  1. IBM announces version 1.2 of GCCollector (4 messages)

    IBM's alphaWorks has released version 1.2 of GCCollector, a diagnotic tool for Java garbage collection. They write, "Use this free Diagnostic Tool to help you better understand information provided by your JVM garbage collector. It will analyze critical issues in great detail such as quantities of heap memory involved, frequency of the garbage collection, time spent in different phases of garbage collection, and much more. Recently updated to manage very big heap sizes."

    It's a shame that the parser only recognizes the IBM JVM output.

    It's a shame that the parser only recognizes the IBM JVM output.

    ...but for the Sun JVM you have a related tool called visualgc that's part of the jvmstat package:

    and the GCPortal, which is even closer to IBM's GCCollector in that it also analyzes garbage collection logging output:

    ...but for the Sun JVM you have a related tool called visualgc that's part of the jvmstat package:

    It's a shame that visualgc will only run on J2SE 5.0 or later:

    A J2SE 5.0 or later JDK is required to run this tool.
    The java version found in the PATH is:
    java version "1.4.2_07"
  5. iSeries support[ Go to top ]

    Doesn't support Websphere/iSeries GC format? Any plans for parser to support iSeries VM?
