GC heuristics to use. This fine-tunes the GC mode selected, 
by choosing when to start the GC, how much to process on each

Possible values are:

at all times, even during the GC cycle;
 static - trigger GC when free heap falls below the threshold;
 aggressive - run GC continuously, try to evacuate everything;
 compact - run GC more frequently and with deeper targets to 
free up more memory.

How much garbage a region has to contain before it would be 
taken for collection. This a guideline only, as GC heuristics

garbage. This also affects how much internal fragmentation the 
collector accepts. In percents of heap region size.
share/gc/shenandoah/shenandoah_globals.hpp
ShenandoahGuaranteedGCIntervaluintxgc5*60*1000experimental

time from active application. Time is in milliseconds. 
Setting this to 0 disables the feature.

share/gc/shenandoah/shenandoah_globals.hpp
ShenandoahPacingIdleSlackuintxgc2
range(0, 100)

How much of heap counted as non-taxable allocations during idle

idle, requiring less rendezvous with control thread. Lower 
value makes the pacing control less responsive to out-of-cycle 
allocs. In percent of total heap size.
share/gc/shenandoah/shenandoah_globals.hpp
ShenandoahPacingMaxDelayuintxgc10experimental
Max delay for pacing application allocations. Larger values 
provide more resilience against out of memory, at expense at 
hiding the GC latencies in the allocation path. Time is in 
milliseconds. Setting it to arbitrarily large value makes 
GC effectively stall the threads indefinitely instead of going 
to degenerated or Full GC.
share/gc/shenandoah/shenandoah_globals.hpp
ShenandoahPacingSurchargedoublegc1.1

ShenandoahUncommitDelayuintxgc5*60*1000experimental
Uncommit memory for regions that were not used for more than 
this time. First use after that would incur allocation stalls. 
Actively used regions would never be uncommitted, because they 
do not become unused longer than this delay. Time is in 
milliseconds. Setting this delay to 0 effectively uncommits 
regions almost immediately after they become unused.
share/gc/shenandoah/shenandoah_globals.hpp
ShenandoahUncommitboolgctrueexperimental

ThreadPriorityPolicyintxruntime0
range(0, 1)

0 : Normal. 
 VM chooses priorities that are appropriate for normal 
 applications. On Solaris NORM_PRIORITY and above are mapped 
 to normal native priority. Java priorities below 
 NORM_PRIORITY map to lower native priority values. On 
 Windows applications are allowed to use higher native 
 priorities. However, with ThreadPriorityPolicy=0, VM will 
 not use the highest possible native priority, 
 THREAD_PRIORITY_TIME_CRITICAL, as it may interfere with 
 system threads. On Linux thread priorities are ignored 
 because the OS does not support static priority in 
 SCHED_OTHER scheduling class which is the only choice for 
 non-root, non-realtime applications. 

1 : Aggressive. 
 Java thread priorities map over to the entire range of 
 native thread priorities. Higher Java thread priorities map 
 to higher native thread priorities. This policy should be 
 used with care, as sometimes it can cause performance 
 degradation in the application and/or the entire system. On 
 Linux/BSD/macOS this policy requires root privilege or an 
 extended capability.
