Verbosegc in Java VM logs | HCL Digital Experience

Verbose garbage collection (verbosegc) logging is often required when tuning and debugging many issues, and has negligible impact on system performance.

The default HCL installation enables verbosegc logging and configures the following generic JVM argument:

-Xverbosegclog:${SERVER_LOG_ROOT}/verbosegc.m%d.5/10/13M%S.%pid.txt,20,10000

The verbosegc log file name is verbosegc.m%d.5/10/13M%S.%pid.txt. It includes a date/time stamp and the process ID (PID) of the HCL instance.

The default HCL installation redirects the verbosegc output to 20 rotating historical log files, each containing 10000 garbage collection (GC) cycles.
