In my previous article, I had introduced how DevOps can play a role in JVM
troubleshooting. In this series, I would like to share a case study that we
encountered in our organization and how we isolated the issue before engaging
the right team to fix it.
One of our customers upgraded to the latest application release from previous
release and noticed a significant performance degradation in the throughput.
As a first step, we confirmed the customer claim by reproducing the reported
issue in our environment. Having a local reproduction environment opened up
opportunities to try out multiple things in narrowing down the issue. After
a preliminary analysis, we had concluded the area or component that is
contributing to the observed behavior. A workaround to overcome the issue was
identified and the same was employing a command-line parameter, which will

However, the staging or QA environment is not completely identical with
production at - least with respect to load. Due to huge load, the
application ca... (more)
