Squeezing blood from a stone: small-memory JVM techniques for microservice sidecars
Reducing service memory usage from 500MB to 105MB:
We found two specific techniques to be the most beneficial: turning off one of the two JIT compilers enabled by default (the “C2” compiler), and using a 32-bit, rather than a 64-bit, JVM.

Ag: faster than Ack
Some nice performance tricks; I particularly like the use of sljit:
Ag uses Pthreads to take advantage of multiple CPU cores and search files in parallel.
Files are mmap()ed instead of read into a buffer.
Literal string searching uses Boyer-Moore strstr.
Regex searching uses PCRE's JIT compiler (if Ag is built with PCRE >=8.21).
Ag calls pcre_study() before executing the same regex on every file.
Instead of calling fnmatch() on every pattern in your ignore files, non-regex patterns are loaded into arrays and binary searched.

PCRE Performance Project
Excellent stuff. Using "sljit", a stackless platform-independent JIT compiler, this compiles Perl-compatible regular expressions to machine code on ARM, x86, MIPS and PowerPC platforms, resulting in 'similar matching speed to DFA based engines (like re2) on common patterns' with Perl compatibility. 'This work has been released as part of PCRE 8.20 and above. Now (PCRE 8.31), nearly all PCRE features are supported including UTF-8/16 and partial matching.'
