General and efficient locking without blocking
Standard concurrency control mechanisms offer a trade-off: Transactional memory approaches maximize concurrency, but suffer high overheads and cost for retrying in the case of act...

Instruction cache locking using temporal reuse profile
The performance of most embedded systems is critically dependent on the average memory access latency. Improving the cache hit rate can have significant positive impact on the per...

Insensitive versus efficient dynamic load balancing in networks without blocking
So-called Whittle networks have recently been shown to give tight approximations for the performance of non-locally balanced networks with blocking, including practical routing pol...

WCET-centric partial instruction cache locking
Caches play an important role in embedded systems by bridging the performance gap between high speed processors and slow memory. At the same time, caches introduce imprecision in ...

Meta-analysis for Atomicity Violations under Nested Locking
Abstract. We study the problem of determining, given a run of a concurrent program, whether there is any alternate execution of it that violates atomicity, where atomicity is defin...
