Subject Re: full gc too often
Date Fri, 05 Dec 2014 04:41:43 GMT
I have two kinds of machine:
16G RAM, with default heap size setting, about 4G.
64G RAM, with default heap size setting, about 8G.

These two kinds of nodes have same number of vnodes, and both of them have
gc issue, although the node of 16G have a higher probability  of gc issue.

Thanks,
Philo Yang
