You can trigger a young generation GC prior to a full GC with:
To enable this option for JVM:
Enables GC of the young generation before each full GC. This option is enabled by default. It is recommended that you don't disable it, because scavenging the young generation before a full GC can reduce the number of objects reachable from the old generation space into the young generation space. To disable GC of the young generation before each full GC, specify the option -XX:-ScavengeBeforeFullGC. As a result of using this option, we can improve garbage collection performance as it will not need to check for references between the young and old generation heap spaces.
Default value is false
