That's not correct; the set of GC algorithms available for server and
client are identical, but the default heap sizes are different.

For initial problem analysis, turn on -verbose:gc if you haven't
already, and use JConsole to look at the heap usage.  You may need a
profiler to find out just what objects are hanging around and causing
the long pause.

You might want to try running with a later JVM - a 1.5 or 6 version
should give you reduced pause times as well as better performance
