To clarify, the AppD agent monitors the Garbage Collection metrics and reports the results in the "Memory" dashboard. The agent does not trigger major or minor garbage collections. The JVM will do this automatically, influenced by the memory-related configuration parameters specified at JVM startup. The agent will passively collect and report metrics that expose the behavior of the JVM.
