The Common Case Transactional Behavior of Multithreaded Programs

JaeWoong Chung, H. Chafi, C. Cao Minh, A. McDonald, B. Carlstrom, C. Kozyrakis, K. Olukotun
The Twelfth International Symposium on High-Performance Computer Architecture, 2006.  
This work addresses this problem by analyzing the common case transactional behavior for 35 multithreaded programs from a wide range of application domains.  ...  However, the lack of transaction-based programs makes it difficult to understand the merits of each proposal and to tune future TM implementations to the common case behavior of real application.  ...  Experimental Methodology To provide detailed insights into the common case transactional behavior of real programs, we study a large set of existing multithreaded applications.  ...

Porting OMTTs to CORBA [chapter]

Raul Silaghi, Alfred Strohmeier, Jörg Kienzle
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The Common Object Request Broker Architecture standardizes a platform-and programming-language-independent distributed object computing environment.  ...  A blocking commit protocol ensures that once in a transaction, a thread cannot leave before the outcome of the transaction has been determined, guaranteeing the ACID properties for multithreaded transactions  ...  Two additional rules restrict thread behavior inside and outside of a multithreaded transaction: a thread created inside an open multithreaded transaction must also terminate inside the transaction; and  ...

Transactional execution: toward reliable, high-performance multithreading

2003 IEEE Micro  
Explicit hardware support for multithreaded software, either in the form of shared-memory chip multiprocessors or hardware multithreaded architectures, is becoming increasingly common.  ...  As hardware support for shared-memory applications, we have proposed the use of Transactional Lock Removal (TLR), 1 which ensures high performance while simplifying error-free programming and providing  ...  Explicit hardware support for multithreaded software, either in the form of shared-memory chip multiprocessors or hardware multithreaded architectures, is becoming increasingly common.  ...

An Empirical Study over Correctness Properties for Multithreaded Programs

Abdul Rahim Mohamed Ariffin, Isma Farah Siddiqui, Scott Uk-Jin Lee
2016 Indian Journal of Science and Technology  
With the findings of these properties, we also analyzed the high-priority and low-priority correctness properties for multithreaded programs.  ...  However, existing tools are still unable to discover all possible correctness properties for multithreaded programs and most of the tools only verifies deterministic multithreaded programs.  ...  A transaction schedule is serializable if its outcome is equal to the outcome all of its transactions which were executed serially 13 .  ...

Thread-safe dynamic binary translation using transactional memory

JaeWoong Chung, Michael Dalton, Hari Kannan, Christos Kozyrakis
2008 High-Performance Computer Architecture  
This paper presents a practical solution for correct execution of multithreaded programs within DBT frameworks. To eliminate races involving metadata, we propose the use of transactional memory (TM).  ...  This is the first such framework that correctly handles multithreaded binaries without serialization. We show that the use of software transactions in the DBT leads to a runtime overhead of 40%.  ...  None of these solutions are satisfactory. First, multithreaded programs are becoming increasingly common due to the availability of multi-core chips.  ...

SingleTrack: A Dynamic Determinism Checker for Multithreaded Programs [chapter]

Caitlin Sadowski, Stephen N. Freund, Cormac Flanagan
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Multithreaded programs are prone to errors caused by unintended interference between concurrent threads.  ...  Such code does not satisfy the traditional non-interference property of atomicity (or serializability), however, and so existing atomicity tools are inadequate for checking deterministically-parallel code  ...  In either case, the relative scheduling of threads in subcomputations does not affect the program's overall behavior.  ...

Observationally Cooperative Multithreading [article]

2015 arXiv   pre-print
Programmers can also defer the choice of concurrency-control mechanism (e.g., locks or transactions) until after they have written their programs, at which point they can compare concurrency-control strategies  ...  Programmers write code using the well-understood cooperative (i.e., nonpreemptive) multithreading model for uniprocessors.  ...  The observable behavior of programs is consistent with execution on a uniprocessor with cooperative multithreading, even if behind the scenes threads are running simultaneously or preempting one another  ...

2020 Programming Persistent Memory  
The first section of this chapter highlights common practical solutions for building multithreaded applications for persistent memory.  ...  We describe the limitation of the Persistent Memory Development Kit (PMDK) transactional libraries, such as libpmemobj and libpmemobj-cpp, for concurrent execution.  ...  It forces data inconsistency issues in cases of abnormal program termination or transaction aborts.  ...

Effects of multithreading on cache performance

H. Kwak, B. Lee, A.R. Hurson, Suk-Han Yoon, Woo-Jong Hahn
1999 IEEE transactions on computers  
The performance of multithreading is not only affected by the overlapping of memory latency with useful computation, but also strongly depends on the cache behavior and the overhead of multithreading (  ...  Also, the dynamic behavior of multithreaded execution hinders the instruction locality that results in a high number of misses in the L1 instruction cache.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The authors would like to thank ETRI for their support and the valuable comments from reviewers.  ...
