  due to fragmentation (holes) within the heap where G1 can not
allocate into, the usage (inverse of the space G1 can actually allocate
into) can be higher than what is actually allocated (i.e. live

This may also explain the premature garbage collection, i.e. where Eden
is much smaller than expected before GC (there are other reasons,
including bugs, but without more detailed log output you can't tell).

A frequent cause for this can be humongous objects. Consider increasing
heap region size in this case (it seems to be 2M on your heap right
now), to 4M or even 8M. Use -XX:G1HeapRegionSize=xx to do this.
