We do not recommend automatically upgrading to the latest JRE without checking the recommendations in this article. As new versions of Oracle's JRE are released, we may recommend upgrading to a new version.
- The GNU C library (glibc) is also improved with time, and may be updated. This article also provides recommendations for the version of glibc, even though it is not strictly tied to the kernel version.
Increasing the RAM available to your enterprise server may improve performance under certain circumstances.
