In this paper we investigate how performance and speedup of applications would be affected by using non-blocking rather than blocking synchronisation in parallel systems. The results obtained show that for many applications, non-blocking synchronisation lead to significant speedups for a fairly large number of processors, while it never slows the applications down. As part of this investigation this paper also provides a set of efficient and simple translations that show how typical blocking… CONTINUE READING
