I am not really sure where to go from here. I have searched the files and have a vague idea of where it comes from.

If you can wait for build 14, you'll find that I've added


as a fix for

     6517301: There should be a -XX:+PrintGCDateStamps

which will put an ISO-8601 date and time on the GC output.  E.g.,

     2007-06-09T12:57:35.093-0700: [GC [PSYoungGen: 4064K->1552K(4928K)] 38770K->36258K(63232K), 0.0590532 secs] [Times: user=0.08 sys=0.00, real=0.06 secs]

Is that what you wanted to do?  If so, I apologize for preempting
your doing it, but we already had a bunch of customers that wanted
that feature.  (Some from large financial traders in Chicago. :-)
You wouldn't have liked it anyway, since the obvious solution of
using strftime(3C) doesn't work on Windows.
