Atomic Counters or a Lesson on Performance and Hardware Concurrency

By Detlef Vollmann

If atomic<int> is good enough for you as a shared counter, then this session is not for you. However, if you're concerned about performance and scalability of parallel tasks that use shared objects, this session will explore the performance and scalability issues of atomic<T> and possible solutions to overcome these issues.

Intended audience:

This talk is for programmers and designers who care about performance scalability in a parallel world. Though examples will be in C++, the issues and solutions apply to other programming languages as well.
