Note how the minor collection takes high GC times. it takes as high as 204 seconds. We are using the default GC also both for the old generation and the young generation. Our heap sizee when the tomcat starts is bounded by 256 MB on the lower side to 778 MB on the higher side. I am unable to understand what would cause tomcat to do GC for such a long time esp in the young generation. what is even more wierd is that the time between consecutive GC for young generation is almost equal to time for which the GC happened . what would cause the young generation to fill so quickly. Anyone has any ideas what is going on ? -Akash
