A High-performance Garbage Collector for Standard ML

  title={A High-performance Garbage Collector for Standard ML},
  author={John H. Reppy},
We have designed and implemented a new garbage collector for the Standard ML of New Jersey System (SML/NJ). This collector has higher performance, lower latency and generally requires less physical memory than the existing SML/NJ collector. In addition, it is able to exploit the large secondary caches found on modern workstations. This paper describes the design of the collector, and presents comparative performance data that demonstrates the above performance claims.
