Invyswell: A hybrid transactional memory for Haswell's restricted transactional memory

Abstract

The Intel Haswell processor includes restricted transactional memory (RTM), which is the first commodity-based hardware transactional memory (HTM) to become publicly available. However, like other real HTMs, such as IBM's Blue Gene/Q, Haswell's RTM is best-effort, meaning it provides no transactional forward progress guarantees. Because of this, a software… (More)
