Global garbage detection in distributed environment: an implementation for raven Devlin, Gordon
Working in a distributed environment offers challenges surpassing those of operating in a self-contained world. While references and objects can travel beyond known boundaries, it is still possible to maintain an adequate picture of the global situation: allowing identification and reclamation of unreachable objects while preventing the collection of reachable objects which are not locally referenced. This work describes the implementation of a global garbage detection scheme for Raven - an object-oriented distributed system developed at the University of British Columbia.
