Friendly Barriers: Efficient Work-Stealing With Return Barriers

Kumar, Vivek; Blackburn, Stephen; Grove, David


This paper addresses the problem of efficiently supporting parallelism within a managed runtime. A popular approach for exploiting software parallelism on parallel hardware is task parallelism, where the programmer explicitly identifies potential parallelism and the runtime then schedules the work. Work-stealing is a promising scheduling strategy that a runtime may use to keep otherwise idle hardware busy while relieving overloaded hardware of its burden. However, work-stealing comes with...[Show more]
