Azul Zing JVM with Apache Ignite

Is anybody using Azul's Zing JVM with Ignite ?
How was the experience ? Does it help in some way as they claim ?

Re: Azul Zing JVM with Apache Ignite

The main advantage of Azul is support of large on-heap memory space without garbage collection pauses. In case of Ignite, the primary storage is off-heap, so garbage collection should not be an issue regardless. 

However, if you still need to use Azul JVM, I would give it a shot. The only potential issue that I can think of is Ignite's use of Unsafe class. If Azul does not support it, then you will see it right away.

Re: Azul Zing JVM with Apache Ignite

Since Azul Zing promises less than 4-5ms pause on upto 8TB of heap,  it's
okay to store data on heap and that way you can also save some efforts which
you cant when you use unsafe class with off memory.
Please let me know if someone thinks otherwise on this.

One other advantage I see is Azul Zing JVM uses Falcon JIT which uses LLVM
to generate more optimized code and that too very fast. For in-memory data
grid, since there are lot of computations involved.

Since I intend to use Ignite as embedded DB in my Web application server it
will be helpful to rely on JVM of that caliber. That's why I am interested
in getting feedback from anyone who has used it.

Re: Azul Zing JVM with Apache Ignite

You should do first a performance test with your data and our calculation using a standard vm.

Then use this as a benchmark for non-standard vms.

Do not rely on other benchmarks - different use cases and calculations.

Particularly do your own benchmark and do not listen to advertisement material.

Re: Azul Zing JVM with Apache Ignite

yeah that's right. Performance always will be subjective to the application.

I just wanted to get any feedback if at all seems to be helpful. Nothing
else.
