|Title||Policy is hard to work on|
|Assigned user||Gareth Rees|
|Description||The policy parts of the MPS are hard to work on because the policy decisions are scattered across the code and so it is very hard to get an idea of what is going on. Policy decisions include:|
(a) start a collection now?
(b) extend the arena now?
(c) purge spare committed memory now?
(d) compact the arena now?
(e) condemn which segments?
(f) scan another segment now?
Noted in planning meeting .
|Analysis||A good first step would be to collect all the policy decisions into a single place, for example a new module (policy.c), without actually changing any behaviour. Then at least the scope of the problem will be clear.|
