Go 1.9 的 GC 改善

Update:被提醒後仔細看了一下,是 1.8 預設生效 (但保留選項切回來 debug),如果沒問題的話 1.9 把舊的方式拔乾淨:

Assuming things go smoothly, we will remove stack re-scanning support when the tree opens for Go 1.9 development.

標題就不改了... 以下原文。

在「Sub-millisecond GC pauses」這邊看到的。Golang 想辦法將 GC 造成的影響降低:「Proposal: Eliminate STW stack re-scanning」。

目標是解決最大的 GC pause 來源:

As of Go 1.7, the one remaining source of unbounded and potentially non-trivial stop-the-world (STW) time is stack re-scanning.

然後拿新的解法來戰,目前初步的測試看起來可以降到 50µs (== 0.05ms):

We propose to eliminate the need for stack re-scanning by switching to a hybrid write barrier that combines a Yuasa-style deletion write barrier [Yuasa '90] and a Dijkstra-style insertion write barrier [Dijkstra '78]. Preliminary experiments show that this can reduce worst-case STW time to under 50µs, and this approach may make it practical to eliminate STW mark termination altogether.

在「runtime: eliminate stack rescanning · Issue #17503 · golang/go」這邊可以看到進度,現在已經在 master branch 上了,看起來會在 1.9 的時候被放出來... 不過 worst case 的時間上修了 XDDD

The high level summary is that this reduces worst-case STW time to about 100 µs and typical 95%ile STW time to 50 µs (assuming, of course, that the OS doesn't get in the way and that the system isn't otherwise overloaded).

但看起來應該還是很大的效能改善,尤其是 CPU bound 的應用?
