Examining Java Performance With Standard Benchmarks

Tue 21.03.2017, 16:00, 60 minutes
Computer Science Building, (Science Park 3) room 318


Standard benchmarks (e.g. DaCapo, ScalaBench, SPECjvm, SPECjbb) are often used to examine performance of JVM tools or JVM modifications. Unfortunately, because both the benchmarks and the environment are complex, it is not very clear what conclusions can be reliably drawn from simple measurements. We provide some information comparing the expectations and reality, based on our experience from using standard benchmarks to track one year progress in the development of Graal, an aggressively optimizing JIT compiler for the JVM.


Petr Tuma is an associate professor with the Department of Distributed and Dependable Systems of Charles University, Prague. His research focuses on performance evaluation of modern computer systems, including the design and implementation of measurement tools and methods for processing of measurement data.
