Prioritized Garbage Collection: Explicit GC Support for Software Caches.

Nunez, Diogenes.

Guyer, Samuel Z.

Berger, Emery D.


  • 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
