Short-term memory for self-collecting mutators
We propose a new memory model called short-term memory for managing objects on the heap. In contrast to the traditional persistent memory model for heap management, objects in sho...

Multicore garbage collection with local heaps
In a parallel, shared-memory, language with a garbage collected heap, it is desirable for each processor to perform minor garbage collections independently. Although obvious, it i...

Memory management in NUMA multicore systems: trapped between cache contention and interconnect overhead
Multiprocessors based on processors with multiple cores usually include a non-uniform memory architecture (NUMA); even current 2-processor systems with 8 cores exhibit non-uniform...

Waste not, want not: resource-based garbage collection in a shared environment
To achieve optimal performance, garbage-collected applications must balance the sizes of their heaps dynamically. Sizing the heap too small can reduce throughput by increasing the...

A comprehensive evaluation of object scanning techniques
At the heart of all garbage collectors lies the process of identifying and processing reference fields within an object. Despite its key role, and evidence of many different impl...

On the theory and potential of LRU-MRU collaborative cache management
The goal of cache management is to maximize data reuse. Collaborative caching provides an interface for software to communicate access information to hardware. In theory, it can o...
