Could you maybe also sent a sample header snippet?

I raised concern that each logfile segment should have enough information  
in the files to allow easy support (vm version, os version, ram/swap size,  
"PrintCommandLineFlags"(at least heap sizing and gc type), pid,  
vm-start-time, logfile-start-time)-  But I think the mail did not get  
trough the list.

It would be good if each rotated logfile contains enough information to  
find the absolute time of each event and answer all questions supporters  
will have to identify the actual run. This will also help the work of this  
list looking at erratic gc logs!
