gc log analysis tools

The reason I am interested in this information is because I have a benchmark
whose score is X using 32-bit VM and 2G of heap. When I switched to 64-bit
build of the same VM, the score dropped to 0.77X with the same amount of
heap. If I increase the heap size to 3.5G (on a machine with 4GB of RAM),
the score went to to 1.40X.
What I need is pretty basic - it sums up all the gc time from the verbose
log during a benchmark run, as I want to verify if the change in gc time
correlates to the change in performance. I can write a similar script to do
that, but I just want to check to see if there is a working tool out there
already. Apparently the verbose gc log format changed from 1.5 and beyond
and the old script is not compatible.
