause times would enable applications to meet stringent quality of service guarantees. Shenandoah is aimed at in-memory databases and InfiniSpan in-memory key value data store and grid systems, and a planned update to the SPECjbb2013 benchmark suite also would be a target.

“Shenandoah is a parallel and concurrent compacting garbage collector. Parallel meaning we use multiple threads to get the GC work done faster, and concurrent meaning we do work while the Java threads are running,” said Kennke, who is working on Shenandoah with Red Hat engineer Christine Flood. “We are the first collector in OpenJDK to do compaction while the Java program is running.”

Developers of Shenandoah hope to see it incorporated into the Java HotSpot VM but could offer no assurances that this would happen. Kennke also said developers are not certain yet if Shenandoah could be included in Java Standard Edition 9 in time for that release, which has been slated for a 2016 arrival.

Shenandoah is a region-based garbage collector. “It is freely available, open source, and anyone who wants to can download it,” Kennke said. “We have had several early testers.”

Microsoft unveils low-cost Surface 3 tablet

Madhees Techno Consulting Pvt Ltd

Microsoft has unveiled a low-cost version of its Surface tablet computer, cutting the screen size of the device which starts at $499.

The new Surface 3 will cost less than the $799 starting price for the Surface Pro 3 introduced last year, but will also have a less powerful processor and lack some other features.

The new device comes with a screen of 10.8 inches, making it smaller than the earlier 12-inch screen versions of Surface, and gives Microsoft a new tablet that aims to compete with Apple’s iPad Air.

“Surface 3 brings what customers love about Surface Pro 3 to more people, delivering the premium design and productivity of Surface in a more affordable device,” said Panos Panay, who heads the Surface division for Microsoft.

The new Surface will have an optional feature not available on its predecessors — the ability to connect to wireless carriers with a high-speed connection.

Microsoft touts the Surface as a tablet that can replace a laptop.

With sales topping $1 billion for the first time in the last quarter of 2014, analysts said the tablet appeared to be swinging to profitability.
