Description
Improve the performance of the parallel reference processing so that it can
be used by default in the parallel collectors.  Extend the usage of the parallel
reference processsing to all the collectors.

Comments
EVALUATION The implementation has been refactored and extended/generalized to all parallel collectors by ###@###.### (see suggested fix section for relevant URL's/webrev etc.). However, it is not enabled by default because of the somewhat large fixed overheads. A suitable dynamic heuristic should be implemented for turning on this functionality on-the-fly as beneficial.

SUGGESTED FIX The following fix was putback to 7.0 gc_baseline and is expected to integrate into main/baseline likely (i believe) around the 7.0 b11 time-frame:- Event: putback-to Parent workspace: /net/jano.sfbay/export/disk05/hotspot/ws/main/gc_baseline (jano.sfbay:/export/disk05/hotspot/ws/main/gc_baseline) Child workspace: /net/prt-web.east/prt-workspaces/20070312144034.ap159146.gc_baseline_sync/workspace (prt-web:/net/prt-web.east/prt-workspaces/20070312144034.ap159146.gc_baseline_sync/workspace) User: ap159146 Comment: --------------------------------------------------------- Job ID: 20070312144034.ap159146.gc_baseline_sync Original workspace: spb-east:/scratch/users/ap159146/gc_baseline_sync Submitter: ap159146 Archived data: /net/prt-data.east/archives/main/gc_baseline/2007/20070312144034.ap159146.gc_baseline_sync/ Webrev: http://analemma.sfbay.sun.com/net/prt-archiver.sfbay/data/archived_workspaces/main/gc_baseline/2007/20070312144034.ap159146.gc_baseline_sync/workspace/webrevs/webrev-2007.03.12/index.html Fixed 6417901: Generalize parallel reference processing to all collectors. webrev at: http://javaweb.sfbay/~ap159146/6417901/ Reviewed by: John, Jon, Ramki Fix verified (y/n): y Verification testing: - runThese; - refworkload; - PRT; - a bunch of manually written tests; Other testing: Details: I've updated the fix upon review comments and did another round of testing.
