What I've found is that the format changes in GC logs for the G1 collector has yet again changed in the _40 release. While I appreciate the need for good GC logging, the constant changes combined with bugs (aka, missing tokens or differences such as sec and secs) makes it very difficult to maintain tools (for something that is already overly challenging to tool). I know that the need to fix GC logging has been put off for one reason or another in the past.. but we're at the beginning of the life-cycle for the G1. Can we not use this opportunity to create logs that are easier to parse?
