  • Java Heap Sizing in a Container: Quickly and Easily
    par Vivek Thakur le 4 novembre 2019 à 5 h 53 min

    In the previous blog, We have seen that Java has made improvements to identify the memory based on a running environment i.e. either a physical machine or a Container (docker). The initial problem with java was that It wasn't able to figure out that it was running in a container and It used to capture the memory for whole hardware where the container was running. (Please see - ttps://blogs.oracle.com/java/java-on-container-like-a-pro) Now a Java Program running in a container is able to identify the cgroup limit and assign the memory (heap) according to that, (If we do not specify the min and max heap size, which we used to define earlier). So we can run our java program in a container and utilize hardware memory properly, but can we very sure that Java program is using heap size according to cgroup definition? We have a solution to this problem as XshowSettings:category. This is a handy HotSpot JVM flag (option for the Java launcher java) is the -XshowSettings option. This option is described in the Oracle Java launcher description page as follows: -XshowSettings:category Shows settings and continues. Possible category arguments for this option include the following: all Shows all categories of settings. This is the default value. locale Shows settings related to locale. properties Shows settings related to system properties. vm Shows the settings of the JVM. [These types of flags described in the Java tech note - as https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/technotes/tools/unix/java.html ] The showSettings flag provides lots of details about the program running in that JVM, however, our interest is to find out the memory utilization so we will stick to the argument as -> -XshowSettings:vm -version Let's verify this by running a simple container program without specifying the cgroup flag (which informs java that the program is running in a Java container) (I set a container memory of 100MB and my JVM sets a max heap of 3.24G) [root java-8]# docker run -m 100MB oracle-server-jre java -XshowSettings:vm -version VM settings:     Max. Heap Size (Estimated): 3.24G     Ergonomics Machine Class: server     Using VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM   java version "1.8.0_181" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_181-b13) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.181-b13, mixed mode)   We can clearly see that Java Heap is capturing the heap available to the hardware however the docker size was specified to 100 mb only, Now let's tell Java that the program is running inside the container and see the results. With java version 1.8.0_181 (including unlock experimental version and Cgroup limit with a specification of memory 1GB MB) with only jdk Docker  [root]# docker run -m 1GB oracle-server-jre java -XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions -XX:+UseCGroupMemoryLimitForHeap -XshowSettings:vm -version VM settings:     Max. Heap Size (Estimated): 228.00M     Ergonomics Machine Class: server     Using VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM java version "1.8.0_181" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_181-b13) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.181-b13, mixed mode)   The JVM was able to detect the container has only 1GB and set the max heap to 228M, which is almost 1/4th of the total available size. We can see that the Java Heap is set to 1/4th of the docker size and rest of the 3/4th memory is utilized by docker, but what if our container doesn't require 3/4 memory,   If the container or the program configuration doesn't need that much of memory then this is not the correct utilization of memory. The ratio between Java heap and Container size is defined inside JVM code, so the question is - can we configure this ratio??  Yes, Java did a very good thing by providing another option to change the ratio of container memory and java heap size. Java introduced another flag as MaxRAMFraction ( the default value to this flag is 4, so heap size takes 1/4th of container size and we can change it by defining it explicitly) we have defined RAM fraction =2, Which settles heap size on almost 50% of the total. [root]# docker run -m 1GB oracle-server-jre java -XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions -XX:+UseCGroupMemoryLimitForHeap -XX:MaxRAMFraction=2 -XshowSettings:vm -version VM settings:         Max. Heap Size (Estimated): 455.50M     Ergonomics Machine Class: server     Using VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM java version "1.8.0_181" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_181-b13) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.181-b13, mixed mode) The heap size reaches approximately to 50% of the total container size. Now we can change the ratio as well according to our Java program comfort level, but this leads to another thought that is is safe to run a container, if we define this ratio to 1? (however JVM won't capture whole container memory and It leaves some memory to run some other container programs like container debug shell (docker exec) and diagnostics, OS processes, etc. If the program or container needs more memory under load then it will kill the container, so I feel defining the least ratio-XX:MaxRAMFraction=2 seems safe(ish), if we want to customize the default JVM ratio which seems to be the safest ratio.

