This file contains the following types of records:
37

    
38
THREAD START
39
THREAD END      mark the lifetime of Java threads
40

    
41
TRACE           represents a Java stack trace.  Each trace consists
42
                of a series of stack frames.  Other records refer to
43
                TRACEs to identify (1) where object allocations have
44
                taken place, (2) the frames in which GC roots were
45
                found, and (3) frequently executed methods.
46

    
47
HEAP DUMP       is a complete snapshot of all live objects in the Java
48
                heap.  Following distinctions are made:
49

    
50
                ROOT    root set as determined by GC
51
                CLS     classes 
52
                OBJ     instances
53
                ARR     arrays
54

    
55
SITES           is a sorted list of allocation sites.  This identifies
56
                the most heavily allocated object types, and the TRACE
57
                at which those allocations occurred.
58

    
59
CPU SAMPLES     is a statistical profile of program execution.  The VM
60
                periodically samples all running threads, and assigns
61
                a quantum to active TRACEs in those threads.  Entries
62
                in this record are TRACEs ranked by the percentage of
63
                total quanta they consumed; top-ranked TRACEs are
64
                typically hot spots in the program.
65

    
66
CPU TIME        is a profile of program execution obtained by measuring
67
                the time spent in individual methods (excluding the time
68
                spent in callees), as well as by counting the number of
69
                times each method is called. Entries in this record are
70
                TRACEs ranked by the percentage of total CPU time. The
71
                "count" field indicates the number of times each TRACE 
72
                is invoked.
73

    
74
MONITOR TIME    is a profile of monitor contention obtained by measuring
75
                the time spent by a thread waiting to enter a monitor.
76
                Entries in this record are TRACEs ranked by the percentage
77
                of total monitor contention time and a brief description
78
                of the monitor.  The "count" field indicates the number of 
79
                times the monitor was contended at that TRACE.
80

    
81
MONITOR DUMP    is a complete snapshot of all the monitors and threads in 
82
                the System.
83

    
84
HEAP DUMP, SITES, CPU SAMPLES|TIME and MONITOR DUMP|TIME records are generated 
85
at program exit.  They can also be obtained during program execution by typing 
86
Ctrl-\ (on Solaris) or by typing Ctrl-Break (on Win32).
