the memory usage of hotspot vm itself

For GC there are data structures that the VM maintains that are
proportional to the size of the heap. For example to facilitate
young gen collections there is a card table which is used to
find references from the old generation to the young generation
and the size of the card table is proportional to the size of
the heap. Depending on the collector in use, there are
bitmaps that are also proportional to the size of the heap.
Is that what you are asking?
