Containers and Micro-service are like peanut butter and jelly, they just go together. However do you know how resources are managed in a container and how that affects your application. This session will dive into how Java is affected living under control groups.

This session will review containers, the underlying technology to containers along with different container runtimes such as Docker. We will look at the anatomy of a container including control groups (cgroups) and namespaces. This session will conclude with the challenges of running the JRE in a container and the impact that has on the efficiency of the process at scale.

This session will include container friendly changes to Java 9 around memory and ergonomics. It will also provide advice on how to get consistent CPU share.
