Garbage collection for a client-server persistent object store
Olivier Gruber, Michael J. Franklin, Laurent Amsaleg
Pages: 153-201
DOI: 10.1145/320656.322741
We describe an efficient server-based algorithm for garbage collecting persistent object stores in a client-server environmnet. The algorithm is incremental and runs concurrently with client transactions. Unlike previous algorithms, it does...

Ace: a language for parallel programming with customizable protocols
Anne Rogers, Mukund Raghavachari
Pages: 202-248
DOI: 10.1145/320656.320657
Customizing the protocols that manage accesses to different data structures within an application can improve the performance of software shared-memory programs substantially. Existing systems for using customizable protocols are hard to use...
