Java threads – may not be memory effecient?

Java applications tend to contain hundreds (sometimes thousands) of threads. The majority of these threads are in WAITING, TIMED_WAITING (i.e., dormant) state, while only a small portion of the threads are actively executing lines of code. So, we were curious to know whether dormant threads consume less memory than active threads.

To figure out an answer to this question, we conducted a small study. Our findings were interesting, thus sharing with you.

If you want to learn about the architecture of the application, performance characteristics of the application, effectiveness of the engineering organization – lot of times (if not all the times), we will look at the Word documents, PowerPoint decks, Excel spreadsheets that have been put together by the engineers/managers/executives of that application. In these artifacts truth can be exaggerated, truth can be untold, truth can be misstated. In some cases, it can even contain lie. What do we mean by it?
