Subject: Good Algorithm for "Multiple Readers"/"Multiple Writers"
Date: Thu, 08 Dec 2005 09:09:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I'm looking for a good, performant algorithm for "multiple
reader"/"multiple writer" locking.

I'm in the process of writing my own but I would rather not fall into
any common pitfalls, especially since performance & scalability are

Is anyone aware of whether POSIX implements this type of lock?  I can't
seem to find any reference to it in the POSIX documentation.

Cheers, Steve.
