************************************
Akiban Persistit - 3.1.6
************************************

Release Date
=============
August 24, 2012

Overview
=========
This version of Persistit fixes one bug.

See http://www.akiban.com/akiban-persistit for a summary of features and
benefits, licensing information and how to get support.

Documentation
==============
Users Guide: http://www.akiban.com/ak-docs/admin/persistit
JavaDoc: http://www.akiban.com/sites/all/libraries/persistit-api/index.html

Building Akiban-Persistit
==========================
Use Maven (maven.apache.org) to build Persistit.

To build:

  mvn install

The resulting jar files are in the target directory. To build the Javadoc:

  mvn javadoc:javadoc

The resulting Javadoc HTML files are in target/site/apidocs.

Building and Running the Examples
---------------------------------
Small examples are located in the examples directory. Each has a short
README file describing the example, and an Ant build script
(http://ant.apache.org). After building the main akiban-persisit jar file using
Maven, you may run:

  ant run

in each of the examples subdirectories to build and run the examples.

Buffer Pool Configuration
==========================
For optimal performance, proper configuration of the Persistit buffer pool is
required. See section "Configuring the Buffer Pool" in the configuration
document http://www.akiban.com/ak-docs/admin/persistit/Configuration.html

NOTE: Especially when used with multi-gigabyte heaps, the default Hotspot
JVM server heuristics are be suboptimal for Persistit applications. Persistit
is usually configured to allocate a large fraction of the heap to Buffer
instances that are allocated at startup and held for the duration of the
Persistit instance. For efficient operation, all of the Buffer instances must
fit in the tenured (old) generation of the heap to avoid very significant
garbage collector overhead. Use either -XX:NewSize or -Xmn to adjust the
relative sizes of the new and old generations.
