In Go, programmers don't need to worry about coding a variable's value placement in memory and space allocation. Garbage collection in Go is overseen by the memory manager. The GOGC variable is used to set a value for the initial garbage collection target percentage. Garbage collection is activated when the proportion of freshly allotted data to the live data that remains after the previous garbage collection reaches the target percentage. The default value of the GOGC variable is 100. This setting can be turned off, which stops garbage collection. The current implementation of garbage collection in Go uses the mark-and-sweep algorithm.
Some of the best practices that you can follow to improve memory management are as follows:
- Small objects can be combined into larger objects
- Local variables that have escaped from their declaration...
