# Oracle Java as default, uses the serial garbage collector on the
# Full Tenured heap. The Young space is collected in parallel, but the
# Tenured is not. This means that at a time of load if a full collection
# event occurs, since the event is a 'stop-the-world' serial event then
# all application threads other than the garbage collector thread are
# taken off the CPU. This can have severe consequences if requests continue
# to accrue during these 'outage' periods. (specifically webservices, webapps)
# [Also enables adaptive sizing automatically]

# This is interpreted as a hint to the garbage collector that pause times
# of <nnn> milliseconds or less are desired. The garbage collector will
# adjust the Java heap size and other garbage collection related parameters
# in an attempt to keep garbage collection pauses shorter than <nnn> milliseconds.

# 1 / (1 + GCTimeRation) of the application execution time be spent in
