Subject Re: G1 warming on lucene wiki

Hi Jeff,

Not sure about the specific bug. But as an data point for we have run with G1 for about 5 years now
without this issue. Looking at the Bug report it is actually
a HotSpot C2 bug. If you are moving to JDK11 they are rarer
in this area as there is an consistent API for most GC work now.

Actually if you are on RedHat OpenJDK builds then ShenandoahGC
is very interesting as well. Especially regarding pausetimes.
