Go GC

Hi, I am Okada(@ocadaruma), a member of the LINE Ads Platform team. I’ve been interested in Go’s GC (Garbage Collection or Garbage Collector) for a while, which got me even to write a post about it. Go is a programming language developed by Google and supports garbage collection. Go also supports concurrency through channels. Many companies, including Google, are using Go, and LINE also uses Go for developing tools and services.

Go GC

Using Go, you can easily develop low-latency applications. Go GC seems much simpler than the runtime of other languages. As of Go 1.10, the garbage collector for Go is the Concurrent Mask & Sweep (CMS) collector which does not compact and is not generational. This is nothing like JVM.
