What does Force garbage collection mean in JIRA

What does Force garbage collection mean in JIRA.

By opting for force garbage collection will I loose any useful data. Which data comes under the garbage. Can anyone give me a detail of it.

 

Thanks in advance.

FYI, I don't have any idea on JAVA that's the reason I came to community for help.

Java processes all need memory to run in, so they take some and use it.  When they end, the memory is littered with objects that the JVM does not automatically know what to do with, so it leaves them alone.  Garbage collection is the process of looking at all of them and throwing away the ones that are definitely not needed, freeing up the memory for new processes.

You won't lose any data or much else by forcing a garbage collection, it is purely about cleaning the memory of the java virtual machine.

No, the JVM does it automatically when it needs to.  The button is there for the odd time memory might be a problem and you do it as a debugging thing.
