Abstract

Conventional cache memories act to bridge the gap in speeds between the processor and main memory. However, typical cache hardware takes no account of the specific characteristics of object-oriented programs, as a consequence it may incur a performance penalty. In this paper, we discuss how such a device can be designed to support Java objects. This feature is especially useful in the field of real-time programming, where cache determinism is a limiting factor in performance. In order to do that, we propose an object layout which splits objects into the same sized blocks to avoid external fragmentation while minimizing internal fragmentation
