Is there any command line tool for monitoring the heap size usage of Java in CentOS?

Use jps and jstack to learn more about Java processes. jstat can also be useful for Java statistics monitoring.

You probably want to analyse the memory usage.

GCView might help you visualize what the GC-log shows.

If you already enabled the gc-log you could just use tail -f on that log.

jvmtop is a command-line tool which provides a live-view at several metrics, including heap.

Example output of the VM overview mode:

 JvmTop 0.3 alpha (expect bugs)  amd64  8 cpus, Linux 2.6.32-27, load avg 0.12
