Subject [jira] [Created] (GEODE-1017) change off-heap memory from compaction to coalesce
Date Sat, 27 Feb 2016 01:15:18 GMT
Karen Smoler Miller created GEODE-1017:

             Summary: change off-heap memory from compaction to coalesce
                 Key: GEODE-1017
             Project: Geode
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: offheap
            Reporter: Karen Smoler Miller

Replace references to off-heap space compaction with *coalesce*, because we do not do any
compaction.  Our memory management does a coalesce when it needs to combine adjacent fragments. defines compaction: ". .
.the process of moving allocated objects together, and leaving empty space together."  We
do not move allocated chunks, so implying we do is misleading.

At the very least, all outward facing statistics should be renamed.  Better would be to rework
any code that uses compaction where it actually refers to a coalesce.
