Object Sharing in Pfair-scheduled Multiprocessor Systems

  title={Object Sharing in Pfair-scheduled Multiprocessor Systems},
  author={Philip Holman and James H. Anderson},
We consider various techniques for implementing shared objects and for accounting for objectsharing overheads in Pfair-scheduled multiprocessor systems. We primarily focus on the use of lock-free objects, though some lock-based alternatives are briefly considered as well. Lock-free objects are more economical for implementing relatively simple objects such as buffers, stacks, queues, and lists; locking techniques are preferable for more complicated objects and for sychronizing accesses to… CONTINUE READING
