Every so often I come across the document: Tuning Garbage Collection from Sun (, and I attempt to read all of it. The document is kind of hard to digest, so this time I created an outline of the Tuning Garbage Collection on the Java 1.4.2 Hotspot JVM document. I simply removed all the prose, and was left with a bullet list of the handy facts.

Amazing. This outline makes the GC document about 10x easier to deal with! I'm going to use this outline as a resource in my daily work.
