In a multi-threaded computing environment, a shared cache system reduces the amount of redundant information stored in memory. A cache memory area provides both global readable data and private writable data to processing threads. A collection mechanism monitors the amount of cache memory available to the processing threads. In particular, a collector thread is executed when needed to reclaim least recently used cache memory.
