Memory Management for Lock-Free Data-Structures Petrank, Erez


Lock-free data structures achieve high responsiveness, aid scalability, and avoid deadlocks and livelocks. But providing memory management support for such data structures without foiling their progress guarantees is difficult. Often, designers employ the hazard pointers technique, which may imposes a high performance overhead. In this talk we present the optimistic access scheme that provides efficient reclamation support for lock-free data-structures and also some automatization.
