It is Window 2003 server.
We are running some performance test, and what we see is: 1. In first 5 hours, the page fault/sec is very small, like 10 or 20
In the last 1 hour, the page fault jumps to 500 page fault/sec
In the last 1 hour, we see the java server will stop logging anything for 6-7 seconds, and then resume back. This happened about 200 times in the last 1 hour.
We suspect it is because of JVM Garbage Collection.
What I want to know is that when JVM is doing GC, is it expected to see a big amount of page fault/sec compared to no GC?
