Garbage Collection (GC)
With any addition of parallelism, the dependency on efficient memory management increases to avoid memory bottlenecks that limit performance. Increasing performance without affecting the responsiveness of the Java VM to user applications is a difficult problem. With memory management acting as a background process, one must be careful to not interfere with user applications at undesirable times. This research stream studied and developed support for efficient Garbage Collection (GC) within the Java VM.
