Timing Failures Caused by Resource Starvation in Virtual Machines

Authors:
Sune Jakobsson

Keywords: Java virtual machines; garbage collection; application servers; resource starvation.

Abstract:
This paper discusses cascading effects of resource starvation in virtual machines, and how that affects end-user experiences in certain cases. The paper presents the occurring issues on an N-tier server system, and the way the starvation causes unexpected delays in a service for an end-user. The initial observations were on unexpected communication delays, and by using a simplified test system, this behaviour can be confirmed. The delays can traced back to memory management in the individual servers, causing the timing failures.
