class G1CollectedHeap;

// Class for monitoring logical spaces in G1. It provides data for
// both G1's jstat counters as well as G1's memory pools.
// G1 splits the heap into heap regions and each heap region belongs
// to one of the following categories:
// * eden      : regions that have been allocated since the last GC
// * survivors : regions with objects that survived the last few GCs
// * old       : long-lived non-humongous regions
// * humongous : humongous regions
// * free      : free regions
// The combination of eden and survivor regions form the equivalent of
// the young generation in the other GCs. The combination of old and
// humongous regions form the equivalent of the old generation in the
// other GCs. Free regions do not have a good equivalent in the other
// GCs given that they can be allocated as any of the other region types.
// The monitoring tools expect the heap to contain a number of
// generations (young, old, perm) and each generation to contain a
// number of spaces (young: eden, survivors, old). Given that G1 does
// not maintain those spaces physically (e.g., the set of
// non-contiguous eden regions can be considered as a "logical"
// space), we'll provide the illusion that those generations and
// spaces exist. In reality, each generation and space refers to a set
// of heap regions that are potentially non-contiguous.
// This class provides interfaces to access the min, current, and max
// capacity and current occupancy for each of G1's logical spaces and
// generations we expose to the monitoring tools. Also provided are
// counters for G1 concurrent collections and stop-the-world full heap
// collections.
// Below is a description of how the various sizes are calculated.
// * Current Capacity
//    - heap_capacity = current heap capacity (e.g., current committed size)
//    - young_gen_capacity = current max young gen target capacity
//          (i.e., young gen target capacity + max allowed expansion capacity)
//    - survivor_capacity = current survivor region capacity
//    - eden_capacity = young_gen_capacity - survivor_capacity
//    - old_capacity = heap_capacity - young_gen_capacity
//    What we do in the above is to distribute the free regions among
//    eden_capacity and old_capacity.
// * Occupancy
//    - young_gen_used = current young region capacity
//    - survivor_used = survivor_capacity
//    - eden_used = young_gen_used - survivor_used
//    - old_used = overall_used - young_gen_used
//    Unfortunately, we currently only keep track of the number of
//    currently allocated young and survivor regions + the overall used
//    bytes in the heap, so the above can be a little inaccurate.
// * Min Capacity
//    We set this to 0 for all spaces.
// * Max Capacity
//    For jstat, we set the max capacity of all spaces to heap_capacity,
//    given that we don't always have a reasonable upper bound on how big
//    each space can grow. For the memory pools, we make the max
//    capacity undefined with the exception of the old memory pool for
//    which we make the max capacity same as the max heap capacity.
// If we had more accurate occupancy / capacity information per
// region set the above calculations would be greatly simplified and
// be made more accurate.
// We update all the above synchronously and we store the results in
// fields so that we just read said fields when needed. A subtle point
// is that all the above sizes need to be recalculated when the old
// gen changes capacity (after a GC or after a humongous allocation)
// but only the eden occupancy changes when a new eden region is
// allocated. So, in the latter case we have minimal recalcuation to
// do which is important as we want to keep the eden region allocation
// path as low-overhead as possible.
