Prioritized Garbage Collection: Explicit GC Support for Software Caches.

Nunez, Diogenes.
Guyer, Samuel Z.

Programmers routinely trade space for time to increase performance, often in the form of caching or memoization. In managed languages like Java or JavaScript, however, this space-time tradeoff is complex. Using more space translates into higher garbage collection costs, especially at the limit of available memory. Existing runtime systems provide limited support for space-sensitive algorithms, for... read more
