Statistically rigorous java performance evaluation
Java performance is far from being trivial to benchmark because it is affected by various factors such as the Java application, its input, the virtual machine, the garbage collector, the heap size, etc. In addition, non-determinism at run-time causes the execution time of a Java program to differ from run to run. There are a number of sources of non-determinism such as Just-In-Time (JIT) compilation and optimization in the virtual machine (VM) driven by timerbased method sampling, thread scheduling, garbage collection, and various system effects. There exist a wide variety of Java performance evaluation methodologies used by researchers and benchmarkers. These methodologies differ from each other in a number of ways. Some report average performance over a number of runs of the same experiment; others report the best or second best performance observed; yet others report the worst. Some iterate the benchmark multiple times within a single VM invocation; others consider multiple VM invo...
