Hi Lokesh --
AFAIR, it's just a historical artifact. (Jon, Peter or John will probably
know for sure.)
If the perm gen card-scanning task is queued first, its longer latency
will usually be hidden behind the parallel old gen scanning tasks. My guess
is that with the sizes of
perm gen that it was tested with, this didn't matter, and may be it now
does with the sizes you are
looking at? This may become moot with the new perm-gen-less meta-data
space, where perhaps
a different parallel (?) mechanism will be employed for scanning these
"roots into young".
Have you obtained data with +PrintGCTaskTimes (or such) that indicates that
