A computer implemented method, apparatus, and computer program product for managing just-in-time compilation. The process designates a set of compilation threads for exclusively performing compilation functions associated with an application. A set of computation threads is designated for executing the application. Processor cycles are dynamically allocated during runtime between the set of compilation threads and the set of computation threads to maintain a ratio of processor cycles consumed by the set of compilation threads to processor cycles consumed by the set of computation threads.
