Preferred Embodiment of a Hardware-Assisted Garbage-Collection System
Kelvin D. Nilsen
William J. Schmidt
Hardware-assisted garbage collection combines the potential of high
average-case allocation rates and memory bandwidth with fast
worst-case allocation, fetch, and store times. This paper describes
an architecture that allows memory fetch and store operations to
execute, on the average, nearly as fast as traditional memory.
It describes a feasible implementation of a garbage-collected memory
module, but does not provide a thorough discussion of possible design
alternatives, nor does it provide rigorous justification for choices
between available design alternatives.
