A Flexible , Efficient Concurrent Garbage Collector for Speculative Thread Processors


Michael Chen and Kunle Olukotun Computer Systems Lab, Stanford University Abstract In this paper, we introduce a novel garbage collector for Java to be used for processors with speculative threads support like the Hydra chip multiprocessor (CMP). Thread speculation permits parallel execution of sections of sequential code with data dependencies enforced in… (More)
