Parameters for HotSpot debugging options (e.g. OnOutOfMemoryError="....")

What sort of "%x"-type parameters are applicable to the various HotSpot debugging options that take such parameters?

E.g. I've seen mentions that the "-XX:OnOutOfMemoryError="<cmd args>;<cmd args>" option uses "%p" as a template, and substitutes the PID of the process. But this isn't documented in the page where the HotSpot options are documented (

Where are the various %x parameters documented (what HotSpot options recognize these parameters, what they mean, etc.)?
