One Line Summary

We need mechanisms that do for update-mostly workloads that what RCU does for read-mostly workloads.


Although RCU is fine with the occasional update, and can sometimes be useful in the face of a significant fraction of updates, it is less helpful in situations where pretty much all accesses are updates. This talk will review a couple of special cases where update-friendly synchronization mechanisms exist in the hope of sparking discussions leading to more of them.


locking, scalability, concurrency
