How to understand GC (Garbage Collection) log?

It doesn't contain tiemlines. Suppose, thread count in my application was at high at a particular time, how can I figure out the root cause for it?

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

It does have timelines of event. Following is a piece from GC log:



It says, GC cycle started Wed Feb 3 16:37:29 2010.

Can anyone recommend a good, easy to understand GC log analyser tool? Thanks.

Found this, this and this on Google. Not sure which one or if any one is easy to use / understand.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
