Dynamically Filtering Thread-Local Variables in Lazy-Lazy Hardware Transactional Memory
Abstract--Transactional Memory (TM) is an emerging technology which promises to make parallel programming easier. However, to be efficient, underlying TM system should protect only true shared data and leave thread-local data out of the transaction. This speed-up the commit phase of the transaction which is a bottleneck for a lazily versioned HTM. This paper proposes a scheme in the context of a lazylazy (lazy conflict detection and lazy data versioning) Hardware Transactional Memory (HTM) system to identify dynamically variables which are local to a thread and exclude them from the commitset of the transaction. Our proposal covers sharing of both stack and heap but also filters out local accesses to both of them. We also propose, in the same scheme, to identify local variables for which versioning need not be maintained. For evaluation, we have implemented a lazy-lazy model of HTM in line with the conventional and the scalable version of the TCC in a full system simulator. For operati...
