> A twitter engineer found a bug in the JVM that contributes to GC pause problems:
> Problem summary (in case the blog post disappears):  The JVM calculates statistics on
things like garbage collection and writes them to a file in the temp directory using MMAP.
 If there is a lot of other MMAP write activity, which is precisely how Lucene accomplishes
indexing and merging, it can result in a GC pause because the mmap write to the temp file
is delayed.
> We should implement the workaround in the solr start scripts (disable creation of the
mmap statistics tempfile) and document the impact in CHANGES.txt.
