Comprehensive distributed garbage collection in object-oriented distributed systems has mostly been addressed via distributed versions of graph{tracing algorithms, a legacy of centralised garbage collection techniques. Two features jeopardise the scalability of these approaches: the bottleneck associated with having to reach a global consensus before any(More)
Global Garbage Detection (GGD) in object-oriented distributed systems requires that each application process maintains some information in support of GGD. Maintaining this information is known as log-keeping. In this paper we describe a low-overhead, log-keeping mechanism which proceeds lazily and avoids race conditions while nevertheless maintaining enough(More)
