Remedy AR System Server
When using -XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC with ARServer, JDK 11.0.2 reports that Option UseConcMarkSweepGC was deprecated in version 9.0 and will likely be removed in a future release
This is an INFO message and not a problem to be concerned with
In JDK 11, UseConcMarkSweepGC still out performs G1GC for AR Server with regard to average use case times (avg AR API time) and heap reclaim (ratio of available heap).
No meaningful deprecation was done so UseConcMarkSweepGC is still fully functional.
In BMC in-house testing with workload generation to accurately reflect real-life usage, a comparison between UseConcMarkSweepGC and G1GC showed that G1GC had approximately 10% worse average use case times, slightly heavier CPU usage (less than 5% as measured using OS tools), lower heap availability, but faster heap reclaim. So BMC continues to recommend UseConcMarkSweepGC with ARServer.
