Error while starting JVM

When I try to start a java application with the following JVM options:

-XX arallelGCThreads=2

the JVM doesn't get started. And when I removed either "-Xrunhprof:cpu=times" or "-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC" options, the JVM started without any error.

Is there any dependency between the above mentioned 2 options and I also found that an error message as mentioned below is displayed when both the options are provided:

Conflicting collector combinations in option list; please refer to the release notes for the combinations allowed
Unable to create JVM.

It would be of great help, if anybody could help me out in this regard.

1. I wanted the option "-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC" to be present while starting the JVM and I would also like to analyse the CPU usage.
2. I also found that after removing "-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC" option, the java application became very slower.

Have you checked the release notes for an explanation of the conflict? The message you're receiving seems quite clear: you can't run all the options you wanted at one time.

My guess is the options you want create a scoping conflict with the JVM observability features you've chosen.

Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen.

I agree. Here's the link:
