"You can rarely compensate at a higher level for delays introduced by a lower level, so if you try to solve variability only at the application level, you may merely shift JVM or OS delays around without solving the real problem. Fortunately, the latencies for lower levels tend to be relatively shorter than the ones at higher levels, so only if your requirement for reducing variability is extremely high do you need to look lower than the JVM or the OS. If your requirements aren't quite so high, you can probably afford to focus your efforts at the JVM level and in your application."
