What is a V8 Engine?
How does the V8 Engine works?
Node.Js and V8
This V8 engine is at the heart of Node.js. The diagram compares the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), which is used to power the Java Runtime environment with the V8 engine. The Node.js runtime environment includes several Node APIs to power the Node.js environment in addition to the V8 engine. We can enhance the functionality of our node code by installing extra npm packages.
Relation between Node.Js and V8
Memory limit of V8 in Node.js
Currently, V8 has a RAM limit of 512MB on 32-bit computers and 1GB on 64-bit platforms by default. This limit can be increased by setting –max-old-space-size to a maximum of ~1gb for 32-bit and ~1.7gb for 64-bit systems. If you’re running out of memory, it’s a good idea to break your single process into numerous workers.
Can Node.js work without V8?
