Title : Zero-cost synchronization: Fact or fiction? RCU and other stories

Date : Friday, February 28, 2020

Time : 4:00 PM

Venue : CSA Seminar Hall (Room No. 254, First Floor)


With proliferation of commodity multicore systems, low cost synchronization is critical for scaling. The read-copy-update (RCU) mechanism has been used for this purpose since the last 4 decades. We analyse this and a few other related mechanisms, and discuss our work in this context (such as memory management, virtualization and fault tolerance).
