JVM garbage collection trace

Anyone knowing how to trace/log the Garbage Collecting done by the JVM?

I know you have to set -verbose:GC in the startup file for the Server-process, but in which logfile(s) can you see the outcome?

Best regards

Have you seen note 723909?

You can also use the -Xloggc parameter to tell the JVM to write the GC data to a certain file, the format is:


Do a find/search for this file name after restarting the JVM..
