Hi Bengt,

Well, that's already done and it did improve things.

argv[21]: -XX:+ParallelRefProcEnabled
argv[22]: -XX:ParallelGCThreads=48

before -XX:+ParallelRefProcEnabled was set the stop times were in the range of 20 to 60 seconds.
The application is a Cacao by Oracle. So they cannot change it.

Thanks and Regards
