WPCI - Azul Pauseless Garbage Collection.jpg


White Paper Abstract:

Written for IT and developers, this white paper provides technical details on the operation of Zing’s garbage collector, and explains how it achieves pauseless operation. Based on the Azul C4 (Continuously Concurrent Compacting Collector) garbage collection algorithm, the Zing collector improves application performance and removes barriers to Java scalability by eliminating pause times even at very large heap sizes. Using a combination of software techniques and hardware emulation features, the Azul garbage collector uses ‘concurrent compaction’ to allow applications to continue processing while remapping memory.
