Staring into the Abyss: An Evaluation of Concurrency Control with One Thousand Cores

  title={Staring into the Abyss: An Evaluation of Concurrency Control with One Thousand Cores},
  author={Xiangyao Yu and George Bezerra and Andrew Pavlo and Srinivas Devadas and Michael Stonebraker},
Computer architectures are moving towards an era dominated by many-core machines with dozens or even hundreds of cores on a single chip. This unprecedented level of on-chip parallelism introduces a new dimension to scalability that current database management systems (DBMSs) were not designed for. In particular, as the number of cores increases, the problem of concurrency control becomes extremely challenging. With hundreds of threads running in parallel, the complexity of coordinating… CONTINUE READING