  • Java on Container Like A Pro
    par Vivek Thakur le 12 septembre 2019 à 18 h 47 min

    JVM in containers Modern day software systems are moving towards containers. But there are a few important factors to understand before we move our Java/JVM based applications to containers. These factors raise questions about Java's suitability for containers. Imagine an environment in which 10 instances of an application have been deployed into a container. Suddenly the application starts throttling and falling short of the normal performance. What has happened? In order to allow multiple containers to run isolated side-by-side, we have specified it to be limited to one CPU (or the equivalent ratio in CPU shares). Unfortunately, the JVM will see the overall number of cores on that node (64) and use that value to initialize the number of default threads we have seen earlier. As started 10 instances, we end up with: 10 * 64 Jit Compiler Threads 10 * 64 Garbage Collection threads 10 * 64 …. And so on… Moreover, our application, being limited in the number of CPU cycles it can use, is mostly dealing with switching between different threads, and cannot get any actual work done. Suddenly the “package once, run anywhere" promise of containers seems violated. Before JDK 8.0_131, the core count resources were determined by sysconf. That means that whenever we run it in a container, we are going to get the total number of processors available on the system, or in case of virtual machines, the virtual system. The same is true for default memory limits: the JVM will look at the host overall memory and use that for setting its defaults. We can say that the JVM is ignoring cgroups, which causes the previously mentioned problems. Unfortunately, there is no CPU or memory namespace (also, namespaces usually have a slightly different goal), so a simple /proc/meminfo from inside the container will still show us the overall memory on the host. Java 8.0_131 - Onwards on containers! Java now supports Docker CPU and memory limits. Let us look at what “support” actually means. Please look into the Jira below, which shows the list of improvements in Java for Containers. https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8146115: Improve Docker container detection and resource configuration usage https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8196595 These changes are available in 8u192. [Released Oct 2018]   The JVM can recognize the memory and CPU configurations of the container in which it is running. For instance, if the Docker container is configured to run with 1024m of memory, the JVM can now detect that, and can in turn configure its Java heap and the sizes of its other memory pools accordingly. Therefore, to have a smaller footprint for your Docker instance, all you have to do is to control the size of that container instance. The same applies for the CPU configuration.  Focus on configuring the number of CPUs that you would like the container instance to use, and the JVM running inside it will be able to detect that configuration, and limit its CPU use to that configuration. Memory The JVM will now consider cgroups memory limits if the following flags are specified:      -XX:+UseCGroupMemoryLimitForHeap      -XX:+UnlockExperimentalVMOptions In that case, the Max Heap space (if not overwritten) will be automatically be set to the limit specified by the cgroup. As we discussed earlier, the JVM is using memory besides the Heap, so this will not prevent a user from the OOM killer from removing their containers. However, especially given that the garbage collector will become more aggressive as the Heap fills up, this is already a great improvement. CPU The JVM will automatically detect cpusets and use the specified number of CPUs for initializing the default values discussed earlier. Unfortunately, most users (and especially container orchestrators, such as DC/OS) use CPU shares as the default CPU isolation. Moreover, with CPU shares you will still end up with the incorrect value for default parameters. So what can we do? We should consider manually overwriting the default parameter    (e.g., at least XMX for memory and XX:ParallelGCThreads, XX:ConcGCThreads for CPU) according to your specific cgroup limits. Considering Non-Heap Memory in Java The JVM memory consists the following segments: Heap Memory Non-Heap Memory, which is used by Java to store loaded classes and other meta-data JVM code itself, JVM internal structures, loaded profiler agent code and data, etc. The JVM has memory other than the heap, referred to as non-heap memory. It is created at the JVM startup and stores per-class structures, such as runtime constant pool, field and method data, and the code for methods and constructors, as well as interned Strings. In previous versions of Java (before 1.8), JVM specifies a default space of 64 MB for PermGen space, which could be modified according to need for requirements over 64 MB. In Java 8, PermGen has been renamed to Metaspace, with some subtle differences. It is important to note that Metaspace has an unlimited default maximum size (-XX:MaxMetaspaceSize=?MB). On the contrary, PermGen from Java 7 and earlier has a default maximum size of 64 MB on 32-bit JVM and 82 MB on the 64-bit version. Of course, these are not the same as the initial sizes. Java 7 and earlier versions start with something around 12-21 MB of the initial PermGen space. However, MetaSize can be set, but there was a bug in Java that specified metaspacesize was not committing.  Ref https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8067100 After setting heap and MetaSpaceSize, what options are available? There is no way to limit the native memory usage of an application. After Java heap and Metaspace are allocated, a Java application is free to usewhatever left in the system memory for other native allocations. We can limit the total memory available to the container itself by configuring the total memory of the container. However, if our application extensively uses Direct memory buffers (native allocations), we can control their maximum size by using the JVM option MaxDirectMemorySize, and that, in turn, will control the size of native allocations. We can say that the problems described above are caused by the JVM ignoring cgroups. Unfortunately, there is no CPU or memory namespace (also, namespaces usually have a slightly different goal), so a simple less /proc/meminfo from inside the container will still show us the overall memory on the host.

