20 Facts about google you must know



1) The biggest irony of Larry Page and Sergey Brin’s life is that there original goal for these  two enthusiastic PH.D. Students was to to sell their Google search idea for $1 million to whoever was willing to purchase it. However, luckily for them (and us?), nobody turned up... and In the year 1997, Yahoo rejected an offer to buy Google for $1 million ,whereas Google has grown up to $200 Billion. 


2) Google was originally named Googol but when  Larry Page and Sergey Brin received their first $100,000 paycheck in the name of Google Inc. and they had to run and create a bank account for the name, so that they could cash it. Therefore, the naming ceremony was nothing but an accident.


3)Google's first ever Twitter post was as

For anyone not fluent in binary, here's a hint — it's a well known phrase from the company's homepage. Got it? Yep, it reads: "I'm feeling lucky."


4)Google estimates that the "I'm feeling lucky!" button has cost 

approximately $100 million dollars in lost ad revenue, but Google still keeps the button because the users like it.

5) Google announced its spell checker i.e. “Did you mean…” feature. This instantly doubled their traffic.



6) Google rents out goats. Yes you read that right. It rents goats from a company called California Grazing to help cut down the amount of weeds and brush at Google HQ.


7)The word Google is now a Google definition in Google dictionary


formal English word, and was included in the Oxford English Dictionary in 2006. Now, you can listen to more and more people saying “google it" used as a synonym for general web searching.


8) Many Google products originated as services provided by companies that Google has since acquired 143 one of which is deepmind a best AI company.


9) October 9, 2006, it was announced that the YouTube would be purchased by Google for US$1.65    billion (Though google has its own google vedious)


10) Some facts about YouTube.



  • More than 1 billion unique users visit YouTube each month
  • Over 6 billion hours of video are watched each month on YouTube—that's almost an hour for every person on Earth, and 50% more than last year
  • 100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute
  • 80% of YouTube traffic comes from outside the US
  • YouTube is localized in 61 countries and across 61 languages



11) The home page of google was dimple because at that time they dont know much HTML so they they designed it in simple manner.Over the years, the founders still prefer and insist to keep the home page simple and they insist that the words on the home page do not exceed 28 words.

12) Google estimates that an ad on its homepage would cost around  $10 million, but the page is still not for sale. The founders of the company want to keep the page as it started years ago.

13) Google written backwards is elgooG, but did you know you could search backwards too at http://elgoog.im

14)The private planes of Sergey Brin and Larry page land on the strips of NASA HQ, where no other planes can land. Talk about royalty -  Googlers are having the best of it.

15) Google Earth reached one-billion downloads in 2011.


 16) “(Google)…receives more than 20,000 resumes a week, or two every minute, according to Sunny Gettinger, a Google spokeswoman.”


17)  Out of which only less then 0.5% gets selected after series of 29 Interviews.


18) Employees are encouraged to use 20% of their time working on their own projects. Google News, Orkut are both examples of projects that grew from this working model.


19) 620 million users 
visit www.google.com daily. Does that number stand for half the world’s population? Maybe not, but it definitely stands for almost all the people who use the Internet.

20) Google processes around 20 petabytes 1015 or 1,000,000,000,000,000 bytes of information Data petebytes processed by google daily, which is an unbelievable number to put your mind around. The number suggests that approximately almost every person using the Internet uses Google at least once.

What are Java heap Young, Old and Permanent Generations?

The Java heap is dived into two parts i.e. Young generation and old generation. Young generationYoung generation  memory is 40% of Maximum Java Heap. It consists of two parts, Eden space and Survivor Space. Eden SpaceInitially objects are created in this  Part of Java Heap , here most objects die and quickly are cleaned up by the minor Garbage Collectors (It only runs in young generation and its frequency is high in compared to major garbage collector). Usually any new objects created inside a Java Method go into Eden space and the objects space is reclaimed once the method execution completes. Whereas the Instance Variables of a Class usually lives longer until the Object based on that class gets destroyed. When Eden fills up it causes a minor collection, in which some surviving objects are moved to Survivor Space or an older generation. Survivor Space  The pool containing objects that have survived the garbage collection of the Eden space The parameter Survivor Ratio can be used to tune…

Compression of HttpServletRequest and HttpServletResponse by gzip encoding

Description 
This filter is on HTTP headers in a HttpServletRequest, compress data written to the HttpServletResponse, or decompress data read from the request. When supported by the client browser, this can potentially greatly reduce the number of bytes written across the network from and to the client. As a Filter, this class can also be easily added to any J2EE 1.3+ web application.





Installation

1).Add the pjl-comp-filter-XX.jar file containing CompressingFilter to your web application's WEB-INF/lib directory.

2).Add the following entries to your web.xml deployment descriptor:

 <filter>
  <filter-name>CompressingFilter</filter-name>
  <filter-class>com.planetj.servlet.filter.compression.CompressingFilter</filter-class>
 </filter>

 <filter-mapping>
  <filter-name>CompressingFilter</filter-name>
  <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
 </filter-mapping>

The below data is of my application where i tested this compression technique…

4 mains causes of Long Garbage Collection Pause?

So a long GC Pause can have a direct impact on response time and throughput. But there are some causes for long GC pause which you can check and avoid to increase performance. They are as follows:-


1)Insufficient heap size:- If heap size is small then the size required then the allocation requests for new objects  fail and the JVM needs to invoke garbage collections in an attempt to reclaim space for the allocations. So these frequent Full GCs cause long pauses in the application run. To avoid long GC pause by this identify the average footprint of the application and then specify the heap size accordingly.
2)Fragmentation in the heap:-GCs can occur more frequently due to fragmentation in the Java Heap  and also sometimes causing long pauses in the GCs. This is more probable in the case of Concurrent Mark Sweep collector, also known as CMS, where the tenured generation space is not compacted with the concurrent collections.
