Toward a Theory of Input Acceptance for Transactional Memories

  title={Toward a Theory of Input Acceptance for Transactional Memories},
  author={Vincent Gramoli and Derin Harmanci and Pascal Felber},
As opposed to database transactional systems, transactional memory (TM) systems are constrained by real-time while treating their input workload. Nevertheless, there is no clear formalization of how a TM should react regarding to a specific input. While TM performance is often measured in terms of throughput, i.e., commit-rate (by time unit), we consider the commit-abort ratio of a TM for a given input, as the number of transactions this TM commits over the total number of input transactions… CONTINUE READING
