Subject "Full GC" vs regular GC?
Date Thu, 13 Apr 2006 17:54:23 GMT
Can somebody tell me what the difference is between a "full GC" and a 
regular "GC"?  Here's an excerpt from my jakarta-service log, when I 
have the verbose gc option set.  You can see that the total memory used 
drops hugely.  I was intentionally letting my app continue to run to see 
what would happen when I got close to my max memory setting, and all 
that happened is that I got that "Full GC".  Up until then, I thought I 
had a slow (a few bytes per request) memory leak, but could not find 
it.  Now I can see that maybe I don't have one after all?
