Exploring the Limits of Disjoint Access Parallelism

  title={Exploring the Limits of Disjoint Access Parallelism},
  author={Amitabha Roy},
The desire to extract parallelism has recently focused attention on improving concurrency control mechanisms in applications. However, programmers have few tools to help them understand the synchronisation bottlenecks that exist in their programs – for example to identify which locks are heavily contended, and whether different operations protected by the same lock are likely to conflict in practice. This kind of profiling is valuable to guide programmers in efforts towards optimising their… CONTINUE READING
