Recent Advances in Distributed Garbage Collection

Abstract : We have described a detector of distributed cycles of garbage. Our cycle detector presents some interesting properties for large-scale systems: asynchrony between participating spaces, optional participation, tolerance to communication faults and space crashes, low resource requirements, and ease of implementation (no modifications to local objects, only a few to the local garbage collector). Moreover, this algorithm has already been implemented in a distributed system, and the implementation details can be found in le Fessant
