Re: GC Help

Hohensee, Paul
Also, the server compiler makes every effort to remove zeroing fields if the constructor initializes them. Much/most zeroing ends up being elided.

    It's called -XX:+ZeroTLAB.  See also ReduceBulkZeroing.
    It may or may not be effective: zeroing at allocation time is fairly
    cache friendly, whereas zeroing when allocating a new TLAB isn't going
    to be.  Some architectures have cache-missing bulk zeroing, which
    might help.
