Dealing with asymmetry in the architecture opens a plethora of questions from the perspective of scheduling task-parallel applications for which there exist early ad-hoc strategies embedded into an asymmetry-conscious runtimes. In this paper we take a different path that addresses the complexity of the problem at the library level, via a few asymmetry-aware(More)
The use of automatic memory management in object-oriented languages like Java is becoming eagerly accepted due to its software engineering benefits, its reduction in programming time and safety aspects. Nevertheless, the complexity of garbage collection results in an important overhead for the virtual machine job. Until now, the strategies in garbage(More)
A first-rate e-Health system saves lives, provides better patient care, allows complex but useful epidemiologic analysis and saves money. However, there may also be concerns about the costs and complexities associated with e-health implementation, and the need to solve issues about the energy footprint of the high-demanding computing facilities.

Modern embedded devices (e.g., PDAs, mobile phones) are now incorporating Java as a very popular implementation language in their designs. These new embedded systems include multiple applications that are dynamically launched by the user, which can produce very energy-hungry systems if the interactions between the applications and the garbage collectors(More)
Nowadays, Java is used in all types of embedded devices. For these memory-constrained systems, the automatic dynamic memory manager (Garbage Collector or GC) has been always a key factor in terms of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) performance. Moreover, in current embedded platforms, power consumption is becoming as important as performance. Thus, in this(More)
ded devices. This research has been mainly performed in the JVM. More specifically, it has focused on optimizing the execution time spent in the automatic object reclamation or Garbage Collector (GC) subsystem, which is one of the main sources of overall performance degradation of the system. However, the increasing need for power efficient systems limits(More)
