You will use isLoggable() to avoid calling heavy logging process, which could have an impact on performance. For example, looping through a List and logging its content. You want to do it only if the logging level is lower than the level you are using.
Logger logger = Logger.getLogger("com.mycompany.MyClass");
if (logger.isLoggable(Level.FINEST)) {
for ( int i = 0; i < biglist.size(); i++ ) {
// loop through the list and do some other logging stuff. May take a few minutes

You don't need to use isLoggable() if the logging does not impact on performance. So in your case logger.finest("count: "+count); is ok.
You will have to set the logging level in a property file, which will determine of the "count" will be logged or not.
