      Description

      As load climbs, long Garbage Collection pauses are often observed on production servers, very often in the 10-30 second range, but sometimes much higher: customer have seen 180 seconds, and their system administrators report occurences of 900 seconds.

      The hardware setup for the test kit is a SUN Netra:

      bash-2.03$ uname -a
      SunOS averia 5.8 Generic_108528-23 sun4u sparc SUNW,UltraAX-i2

      bash-2.03$ psrinfo -v
      Status of processor 0 as of: 09/18/03 14:08:53
        Processor has been on-line since 09/18/03 10:34:37.
        The sparcv9 processor operates at 500 MHz,
              and has a sparcv9 floating point processor.

      CPU states: 99.2% idle, 0.0% user, 0.8% kernel, 0.0% iowait, 0.0%
      swap Memory: 2048M real, 989M free, 1493M swap in use, 1191M swap free

      Running with the following options the long pauses times are seen.
