What are the new JVM arguments introduced by Java 8?

In Java 8, PermGen space of ClassLoader is removed. It has been replaced with MetaSpace.

Now we can set the initial and maximum size of MetaSpace.

The JVM options -XX:PermSize and –XX:MaxPermSize are replaced by -XX:MetaSpaceSize and -XX:MaxMetaspaceSize respectively in Java 8.
