JVM Runtime Metrics: Optimized Resource Usage

Change effective on 08 November 2022

The JVM Runtime Metrics feature has been updated to consume fewer dyno resources.

In our testing we observed the following improvements:

  • ~550 fewer loaded classes
  • ~500KiB less heap used
  • ~2000KiB less metaspace used
  • ~2000KiB reduced slug size
  • 1 less thread spawned (saving ~512KiB of stack memory)

No customer action is required. Applications using an official Heroku JVM buildpack (heroku/jvm, heroku/java, heroku/gradle, heroku/scala or heroku/clojure) will get the improved JVM agent the next time the app is rebuilt.
