Hi, Thilina, thanks for being interested. The most known GC
visualization tool is GCspy [1][2]. It has been working well with some
JVM implementations. So GCspy is a very good reference for Harmony.
Since GCspy is released under a BSD-like license, we can reuse its
client part and also the protocol. We could write our own tool from
the scratch, but I think it's unwise at the moment.
