Which JVM are we talking about here, and comparing with what ("twice as slow")?

Did you mean the Da Capo tests? I believe they do stress GC's in various ways;
whether real world, it's probably difficult to generalize, I guess....

You might also try specjbb2005 etc. from spec.org, although how realistic that
is, is also difficult (for me at least) to say.
