“Learn yCrash” series

The industry has seen cutting-edge Application Performance Monitoring tools and infrastructure monitoring tools. These monitoring tools are great at answering the question: 'What is the problem?'' but not, Why does the problem happen? yCrash attempts to answer this question. It captures 360-degree artifacts from your technology stack such as Garbage collection logs, thread dumps, heap dumps,... Continue Reading →

Troubleshooting HTTP 502 bad gateway in AWS EBS 

The application that we are going to discuss in this post was running on Elastic Beanstalk (EBS) service in Amazon Web Services (AWS). Intermittently this application was throwing HTTP 502 Bad Gateway error. In this post, let’s discuss how we troubleshooted and resolved this HTTP 502 bad gateway error in Elastic Beanstalk service. AWS Elastic... Continue Reading →

JVM c1, c2 compiler thread – high CPU consumption?

c1, c2 compiler threads are created by Java virtual machine to optimize your application's performance. Occasionally these threads will tend to consume high CPU. In this post, let’s learn little more about c1, c2 compiler threads and how to address their high CPU consumption. After reading this post, terminologies like Hotspot JIT, c1 compiler threads,...

Java class loading – performance impact!

java.lang.ClassLoader#loadClass() API is used by 3rd party libraries, JDBC Drivers, frameworks, application servers to load a java class into the memory. Application developers don’t use this API frequently. However when they use the APIs such as ‘java.lang.Class.forName()’ or ‘org.springframework.util.ClassUtils.forName()’, they internally call this 'java.lang.ClassLoader#loadClass()' API. Frequent usage of this API amongst different threads at runtime... Continue Reading →

Benefits of setting initial and maximum memory size to the same value

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... Continue Reading →

Memory leak due to improper exception handling

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. Technology stack This application was running on... Continue Reading →

Java UUID generation – Performance impact

Java developers tend to use 'java.util.UUID#randomUUID()' API, to generate a UUID (Universally Unique Identifier) number (i.e., 'b8bbcbed-ca07-490c-8711-5118ee0af2f9'). Under certain circumstances, using this API can affect your application’s availability. Let’s discuss this API in this post with a real-world example. How does  'java.util.UUID#randomUUID()' API works? java.util.UUID#randomUUID() API internally uses 'entropy' in the operating system to generate... Continue Reading →
