6 Video: Golang's Realtime Garbage Collector

pusher.com posted by will 223 days ago  

In this talk, we’ll see how Go’s garbage collector works (the tricolor algorithm), why it works (achieving such short GC pauses), and most importantly, whether it works (benchmarking these GC pauses, and comparing them with other languages).

The talk is based on this blog post, which includes an animation of the algorithm, and more benchmark results. https://making.pusher.com/golangs-real-time-gc-in-theory-and-practice/
