Hi,

I am trying to understand the ouput generated from passing the following JVM parameter into our application:

-verbosegc

I haven't been able to find anywhere that tells me what the following forms of output mean?

[GC 512K->98K(1984K), 0.0009909 secs]

// Starting explicit garbage collection
// following shown from a System.gc() call.
[Full GC 371K->97K(1984K), 0.0036885 secs]

Can anyone help?

Thanks,


Stuart

Google came up with this link: http://java.sun.com/docs/hotspot/gc1.4.2/example.html
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
