(be sure to checkout the free sqlpassion performance tuning training plan - you get a weekly email packed with all the essential knowledge you need to know about performance tuning on sql server) a lock free algorithm protects a shared data structure through a non-blocking algorithm as you have. Lock-free data structures implement concurrent objects without the use of mutual exclusion this approach can avoid performance problems due to unpredictable delays while processes are within critical sections although universal methods are known that give lock-free data structures for any abstract. Lock free datastructures so what is so special about this function the answer to that is it is the main primitive for lock free data structures if we want to.
11 verifying invariants of lock-free data structures with rely-guarantee and reﬁnement types colin s gordon, drexel university michael d ernst and dan grossman, university of washington. The aba problem is a common problem when implementing lock-free data structures the problem occurs when updating an atomic variable using a compare_exchange operation: if the value a was read, thread 1 changes it to say c and tries to update the variable, it uses compare_exchange to write c, only if the current value is a. What good is a lock-free data structure that makes calls to non-lock-free library calls for our stack to be truly lock-free, we need a lock-free allocator data races.
Lock-free data structures are easier to design, constructions for many lock-free data structures are available in the litera- ture, including the stack , the linked-list , the skiplist.
