I am running T3.1 on a Vax8550 (~10 MIPS), the garbage collection seems
to be a little slow to me. For instance, it took about 4.6 seconds (timed by
the provided "time" form) to GC a just started T process (with 4M bytes
for each half of the heap). What I would like to know is: Is this GC speed
kind of slow or normal (or fast) ? If it is slow, why is it ? Is it
inherent because of T's data representation or what ?
I don't know. In general the GC is very slow but on a Sun 3/140 (16Mz 68020)
it took 7.2 seconds. I hope that some time someone will make the GC fast.