  • Java and the New Duke Personality
    par Sharat Chander le 12 septembre 2019 à 3 h 30 min

    For 24+ years, Java technology has advanced the world we interact with every day.  With Oracle’s stewardship, Java technology continues to offer developers innovative functionality to build out the next generation of applications that bring utility to us, both personally and professionally. And during the history of Java, it’s been represented by the highly recognized Duke personality.  Back in the early days of Java development, Sun Microsystems’ Green Project team created its first working demo—an interactive handheld home entertainment controller called the Star7. At the heart of the animated touch-screen user interface was a cartoon character named Duke. The jumping, cartwheeling Duke was created by one of the team’s graphic artists, Joe Palrang. Joe went on to work on popular animated movies such as Shrek, Over the Hedge, and Flushed Away. Duke was designed to represent a “software agent” that performed tasks for the user. Duke was the interactive host that enabled a new type of user interface that went beyond the buttons, mice, and pop-up menus of the desktop computing world. Duke was instantly embraced. In fact, at about the same time Java was first introduced and the first Java cup logo was commissioned, Duke became the official mascot of Java technology. In 2006, Duke was officially “open sourced” under a BSD license. Developers and designers were encouraged to play around with Duke and for the first time had access to Duke’s graphical specifications through a java.net project. Efforts around Duke are now hosted as “Project Duke” at OpenJDK. At Oracle, we celebrate Duke, too. A living, life-size Duke was a popular feature at every JavaOne developer conference, and now at Oracle’s flagship developer event…Oracle Code One. This year, Oracle is releasing a new Duke personality that embodies the open and innovative spirit and how Java continues to propel itself into the future. Please help us welcome Cloud Surfer Duke!

  • Java Magazine on Containers
    par Yolande Poirier le 12 juin 2019 à 14 h 06 min

    By Java Magazine Editor Andrew Binstock In our previous issue, we explored the use of lightweight frameworks— Javalin, Micronaut, and Helidon—to create microservices, which typically are deployed in the cloud. In that issue’s article on Helidon, we also showed how to package a service into a Docker container for deployment. In this issue, we continue the theme by examining how to build apps with containers in mind and how to deploy containers. For straight Java apps, the jlink and jdeps tools are excellent solutions for creating modularized, small, self-contained apps. We discuss how to use those tools on page 25. If very fast startup time is a concern, then consider the GraalVM platform. It is written in Java but compiles Java code to an executable format. We’ve discussed GraalVM in past issues, but this article focuses on the latest features and their use in creating small executables with native-code startup speed. Finally, if you’re straddling the Dev and Ops sides of DevOps, you surely have seen that most containers are managed with the open source Kubernetes platform. In our lead feature, we give you a full introduction to Kubernetes and all the information you need to start working with managing your containerized apps. In addition, we explore what’s new in the recent release of Java 12, and we examine a major upgrade to Java Card, which in all senses is the very smallest container for a Java app. In addition, we have our usual quiz and our events calendar. Finally, future issues of this magazine will look materially different from what you’re used to. Please see the editorial in this issue for details […]

  • Java Magazine on Lightweight Frameworks
    par Yolande Poirier le 5 mars 2019 à 15 h 26 min

    By Java Magazine Editor Andrew Binstock  Running Fast and Light Without All the Baggage The emergence of microservices as the new architecture for applications has led to a fundamental change in the way we use frameworks. Previously, frameworks offered an omnibus scaffolding that handled most needs of monolithic applications. But as microservices have gained traction, applications now consist of orchestrated containers, each performing a single service. As such, those services require far less scaffolding—favoring instead lightweight frameworks that provide basic connectivity and then get out of the way. In this issue, we examine three leading frameworks for microservices: Javalin (page 13), which is a very lightweight, unopinionated Kotlin-based web framework; Micronaut (page 23), which handles all feature injection at compile time and so loads extremely fast; and Helidon (page 34), which is a cloud native framework that generates a pure Java SE JAR ile that can be run as a service or a complete app. Helidon comes in two flavors: a minimal framework and a slightly heftier one for developers wanting additional services.  In addition to these articles, we continue with the final installment of our series on Java design patterns—this time covering the Proxy pattern (page 53), with practical examples and coverage of the rarely discussed dynamic proxy feature in a little-used corner of the Java language. Ben Evans examines a common optimization in VMs, loop unrolling (page 62), and explains the subtle reason why loops on the JVM will execute more slowly if they’re indexed by longs rather than ints.  And of course we have our quiz—somewhat expanded for this issue (page 81)—and our book review (page 7).&nbs […]
