Visualization of a GC pause



Frame time histogram of 150 4x4 matrix multiplications per frame at 60fps on Firefox trunk 2009-04-10.

Time advances from left to right, each pixel being 16 ms. Each black bar is a frame. The height of a black bar is the time that frame took, 1 ms / pixel.

The tall bars are what's making smooth animations difficult.
