The x-axis of this graph, "Bytes allocated," represents object lifetimes measured in bytes allocated. The y-axis, "Bytes surviving," is the total bytes on objects with the corresponding lifetime. The left third of the graph is labeled "Minor collections." The right two-thirds of the graph is labeled "Major collections." The area below the plotted line is solid and colored blue. This area represents a typical distribution for the lifetime of objects. The area peaks sharply on the left and stretches out to the right. The graph is described further in the text that surrounds it.
