Generating Object Lifetime Traces With Merlin

Hertz, Matthew; Blackburn, Stephen; Moss, J Eliot B; McKinley, Kathryn; Stefanovic, Darko


Programmers are writing a rapidly growing number of programs in object-oriented languages, such as Java and C#, that require garbage collection. Garbage collection traces and simulation speed up research by enabling deeper understandings of object lifetime behavior and quick exploration and design of new garbage collection algorithms. When generating perfect traces, the brute-force method of computing object lifetimes requires a whole-heap garbage collection at every potential collection point...[Show more]
