Abstract

We investigate the impact of Operating System’s Virtual Memory Managers (VMMs) on performance of enterprise applications. By taking various popular branches of the Linux kernel and modifying their VMM settings, one can see the effects it introduces on ECPerf J2EE Benchmark. JBoss application server is used to run ECPerf. Our tests show that even the change of one parameter in VMM can have significant performance impacts. Performance of various kernel branches is compared. Parameter sensitivity and influence of specific settings are presented.
