Multicore Application Programming: For Windows, Linux, and Oracle Solaris (Developer's Library)by Darryl Gove
Synopses & Reviews
Write High-Performance, Highly Scalable Multicore Applications for Leading Platforms
Multicore Application Programming is a comprehensive, practical guide to high-performance multicore programming that any experienced developer can use.
Author Darryl Gove covers the leading approaches to parallelization on Windows, Linux, and Oracle Solaris. Through practical examples, he illuminates the challenges involved in writing applications that fully utilize multicore processors, helping you produce applications that are functionally correct, offer superior performance, and scale well to eight cores, sixteen cores, and beyond.
The book reveals how specific hardware implementations impact application performance and shows how to avoid common pitfalls. Step by step, you’ll write applications that can handle large numbers of parallel threads, and you’ll master advanced parallelization techniques. You’ll learn how to
Multicore Application Programming isn’t wedded to a single approach or platform: It is for every experienced C programmer working with any contemporary multicore processor in any leading operating system environment.
Book News Annotation:
Intended for intermediate programmers familiar with C or similar languages, this guide outlines principles and techniques for writing applications that can take advantage of the parallel computation capabilities of modern, multi-core computer processors. Covering programming for both Microsoft Windows and POSIX-centered operating systems (UNIX, Linux and Oracle's Solaris), chapters cover such topics as coding for performance, synchronization and data sharing, POSIX and Windows threading and scaling with multi-core processors. The work includes numerous illustrations and code examples and access to additional online information is provided. Gove is a senior software engineer for Oracle and an expert on Solaris programming.
