  • Several hybrid transactional memory (HyTM) schemes have recently been proposed to complement the fast, but best-effort nature of hardware transactional memory with a slow, reliable software backup. However, the costs of providing concurrency between hardware and software transactions in HyTM are still not well understood. In this paper, we propose a general model for HyTM implementations, which captures the ability of hardware transactions to buffer memory accesses. The model allows us to… CONTINUE READING
