Implementing Garbage Collection in the PerDiS System

  title={Implementing Garbage Collection in the PerDiS System},
  author={Xavier Blondel and Paulo Ferreira and Marc Shapiro},
We describe the PerDiS persistent distributed store and its garbage collection algorithm. The PerDiS store behaves like an object-oriented persistent shared memory, and is accessed transactionally. Applications get direct access to persistent data in their own memory, and use the usual C/C++ pointer dereferencing and assignment to navigate and modify the object graph. PerDiS provides persistence by reachability based on the Larchant algorithm. We focus on the issues of implementation for large… CONTINUE READING
