Hi everybody,
I'm working on a project at my university, and
therefore have to implement a distributed garbage
collection algorithm that collects objects in a
shared memory environment.

Ideally it should have the following prperties:

 - collect most garbage fast and 
   without expensive commonication

 - eventually collect all garbage

 - run concurrently to the mutators

 - do not use read/write locks on objects

 - collect unneeded replicas of objects

The DSM will be using an invalidate protocoll.

Communication is assumed safe (TCP/IP with no
crashing sites).

I couldn't find anything appropriate online so far.

Any tips, ideas, references ?

Thank you very much in advance.
