This is a lab attached to the 'Software Performance' course. The lab studies performance in the context of one particular system, Jikes RVM, a Java-like virtual machine that is itself implemented in Java. To gain an in-depth understanding of the performance-relevant aspects of a virtual machine, the lab uses and extends Jikes RDB, a debugger that allows inspecting the complete internal state of the Jikes RVM.
