If you are asking about the columns in each record, check the header
line which should have been printed earlier. If you use a more recent
JVM (hs18) you should see the column headings printed more frequently
than the sole initial appearance in the log produced by older jvm's.

For background on biased locking and associated flags, and what
is involved in bias revocation etc, read

Experiment with -XX:-UseBiasedLocking if it's not working well for
you, or if it is interfering with your predictability
objectives (read the article for when biased locking may not work well
and how it may affect predictability), and contact your
Java support for further tuning help, questions, to report a
performance bug, etc.

all the best.
