Android, JVM Heap dump analysis doesn’t have to be done manually (painfully) anymore. You can programmatically analyze Heap dumps through our REST API. Below are the few use cases where our heap dump analysis REST APIs used by major enterprises.Continue reading “HEAP DUMP ANALYSIS API”
There are a good number of articles that articulate functional differences between HashMap, HashTable and ConcurrentHashMap. This post compares the performance behavior of these data structures through practical examples. If you don’t have patience to read the entire post, here is bottom line: When you confront with the decision of whether to use HashMap or HashTable or ConcurrentHashMap, you can consider using ConcurrentHashMap since it’s thread-safe implementation, without compromise in performance.Continue reading “Java Hashtable, HashMap, ConcurrentHashMap – Performance impact”
When we launch applications, we specify the initial memory size and maximum memory size. For the applications that run on JVM (Java Virtual Machine), initial and maximum memory size is specified through ‘-Xms’ and ‘-Xmx’ arguments. If Java applications are running on containers, it’s specified through ‘-XX: InitialRAMPercentage’ and ‘-XX: MaxRAMPercentage’ arguments. Most enterprises set the initial memory size to a lower value than the maximum memory size. As opposed to this commonly accepted practice, setting the initial memory size the same as the maximum memory size has certain ‘cool’ advantages. Let’s discuss them in this post.Continue reading “Benefits of setting initial and maximum memory size to the same value”
In this post let’s discuss an interesting memory problem we confronted in the production environment and how we went about solving it. This application would take traffic for a few hours after that it would become unresponsive. It wasn’t clear what was causing the unresponsiveness in the application.Continue reading “Memory leak due to improper exception handling”

I am slightly hesitant to write this post, as it might attract some criticism. Nevertheless, I told myself there is nothing wrong with sharing my point of view (even though it might not be well accepted). I would like to share my personal experience regarding yesterday’s Monolithic and today’s Microservice architecture in this post.Continue reading “Is today’s microservice more bloated than yesterday’s monolith?”
