Software scalability has been a big issue recently. While modern servers are incredibly fast, many software solutions simply are not able to take advantage of it. There are many reasons for this. Some are easy to address and some require changes to the software. Intel performance engineer and Oracle WebLogic performance engineer will jointly give a talk at Oracle OpenWorld on this topic.
Here is the session information:
Title: Ten Ways to Improve J2EE Application Performance on Multi-Core Systems
Track: Oracle Develop: Enterprise Java and Oracle WebLogic
Time: 17:30 - 18:30
Venue: Hilton Hotel, Room: Yosemite B
Here is the abstract:
The current economic environment and the new focus on being green demand greater efficiency from every IT shop, big and small alike. In this session, you will learn how to improve Java application scalability by using Oracle WebLogic Server on the latest multi-core systems. It examines various software and hardware features for getting the best performance out of your applications. In particular, it explores the pros and cons of 32-bit versus 64-bit environments and how having multiple Java virtual machine instances can reduce heap pressure and improve cache locality. It also discusses operating system and hardware features such as large pages and solid-state drives and their impacts on J2EE application performance.
As a bonus, we will be giving away a Netbook at the end of the talk.
We also wrote a technical paper on the topics that will be covered in this talk. You can find this technical paper at http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/java-application-server-optimization-for-multi-core-systems/ .
