High Garbage Collection in 7.1.4

After installing the Field Security Plugin on my test 7.1.4 environment, which is using Java 8, I'm seeing a lot of garbage collection.

Additionally, in my 6.2.7 environment, I was seeing high thread counts. When investigating this with Atlassian, they said that the thread count issue was being caused by the FS plugin.

Are these known issues? I didn't see any other forum posts about them.

Hi Matt,

Of course JFS uses additional memory and produces some garbage while working. It is recommended to increase Java heap size to at least 2G with JFS. Also JFS for JIRA prior to 7.0 utilizes additional thread pool for internal needs.

However, the question is - does this garbage collection of additional threads affect normal JIRA operations?
