ABSTRACT In Transactional Memory (TM) if any two concurrently executing transactions perform conflicting data accesses, one of them is aborted. The transaction to be aborted is usually selected by some form of contention manager. Aborted transactions waste computing resources, and reduce performance. Ideally, concurrent execution of transactions would be ordered to minimize aborts, but such an ordering is often either complex, or unfeasible, to obtain.
