Subject Re: Is there any performance issue with Jrockit JVM for Hadoop
Date Sun, 10 May 2009 03:21:43 GMT
I think the upside about JRockit JVM is that it has very efficient tools for
profiling (e.g., Jrockit Mission Controller), which is very useful for
performance tuning. For SUN JVM, the profiling tools are either primitive or
very inefficient. Any lock with profiling Hadoop with SUN JVM?

Thanks,
