Following up on a mail discussion called "jstat LGCC column shows" on
this mailing list. Yasumasa Suenaga has agreed to contribute the patch
that he made to the OpenJDK project. I am helping him to get it pushed
into the OpenJDK repositories.
We created bug 7015169 for this issue. It is not available on
http://bugs.sun.com yet, but I hope it gets published there soon.
To push we need a couple of reviews. Here is the webrev:
The problem was that _gc_cause was not set by all VM_GC_Operation that
can request a GC. This was visible through jstat and with Yasumasa's fix
the LGCC columns shows the correct GC cause.
