Spider Monkey Garbage Collection

Jon Coppeard provides some background on garbage collection in general, and what makes it challenging to implement a collector that performs well in practice. He then discusses the recent work to reduce pause times and improve responsiveness with incremental collection, and describes the ongoing work to implement exact routing, which will allow us to build a generation collector in the future.
