Explain Serial Garbage Collector in Java.
Serial garbage collector works by holding all the application threads. It is designed for the single-threaded environments. It uses just a single thread for garbage collection. The way it works by freezing all the application threads while doing garbage collection may not be suitable for a server environment. It is best suited for simple command-line programs.
Run with -XX:+UseSerialGC JVM argument to use the serial garbage collector.
Serial GC is recommended for client-style applications that do not have low pause time requirements.
