Productivity and Performance: Improving Consumability of Hardware Transactional Memory through a Real-World Case Study [chapter]

Huayong Wang, Yi Ge, Yanqi Wang, Yao Zou
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Hardware transactional memory (HTM) is a promising technology to improve the productivity of parallel programming. However, a general agreement has not been reached on the consumability of HTM.  ...  Based on the study of a typical commercial application in supply chain simulations -GBSE, we develop a general scheduling engine that encapsulates the HTM interface.  ...  Besides showing the improvement of productivity, we also evaluate the overall performance and analyze the factors that influence the performance.  ...
