GCViewer is a free open source tool to visualize data produced by the Java VM options -verbose:gc and -Xloggc:. It also calculates garbage collection related performance metrics (throughput, accumulated pauses, longest pause, etc.). This can be very useful when tuning the garbage collection of a particular application by changing generation sizes or setting the initial heap size. See here for a useful summary of garbage collection related JVM parameters. For more information on tuning garbage collection on Sun JVMs, take a look at the documentation provided by Sun.
• Sun JDK 1.4/1.5 with the options -Xloggc: [-XX:+PrintGCDetails]
• Sun JDK 1.2.2/1.3.1/1.4 with the option -verbose:gc
• IBM JDK 1.3.1/1.3.0/1.2.2 with the option -verbose:gc
Best results are achieved with: -Xloggc: -XX:+PrintGCDetails
GCViewer can also export the data in CSV (comma separated values) format, which may easily be imported into spreadsheet applications for further processing.
