Abstract

In this note a new dynamic on-line based technique for capturing and using heap objects properties (behaviors) is described. The properties are associated with the objects allocation sites which enable on-line adaptive changes of objects allocation polices. Among the properties that may be captured are: globallity, actual thread sharing, lifetime, locality and more. The results can be used in many types of collectors or other run time components.
