A survey on optimizations towards best-effort hardware transactional memory

Zhenwei Wu, Kai Lu, Ruibo Wang, Wenzhe Zhang
2020 CCF Transactions on High Performance Computing  
Hardware transactional memory (HTM) has become commercially available in mainstream processors, however, due to several inherent architectural limitations that will abort hardware transactions, such as  ...  In this paper, we survey state-of-the-art software-side optimizations for best-effort hardware transaction system, as well as several novel performance tuning techniques.  ...  As software memory transactions are free from the hardware constrains of the hardware ones, TSXProf achieves to incorporate existing profiling tools targeting software transactional memory (Chakrabarti  ...
