Scailing Java Applications


Mike Youngstrom
 

Love this feature! Thanks JBP team!

Now I have to try really hard to find something in the JBP to complain
about. :)

When deploying a Java application to Cloud Foundry the Java memory

weighting during staging. This means that, unlike other apps, if the
application is scaled to give it more memory it needs to be *restage*d it
to get updated Java memory settings. This has now been improved with an
improved memory calculator written by Steve Powell[2]. The Memory
Calculator[1] will be run during every application start to ensure the
application gets up-to-date memory settings, its output is shown during
staging.

Then scaling the application to double the memory will result in new
memory settings without having to restage the application.

cf scale my-application -m 1G

-Xmx768M -Xms768M -XX:MaxMetaspaceSize=104857K -XX:MetaspaceSize=104857K
-Xss1M


This new feature is currently available on the master branch of the
buildpack [3] and will be released in due course.

thanks steve! that's a nice addition to the java buildpack. i think all
java developers have experienced the pain of managing memory explicitly
with -X and -XX args at one point or another. having built-in sane defaults
that auto-adjust is hopefully one less thing java developers have to worry
about when using the java buildpack.
