The Message Passing Interface (MPI) 3.0 standard, introduced in September 2012, includes a significant update to the one-sided communication interface, also known as remote memory access (RMA). In particular, the interface has been extended to...
Supporting Time-Based QoS Requirements in Software Transactional Memory
Walther Maldonado, Patrick Marlier, Pascal Felber, Julia Lawall, Gilles Muller, Etienne Rivière
Article No.: 10
Software transactional memory (STM) is an optimistic concurrency control mechanism that simplifies parallel programming. However, there has been little interest in its applicability to reactive applications in which there is a required response...
TRADE: Precise Dynamic Race Detection for Scalable Transactional Memory Systems
Gokcen Kestor, Osman S. Unsal, Adrian Cristal, Serdar Tasiran
Article No.: 11
As other multithreaded programs, transactional memory (TM) programs are prone to race conditions. Previous work focuses on extending existing definitions of data race for lock-based applications to TM applications, which requires all transactions...
Time-Warp: Efficient Abort Reduction in Transactional Memory
Nuno Diegues, Paolo Romano
Article No.: 12
The multicore revolution that took place one decade ago has turned parallel programming into a major concern for the mainstream software development industry. In this context, Transactional Memory (TM) has emerged as a simpler and attractive...
Parallel Scheduling of Task Trees with Limited Memory
Lionel Eyraud-Dubois, Loris Marchal, Oliver Sinnen, Frédéric Vivien
Article No.: 13
This article investigates the execution of tree-shaped task graphs using multiple processors. Each edge of such a tree represents some large data. A task can only be executed if all input and output data fit into memory, and a data can only be...
